McLaren MP4-12C vs Honda Civic BTCC racer vs Honda Fireblade British Superbike

We took a McLaren 12C to Rockingham Motor Speedway to face its toughest
challenge yet. Could it outpace a Honda Civic BTCC racer driven by former
champion Gordon Shedden and the pairing of 2013 British Superbike champion
Alex Lowes and his Samsung Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade? Which would set the
fastest lap? Would the Civic's superior grip make up for the power deficit?
Would the McLaren be too much to match on the straight? Or would the 'Blade
offer a blend of light weight and high performance impossible to match?
