Supercars, Superbike, F1, Private Jet and Fighter Jet: Which is Fastest?

By -

Ultimate drag race is exactly what you think it is, and it’s exactly as epic as it sounds.

It almost sounds like the setup for some corny joke. Some supercars, a superbike, an F1 car, and a pair of jets roll out on an airstrip…insert punch line here. However, as you can clearly see from this amazing video, this insane drag race actually happened. It all went down recently at Teknofest, a festival in Istanbul, Turkey that highlights technology, space, and aviation. Quite honestly, the results are rather surprising, and incredibly fun to watch.

Teknofest featured a host of interesting demonstrations. Everything from drone racing to air shows, exhibitions, and parachuting teams was on display. That said, what we like to call the most epic drag race of all time is what really stole the show. It all went down on three parallel runways at Istanbul’s brand new international airport, Istanbul Yeni Havalimani. Which just so happens to now hold the crown as the world’s largest airport.

The competition was as diverse as you could possibly get, that’s for sure. Made up of a Challenger 605 private jet, an F-16 fighter jet, a Formula 1 car, a Tesla P100D, a 2019 Aston Martin Vantage, a Lotus Evora GT, and a Kawasaki H2R bike. To make things interesting, most of the supercars and racing cars were driven by pro drivers. But in the end, the machine with the least amount of power is the one that took home the gold.

Yes, it was Turkish Supersport World Champion Kenan Sofuoglu and his two-wheeled superbike that claimed the crown in this amazing race. Though, in all fairness, Blancpain GT Series’ Jake Dennis gave him a good run in the Red Bull F1 car. Alas, it’s hard to beat anything that has 310 horsepower and weighs only 476 pounds. But it sure is fun to watch them try!
