everyone forgetting one point here, Daewoo racer , engine and body designs came from Opel, Germany and that was produced in UK as Vauxhall at some point. and that old vauxhall vectra type car still beat many cars here and favourite with teenage racers.
so dont take it as its just korean car, all above three models are same original designed and produced in Germany first. building in korea may have taken few BHPs but i dont think it will just loose power massively.
I have driven racer couple of time only. similar experience on cultus.
cultus can beat this daewoo if its 1.3 EFI or over cause of its light weight
