A good driver makes all the difference.
The ring taxi is a pretty neat idea. The basic idea is that you can go to the Nurburgring in Germany, and pay the "taxi driver" to take you on a hot lap of the historic track. These drivers must be pretty good to be able to make it around one of the most complex tracks in the world. Surely they could keep up with lesser drivers in faster cars. Recent footage from a BMW M3 ring taxi shows how one of these drivers manages to keep up with a Lamborghini Aventador SV and Porsche Cayman GT4.
