Racing a bunch of FSD cars on a track

I would love to see a bunch of FSD cars racing on a track. But I have questions:
1. How would they behave?
2. Could they "learn" track etiquette?
3. How fast would/could they go?
4. Could they eventually be able to drive a track better/faster than a human driver?
5. How many accidents would there be?
6. Could FSD be distracted by a random traffic cone or a cute Porsche Taycan?
Anyway, it's just a thought. All y'alls have a great day and I look forward to the discussion.

It was done in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge:


MIT Talos was passing the chase vehicle and then another on the right but the one on the right didn't stand for being cut-off and hit Talos: The one who hits would be expelled while the one (Talos in this case) who's hit can stay in the race.

Cool! I will read up on that.
But one thing would be to see if FSD cars experience road rage... if so, then they must be sentient... :^)
Thanks!
