I have discussed this with a few racer's in our group. So we compared several 
cars. Some with wide ratios and some with close ratios.
The cars with the close ratios shifting a lot more, f. i. from 2nd up to 4th 
while the guys with tho long ratios went from 3rd to 4th.

The close ratio cars were ALL faster. The less shifting does not compensate 
beeing off the maximum power curve of the engine.
