seemed failry equal however it would be more fair for both if they let them race without the other and compare the lap times.

I was pretty impressed with the C4 drivers 36" nose!!! Did he win by a nose?

Did Niall get his job over at TWO magazine due to the loss of this race?

Good vid. Dunno if seperate runs would have changed the outcome much tho; it didn't look like the R1 pilot needed to change his cornering lines much because of the car - the Porsche just flat out smoked him in the corners.

No way a bike can compete with a sports car in the corners or under braking - just not enough traction, and cars have the added benefit of downforce.

Pretty cool, I can't believe the bike had so much trouble keeping up with a 996 N/A-- only 300 hp. I would have thought the bike would have destroyed the car out of every turn and on the straights. When I drive my SS in the canyons (370 rwhp)--Porshsce 996 N/A only about 255 rwhp-- with my buddy on his 636, I can easily outbreak him at the entrances but he is gone on every exit and straightaway. I remember that Top Gear race between an R1 and a Murcie, the Lambo beat it by a carlength.
