The Ferrari F50 GT’s out of the box pace was quite impressive, with Larini clocking faster lap times than the 333 SP prototype racer.

Ferrari F50 GT

While stiff competition from Porsche, Mercedes Benz and Toyota were have also been mentioned, I believe competition wasn't a factor detouring Ferrari from racing, more limited resources and money to develop the F50 GT alongside the F1 and 333SP cars.
