Whos says it can't handle? That's a relative statment anyways. Handled great when I took my bone stock car to the track. Cooked the crap out of the brakes, but aside from that, it did great.

It's in the desert, it's often incredibly hot and can be very windy, especially in the afternoon. Turbo cars can heatsoak there like a mofo.
Anyways, for sure different tracks will yield different results. Out of all the local tracks Streets of Willow is the closest to a canyon road. Being able to put power down out of corners and having good torque to pull you out of them counts for a lot.
The 2.5 mile big track, Willow Springs International Raceway will favor much more powerful cars like the current M3 or a Corvette and the WRX will be much slower, drivers being equal of course.
