Man, this time is horrible. I know Mustangs aren't that great on the track, but that's just abysmal...

There are great Mustangs for the track it just always seems like Ford doesn't want to bring the right packages to Europe (Handling Package in this case). Additionally it also seems like many European magazine testers struggle with cars that - for the lack of a better term - need to be manhandled (RWD, manual trans cars with lots of power and not always that much traction).

Exactly my point. Remember when sport auto tested the GT500 and it's slower than an M8 Competition? I remember Randy Pobst was just as fast as a GT3 RS on similar tires.
I probably put my sentence wrong. Cause Camaros tend to gap Mustangs on the track.

The big difference was that Randy Pobsts GT500 had the CFTP-package with radical aero and semi slick-tires while the Sport Auto-GT500 was a base model - it's sadly always the case that Mustangs in Europe lack the sporty packages that are always a given in US-tests.

I do agree though, in general Camaros are faster than Mustangs if the power output is comparable (exception: Shelby GT350 R).
