Whether the manual would have did better is debatable,...

How much faster would it be? ".1" seconds? .2 seconds? So your really telling me that stock vs stock the manual transmission is better than the automatic?
On a road course generally Manuals are better. Now if we're talking an M3 with that dual clutch set up that has zero hesitation in manual mode.... then no.... there is no difference.

but our auto vs our manual in the correct traction mode, The manual is faster on a road course.
