Dancing with the Stars: vs F1

The attendees of the Top Gear Festival treated to some time action this year the Royal Purple Oil stars out to the general public what the … racing is all about.

Nik (below) was leading the charge but too hard on Sunday causing a encounter with the wall. Nik serious injury though the can’t be said for his car.

The act for the time … fans was the Tilton Interiors Evo who took in one of the most entertaining parts of the – The Ultimate Speed Showdown .

a handful of drivers in the world can put against a Formula 1 car” on resume. As of last weekend, Walden and the Tilton Interiors … team are part of exclusive club, having head to head against the of the Erebus Motorsport Mercedes V8 Supercar and SLS AMG GT3 car, a Ducati a WRC rally car and the Red Bull RB7 Formula 1

One thing we need to make clear right from the this was a “demonstration” race. very relaxed rules and a start the focus was more on the cars’ race track and comparing them to a benchmark set by the F1 car than aggressive, all-out This said, it was clear the took it rather seriously Troy Bayliss publicly he “wasn’t going to do anyone any .

The starting order was determined by races held throughout the day so the cars were given a start with the faster doing the chasing. First off the was Neal Bates in a Toyota WRC rally car with Troy on the Ducati Superbike soon They were followed by the E63 V8 and the SLS AMG GT3.

Last to leave the start were the Tilton Evo and the RB7.

The start spread the field out considerably with the first approaching Turn 3 by the time the RB7 was let It took The F1 car one lap to catch up to Tilton and two laps to move past the of the four wheeled field. By the fourth lap it was creeping up on the Ducati R mounted Troy Bayliss.

True to his Troy didn’t do Ricciardo any and was able to hold off the hard RB7, taking the line much to the delight of all two-wheel

The awesome speed, acceleration and of the RB7 was evident even to those The collective sigh heard the grand stand as it screamed was a testament of the car’s presence and appeal.

For Tilton, moving up the field was a bit tougher. While is no stranger to door-to-door racing, the car was for a solo, time … and was definitely out of its comfort zone in race. Undeterred by this Garth managed to catch up and the WRC car, the E63 V8 Supercar and the GT3 AMG, that even hampered by its aero package, Tilton had the and the top speed to overtake both of on the main straight.

It was certainly an eye opener for those who only ever heard time … racing but seen it in action.

As we’ve earlier, the race was a “demonstration” so difficult to say how it would have up if all the cars started from the at the same time. The actual lap paint a more accurate of how the vehicles compared. The RB7, not was the fastest car on the track with a lap of 1.26.27 . followed by the Tilton Evo at . Erebus SLS GT3 and V8 Supercar at 1.32.131 and respectively.

The Ducati Panigale R in 1.33.971 and the Toyota WRC car came in at

On Sunday morning, Danial went out and set a new SMP lap record on the same layout that is used for This, being a clear, run aimed at getting the fastest lap provided us with a good time to compare against the WTAC champion.

Development aside, the fact that street rated tyres, Evo is only 13 seconds behind is, without a doubt, the pinnacle of racing technology is pretty impressive. To put it in perspective, the gap between the Evo and the RB7 is two seconds less than the gap Tilton and the fastest Clubsprint car at the WTAC – the Process West WRX Take a moment to think that.

A well deserved pat on the for the Tilton team and kudos to the Purple Oil Stars for representing the … community at the Top Gear A big thanks also go to the event Renato Loberto  for helping us it all together. Next stop – World Time Attack
