Not only beacose of power. SR8s downforce is much bigger. It very important.

The SR8 is a n/a V8 with a much better power delivery, in a track race car a n/a is always the better choose. Turbo can produce a higher power but mostly it comes together with a small usefull powerband.
Look at the F1.. in the past they had much more power from smaller turbo engines.. but driving them was a pain in the ass.
Both laps were driven on nearly empty tracks.. the SR8 only passed one car a Mercedes SL AMG on the last corner to the long straight.. costing him less than a second. The SR3 Turbo lap was clear but if I am not wrong they only had time for one hot lap..

You have to think about the weather and the traffic. One reason the GT-R did a 7:29 is because they went around track before it opened (or it was right when it opened). The track could have been wet or cold so the tires did not heat up.

Why's the SR8 so much faster than the SR3 turbo around the Nordschleife?
The SR3 turbo seems to have an advantage in terms of power/weight...
Is the SR8's chassi, aerodynamics, breaks etc so much better?
6.55->7.19 means 24 seconds; that's quite a big diffference...
