Hmmm... seriously kicked some Nissan butt at VIR. Not a great showing by the 370Z even though it was the competition oriented Nismo version. Also a bit of a brake problem with the Nismo as I recall, caused a rare Car and Driver crash. Similar price for these cars, guess I picked the better sportscar.
