C63 507 vs. V8 Supercar vs. Red Bull F1

Pretty cool little exercise.

Skip to 5:33 for the start of the race. Everything prior to that is mostly introduction (unless you want to see the F1 car warming up).

Seems pretty pointless since you basically decide the winner in advance when setting the headstart times. Also, since there's obviously nothing at stake you can hardly imagine that anyone is really pushing it.

Remake of a classic... "meantime, Coulthard is checking his investments". Miss that F1 sound. God that new engine sounds awful.

I wouldn't call them pointless. These tiered match-ups are an entertaining way to put things in perspective.

Of course nothing is at stake. This is supposed to be fun/entertainment. And I disagree that no one was pushing it. Near the end, the C63 had some oversteer through one turn and even clipped some grass going flat-out after the apex in another.

It didn't look like the V8 Supercar and RB F1 were coasting either.

I'd also argue the opposite regarding the "head start times." If they would've all started at the same time, it wouldn't have been a "race" at all.

The point of setting the start times was to show you the disparity between different variants of race and street cars.

The goal was to have them all finish at around the same time by way of starting at different times.
