How Do Rally Drivers Differ From Road Course Drivers?

Let's say you took two rally drivers and two circuit drivers and then put them in the same Mitsubishi Evo on the same tarmac road course? How would the two groups of drivers handle the circuit differently?

Ostensibly this Best Motoring piece is about who is fastest, but that's all kind of arbitrary. Much more interesting is watching how the rally guys think about the weight of the car and driving past the limit of traction, whereas the circuit guys think about the tires and driving right on the limit of traction.


Actually, I'm wrong. This Best Motoring video is really about how amazingly weird Gilles Panizzi is.
