I'm guessing it has to do with power to weight ratio and the rules. Even if you have a lighter car they'll add weight to you car to make the competition more even. My brother ran into this issue in Grand Am with the Z4 he drove. His car was pretty light and had about 250hp but they added a 170-lb block of metal to the car.
