I agree to a point Kev, but i also see the other side of the debate & that too is a fair one.That's all well and good segregating stock v tuned but you still get the man that wants to
be the fastest,what will happen in my book, who can afford the fastest stock!!..What was the Ferrari worth 1.5m ??? is that fair to the Jag man?
These events are a bit of Fun, and should be kept to Road cars Fast Faster and Fastest ( I bet there were quite a few tuned stock cars Lol)
I've no idea if the LaF could be tuned, i'd hazard a guess it's owner wouldn't want to but it's a less fair competition when it's stock vs. tuned & especially so when the tuned is best described as bespoke. Lots of 600-650 bhp GT-R's, in fact i'd say most are at that level of power, only a select few are over 900 & even less at 1200.
A Qashqai with double the power of most other runners is going to take some scalps. The LaF is over 200bhp down & the the Porsches even less power. The Veyron is the closest in power but that's nearly a ton heavier so again it's more about genuine competition.
TBH, it's the GT-R's that have thrown this game wide open as no doubting their performance & is always chuckle material when they beat such impressive competition.
