Guy Martin and his Tyco BMW Superbike take on David Coulthard and a Red Bull RB8 Formula 1 car in a series of head-to-head challenges including a drag race, a brake test, a slalom and a circuit race. The showdown takes place at the legendary F1 track Silverstone.

The Red Bull RB8 Formula 1 car is the same one that won the constructors’ championship in 2012 and gave Sebastian Vettel the championship crown. The RB8 won 7 out of 20 races and got on the podium a grand total of 14 times during the 2012 season. So this is arguably one of the best Formula 1 cars ever built.

Martin rides on a Tyco BMW Superbike based on a BMW S 1000 RR, so this is far from a fair fight. But to make things more interesting, Coulthard agrees to complete four laps before Martin passes the checkered flag three times.

Let’s have a look.

Would love to see that with a MotoGP bike. The car would still win, but the bike would be much closer.

I really like Guy Martin. He's a great rider and he really impressed me when I was watching the Isle of Man motorcycle races last year...I just wish he didn't talk so fast, as I have a hard time understanding him.

Hmmm!


REMATCH


Same gear, 3 laps of the TT circuit (if DCs nerves hold).


Now I would pay to see that.
F1 car at Bray Hill, the bridge, Ramsey hairpin, Gooseneck.


Heck! I've got goosebumps just pondering the idea.>:D


Check out Guys 3D TT vid, closer to the edge.
You'll need subtitles. He gets a bit hyper.:grin:
