If I knew Japanese I bet it would have been a funny race to listen to.

Either way, I like how the GT-R somehow managed to blow the doors off the LP640 on the last leg of the last lap

Its a little funny to see the LP640 hit the brakes at the end of the final lap n let the gtr pass... not that the GTR didnt do a facinating job of catching up.. its truly a beast..

^^ I was amused as well. Two laps earlier same straight the GT-R driver was shaking the wheel for speed as he lost ground to the LP640. But through the corners the GT-R was definately shrinking/maintaining the gap the corner exit speed is amazing.

amazing video...but I still dont see how the GTR pulled on the LP640 on the final straight. It looked as though the 911 was slowly walking the GTR on the straights.

The Exige got the launch.. and thus.. all the bragging rights in my book. I love that he short-shifted 1st gear on his launch and still pulled away from them.

Did he completely jump the gun or something?

I bet if you went on sheer fun, the Exige would win, followed by the 911. The GT-R is very impressive.. but looks boring to drive.

This isn't a secret, the 911 Turbo is slightly faster straight-line than the GT-R at speed. It's in the corners that the GT-R eats it up.

Regarding the Lambo, yeah either the driver gave it up or botched his exit on the final turn there. I'm guessing he threw it because the final turn on that track isn't easy to screw up. The fact that the GT-R could catch it speaks miles though, he would have passed eventually anyway.

For those thinking it's iffy that the GT-R passed the Lambo on the last straight, the Lamo driver said something along the lines of he's out of gas or he had some kind of fuel cut around the last corner. I don't think it would have lost otherwise.

I was saying it's iffy how the GT-R passed the Lambo. The GT-R was running faster; it definitely would have legitimately passed the Lambo at some point, given another lap or two. It just looked forced with the Lambo suddenly slowing down right before the finish. If the Lambo driver had some fuel problems, most of us didn't understand that since we don't speak Japanese.

I mean, boring compared to that crowd. My WRX is boring compared to a GT-R, no doubt.

Yeah, I know that, and I knew someone was going to say it eventually.

Regardless, what I said holds true: The GT-R would have eventually passed. Itís unsurprising the GT-R can catch an LP640, especially on a short track like Tsukuba. The GT-Rís handling/exit speed is outrageous, and Lamboís are not tuned to be track cars.

That's Twin Ring Motegi, about double the length of Tsukuba's. I was actually more surprised of the Lambos' performance, they were a lot slower, especially the early Murcielagos BM tested long time ago.

yah I wasnt saying the GTR is a better handler, I was just making an observation.

The Murcei's are pigs in the corners for what they are.
