Nissan GT-R vs. Formula 3

Recently British motoring magazine, Autocar, visited the Pembrey circuit in Wales test Jean-Eric Vergne’s recent British Formula 3 Championship winner against Nissan’s revised GT-R.
The test, with Autocar scribbler and former racer Steve Sutcliffe, set out to compare Carlin Motorsport’s lightweight F3 car with Nissan’s brutal, but powerful road goer. 

Admittedly, conditions for the test were hardly ideal – it had been raining heavily – but that was not to deter Sutcliffe as guided the pair of machines around Pembrey’s tight and twisty layout.  Unsurprisingly, the nimble Formula 3 machine was indeed quicker around the Welsh countryside circuit, but whether or not it handles as sweetly as the Nissan is another matter.
To be honest, I’d still rather have the Formula 3 car any day of the week.
