    Default Great Race, not 4x4 related

    Not 4x4 but a nice watch, apologies if it was posted before. Look what the Tesla do to the F1 in the first part.

    Turkey recently celebrated their Teknofest Istanbul Aerospace and Technology Festival.

    The drag race event was part of the Teknofest Istanbul. Organised by the Turkey Technology Team Foundation (T3F), along with the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipalities. The event aims to showcase the country's rapid advancement in technology.

    The drag race, held at the newly opened airport in the city of Istanbul, Turkey witnessed the participation of very different and unlikely participants. This includes F1 car from Redbull Racing Formula One Team, Kawasaki Ninja H2R, an F-16 from the Turkish Air Force and the Challenger 605 Private Jet. Also included a few road-legal cars in attendance, in the form of an Aston Martin Vantage, Lotus Evora GT430 and a Tesla Model S P100DL.

    The F1 car was driven by Redbull Racing's test driver Jake Dennis, while the Kawasaki Ninja H2R was ridden by former professional motorcycle racer Kenan Sofuoglu.

    The Kawasaki Ninja H2R took 9.43 seconds to cross the line, just 0.04 seconds ahead of the F1 car. The two were followed by the F-16 fighter jet coming in at third place
