What a puss. That's like playing kickball with a bunch of 1st graders to practice for soccer. I specifically try to race cars I know "should" beat me. That way, if I do well, I know it was more me than my car.
Any idiot with a heavy foot can win a race with a fast car. (think MILF in an automatic ZO6)
To the idiot with the best driving skills go the true spoils. Never underestimate the ability to actually drive your car to make up for any HP deficiencies.
Anyway, it woulda been fun!
