A few days ago, a scientific and technical festival was held in Istanbul. As part of the event, an incredible race took place on the runway of the international airport. The initiators of the mind—blowing "zaruba" were the famous "providers of adrenaline" - the Red Bull company. And you will never guess who won in this epic race!

Five drivers and two pilots met at a distance of 400 meters. The race was attended by: Kawasaki H2R sports motorcycle, three supercars (Tesla P100DL, Lotus Evora GT 430, Aston Martin New Vantage), fighter, F1 car and private jet.
Thus, the organizers of the event decided to simultaneously end the festival and announce the opening of the international airport in October.
It should be noted that the finish turned out to be "nose-to-nose". Only the ground distance was taken into account. That is, the advantage was with the car that has the highest acceleration speed.
The driver of the Kawasaki H2R finished first. The video of the race shows how fast this motorcycle turned out to be. Kenan Sofuoglu from Turkey drove the car.
Following him, the F1 car crossed the finish line, driven by a professional English pilot Jake Dennis.
The third position was taken by an F-16 fighter from the Turkish Air Force piloted by Erfan Gunar.
Tesla models S P100DL
The fourth place belongs to the Tesla P100DL electric car. The car was presented in June 2018. According to Western media, the model is one of the most promising this year.

The fifth and sixth places were taken by the drivers of Aston Martin New Vantage and Lotus Evora GT 430.

It is noteworthy that the race was held in two stages. During the second race, rider Kenan Sofuoglu took a seat at the helm of a private Challenger 605 aircraft, but this did not affect the overall result.
The only intrigue was whether the car would be able to overtake a sports motorcycle. The difference was a fraction of a second, the winner was revealed thanks to a photo finish.
The race has gained considerable popularity on the Internet. Commentators are extremely pleased with what they have seen and are already making plans for what types of transport could compete in one race.
