I find it very hard to believe the GT3 beat the AMG by alnost a second...

Beating a Z06 as well... indeed quite impressive, but apparently it happened. The 991.2 has been quite impressive throughout the whole range

In the video they were saying that the AMG GTR does not handle bumps or impurities in the road that well and can get off balance really easily. Willows of Springs is a very bumpy track and the AMG GTR had issues putting down power at many different points of the track.

may be a question of the setup. on nordschleife (a bumpy track as well) the AMG GTR "handles" amazing.
