A GT3 can put all the power down exiting every corner, and can go around corners pretty well also.

The fun thing about running our Faceoff and Ultimate Street Car Invitational events is that the longer we run them, the wider the variety of vehicles we get to participate. When folks start speculating and bench racing, we can actually provide examples of what happened in the real world. We'd love to get a GT3 out to one of our events, but haven't been able to talk anyone into it yet. We did have a Carrera GT participate in our Faceoff event at Road America last year. The driver seemed decent and he did beat just about everyone there, but a 2010 Camaro and 1967 Camaro both finished ahead of him in the overall standings, although he was faster than the '67 Camaro on the road course.
