"Usually" When you put a Pure Track Focused car against the latter...The outcome should in no way be surprising..

@ Shaggy: It's simple. That's because Lotus is lighter and more agile on corner than Corvette.

Interesting comparasion.
Tack oriented light mid engined British aggresive bug.
Vs American sporty cruiser.

Its more about the destination.
Corvette better on highway, Lotus on the corners.
