These are my favourites, no Ferraris, lambos, Mclarens, Porsches. Just stock sports racers. Which would you choose and why? Have anything else you would like to add?

BMW M3 (E36) for me. I respect Japanese cars but don't love them. The BMW M3 is one of my favourites and the older, the better.

Hey Are u talking about a Drag Race or a Track Race ? Well in the DRAG has to be the Supra cause that is the only car which can take a beating of 1200 + HP. The Skyline can malfunction at more than 800+ HP. These cars Im talking about are Personally owned and not By Huge Racing Corporations. Althogh on the Track it would have to be the Evo and second Favourite the M3.

I'd take the EVO VIII next the Impreza and the M3. For a drag it has to be a well tuned Supra

Cheers

Im assuming you are talking about closed circuit racing, or anything that has corners. In that case i would definitely pick the E46 M3.

Wow most of u guys went the supra way, I didnt expect that. I have a video of a supra doing 8.9 secs that is straight line racing for you. I have another video of the M3 vs Modena vs Evo VII. The evo VII took the prize believe it or not. But my personal fav is def the GTR. Like jeremy clarkson says the 50 thousand pound playstation.

GTR for me, Extreme racer with straightline as well as cornering skills. Is also very very difficult to master
