wrong-o, buddy. the M3's were so dominant that the SCCA, USRRA, FIA, etc. mandated that weights were to be added to try to level the playing field. didn't work quite as well as they had planned...M3's still are the dominant car in their class!


Same thing happened in the UK with the BTCC series. BMW got pissed off at being penalised for other manufacturers' FWD deficiencies and pulled out.
