The Z3 is with 321hp n/a more powerfull and much lighter as the GTO(650lbs) that should give it a huge advantage on the race track.

1:08 in Tsukuba totally stock its a good time,no very good but its faster than a 4WD Mitsubishi GTO and Ferrari 512TR
Maybe the "traffic" of the race its
a one problem

Is there a source backing up the Tsukuba laptime?
I have seen a video of the Z3 M Roadster (in green) best motoring test unfortunatily at youtube they did not show the laptime. At that Best Motoring Tsukuba battel the the Z3 M Roadster EASY pass NSX, Caterham Super7, RX-7, S2000, S15 cars listed all a lot faster in this list.. for that reason I am little bit confused by the slow laptime..

here is the video unfortunatily it is chopped
