    Power to Weight ratio is the specific power of the car.
    For example:
    I'm a karting driver, my kart weights 150kg (driver included), the engine has a power of 45hp.
    The Power to Weight ratio is: 150/45=3,33kg/hp
    Porsche 911 GT2 has a power to weight ratio of 2,21kg/hp, while a F1 car 0,83kg/hp.
    Normal everyday cars usually have power to weight ratio from 10 to 15 kg/hp.
    This is just a quick explanation with some examples, hope it was useful to understand power to weight ratio datas.
