Question SVT vs S2000 vs Z4?? (On the Track)

Shouldnt the S2000 and Z4 smoke my SVT?
I'm just wondering because I came up to an S2000 on a track in some twisties and he actually was slowing me down, at the straights he creeped away from me, but at the twisties i had no trouble overtaking him, I was under the impression that the S2000 was all around a better performer than my basically stock SVT...
Now as the Z4 is concerned, I came up to him on a more striaght oriented track and I had no trouble overtaking him on striaghaways, and since there werent many twisties I didn't really get to test against him there...
whats going on? aren't these 2 seaters faster and tighter than my SVT? I mean I've smoked my friend in his 90 miata, but thats because its a stock 90 miata... whats going on here??

Don't worry, the S2000 was probably just being piloted poorly. The AStock S2000 at my local club is dead fast, curvy lines or straight. I know nothing about Z4s, but... our cars not being known as straight line machines, that's just odd. Research seems to indicate you can get a Z4 with a 2.5l I6 which isn't all that much more powerful than our engines...

bad drivers. there is a reason why s2000 are in A stock, and Z4 in (im guessing) b or d stock. and the SVT is in G stock at the auto-x. Granted in road racing the field might level (idk, i only crush cones)

I've only been into racing for a few years (7ish) and Ive only been driving the SVT for a year and a half now, and I'm still cautious with it, before the SVT i was a straight line racer (5.0 fox baby) doesnt take much skill at the power level i was racing (300rwhp), so i decided to jump to a different car since my "race car" is also my daily driver it has to be street legal and streetable, but i mean i was just sure that the z4 and s2000 were faster and tighter; i mean it could have been a base model z4, but i think both drivers were just inexperianced or babying it, leaning towards inexperianced since they both did some pretty stupid stuff...
