Suspect

I think a Sierra Cossie would absolutely nail some of those 'muscle' cars on our B roads, they wouldn't stand a chance.

Jokes all about Brit cars... I'm not sure though, I've found some of the muscle cars to be to be quite competitive in spots, especially the '70 Challenger. Those things absolutely nailed all the other cars at places like Mugello.

Might just be me, but this could possibly make a good event too, even if its only a one-shot deal. American muscle vs. British.

Haaa... an RS500 Turbo as run by Steve Soper would beat the crap out of any US muscle car. Same with a VT Commie! If I remember correctly, the Mustang got TROUNCED in the DTM by the Sierra's and M3's. And the Group C Big Banger Mazda RX-7 could beat any Camaro, Falcon or Mustang at Bathurst easily Wink

and in DTM, the mustang was given to two german dudes...and was asked to go up against the factory backed teams.

privateer VS big money manf. teams.

An RS500 WAS a road car though, the touring car had very few modifications to it. A lightweight RWD 500hp Turbo isn't a ''Leaky little brit car'', which was my point!

I also compared race muscle cars to race non-muscle cars.

I think the point is Euro cars win in the curves and American cars get it on the Straights.

Corners = American Kryptonite

Straights = Euro weakpoint

This should seriously be a competition to settle the score!!!

-America doesn't necessarily have the same landscape as Euro, such as twisty, windy curves so the cars aren't focused as much on tightness.
Only exception is HOT ROD mag's competititon where some guys got an '09 Challenger to do the slalom in the same amount of time as a Nissan 350Z (Fairlady) or the guy who got a '68 Camaro with 500+hp to run a a track with close to the same amount of lat. g's as a Porsche 911..
-Offhand, there is such runs like Cannonball Run where American cars have just as much notorious wins and is not a straight-line run..

I also think Jeremy should consider that the Mustang is at least 3 times as heavy, and big as the Lotus on a twisty windy track, so the Mustang being beaten by what looks like maybe two car lengths max is pretty damn good!

lol Ive never said American cars were useless in corners,

just that European cars are generally better!

And american cars are better in a straight line.

I was happy to leave it at the "they can both do one thing better than the other can" nice lil equalibrium comprimise... but everyonge else had other ideas!

This is why touring car racing is pointless these days! If this were the 70's we could just wait till Brands to settle it!
