Thats what I said! Is it possible???
And why is it only on Kyalami where the X6 beats the R8?
On other tracks it didnt post such impressive times compared to other cars.

Cars in Action magazine in South Africa is known to be biased towards BMW's. For this reason many people aren't buying the mag anymore. It is also a well know fact that the owners and editors of the magazine only drive BMW cars. I agree that all Cars In Action submissions should be removed.

WTF? BMW bt R8?  14y ago

How on God's Green Earth will a BMW pavement sepcial ever beat a R8? I know, it is because all Cars in Action employees will lose their company cars if they are not biased to BMW. Remove all Cars in Actions times submitted.
