Thanks to everyone for joining us for this race:
– Red Bull: @redbullracing
– ES Motors:
Mat's behind the wheel of a 991 generation Porsche 911 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 carwow runway today so it's been reined in a bit to "just" 1,200 hp.
Lining up beside the Porsche is Liam Lawson in the Red Bull RB8 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 Dani Pedrosa. 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!
