I think I've found an anomaly with your compare programme. When comparing a Mazda 3 MPS (Mk1) with Ford Focus RS (Mk1), the Mazda wins 3 of the 5 track times (and one of the times the Mazda loses is a wet track), plus the Mazda has a higher top speed AND faster acceration times but the verdict is that the "Ford Focus RS is noticeably faster" - howcan that be true??
