I think the weight makes it easier and more predictable to drive in the hands of the average man.

More predictable and consistent means more confidence inspiring and therefore faster on track in the hands of someone who is not a race driver.

if you remove the inability of the driver to take the car by the scruff of the neck and force it around a track then the lighter car will be quicker. That would explain why the race versions and the nismo versions aim to cut out weight, they rely on better than average drivers to make more use of their performance.
