This comparison is definitely wrong. Alfa wins! At the Ring Alfa has marked its fastest lap driven by a journalist, on a single lap, and was a stock car. Seat has marked its fastest lap time with a professional driver during a long run in development session and probably with non-stock tires.
Give to Alfa a professional driver and a long run on the Ring, and you'll see its real potential!
No doubt Alfa 4C is noticeably faster!!!

Cupra 280 NR laptime is suspect in many areas, same as many other producer laptimes. It almost always not a stock car. And number of trays is radical. But that big money does in marketing.

I still dont know how the script works, Leon has few seconds adventage is NR lap time but its a longer thrack so the diffrences are larger.
So maybe it should that if thrack is longer the time difrences should be scaled to proportion of the overall time lenght.

Maybe you, Mr, are an arsehole? What 4 tracks? 4C has worse track score, because it loses so badly on the Nordschleife.

Alfa Romeo is faster in 3 out of 4 tracks, has better top speed and better acceleration... but Seat is "noticeably faster". This site is an *******!
