F1 vs Moto GP vs 1,400hp Porsche: DRAG RACE

Thanks to everyone for joining us for this race:
– Red Bull: @redbullracing
– ES Motors:

Can a outrun a Formula 1 vehicle and a Moto GP bike? You're in the ideal place to learn!

Mat's behind the wheel of a 991 generation Porsche Turbo S for this race, and it's been fettled by the folks at ES Motor. The engine has been fully constructed, upping the capability from 3.8 litres to 4.2 litres, and it can put out 1,400 hp to the wheels. However, it's a touch damp out on the runway today so it's been reined in a bit to "just" 1,200 hp.

Lining up beside the Porsche is in the Red Bull Formula 1 cars and truck, the same one which took Sebastian Vettel to success in the 2012 world championship. It's powered by a 2.4-litre naturally-aspirated V8 with 800hp, which may look like a massive deficit over the Porsche but it is significantly lighter than that cars and truck. It suggestions the scales at around 700kg, compared to around 1,700 kg for the 911.

Lastly then, let's have a look at the two-wheeled offering. Taking the helm of the Red Bull KTM RC16 is none aside from . His bike has a 1,000 CC V4 engine with 270hp, sufficient in a lorry which weighs simply 157kg and only has one wheel to put the power down.

The concern is, can a road legal, day-to-day drivable Porsche 911 actually be a match for these two purpose-built racing makers? There's just one method to discover … LET'S RACE!

      Mat, you still need a proper Nissan GT-R with 3500 horsepower, which is available from the U.S. market… Also, once you order a Koenigsegg Gemera, it is game over for Rimac Nevera, F1 and Moto GP… That will be the new King of Speed.

      You should race that Porsche 911 Turbo S against the tuned Huracan and the tuned gtr, that would be legendary πŸ”₯

      Even compared to other moto gp riders, Pedrosa’s launches are legendary

      He weighs nothing. Simply a higher power to weight ratio.

    Jesus Christ, imagine doing 8.6 on a bike in the wet. I bet Danny’s launch was so good because of his bronze balls helping traction.

      Well true. Pedrosa’s launch is on another level.

    So Liam Lawson went from drag racing on Carwow to scoring points in Singapore… damn that’s impressive

    1. BKAM Avatar

      And maybe in Japan as well

      While I LOVE Riccardo it’s been awesome to see Liam do so incredibly well – the first/only person to ever score points as a rookie at Singapore – hope he gets a seat next year…

      No wonder he scored in Singapore, he was trained by the GOAT, mr Mat Watson.

    5. Cloxxki Avatar

      See how he handled a season of DTM alongside Alex Albon. Almost a punishment season for the two of them. Liam got the title stolen from him. Red Bull put out a whole video series about it. Liam is the real deal, can achieve a high level very early on.

      Yep. Almost get the win on both Sprint and Feature Races.

    It was great to see Dani as a wildcard back in MotoGP. Amazing he managed 4th in both races after retiring; fantastic skills.
