Last night at our local 1/8 mile track I ran into a couple guys. One with a new WRX and the other with a new GT. They were friends and they wanted to know who's car was faster. Both cars were bone stock. Before they raced they asked me who I thought would win. I said it should be close but I think the GT should be able to win. I was soon proved wrong. They raced 5 times.
The WRX won every race. Even with a inexperienced driver pulling 2.1 -2.2 60' times, which we know are real bad for a WRX.
The races were close. The WRX would take the early lead even with the bad 60' times and the GT would try to play catch up. The WRX was able to stay out front every time. They were very evenly matched stock vs stock. If they had been racing a full 1/4 mile the GT would have probably pulled ahead at the end but only slightly. Either way it would have been a good race.
They were both running in the low to mid 9s on average.
I just thought it was interesting to see a stock WRX racing a stock GT.
