Depends on the track too.
Some tracks don't have a configuration to allow a higher powered car to use it's power advantage.
I agree with this point. But most ppl enthusiast or not are getting more power and more handling done to their cars when they can't even take stock to the limits (including myself). There are professionals and those that take turns slow and then mash on the gas on straights and are fast because they are in say an m3 . What are the chances that owners can achieve lap times equal to the professionals hired to do all the testing. I'm not saying one should not do it because I would too.
