Drag Race: Red Bull Pits MotoGP Bike Against F1 and Rally Cars
“Red Bull Took Mat Watson's Carwow Drag Race Idea and Turned it Up to 11…”
A MotoGP bike, a Formula One racer, two Rally cars and a 2,040hp SuperVan try drag racing. Media sourced from Red Bull on Youtube.
Red Bull has gone and usurped a quarter-mile drag strip so that they can run a speed test – and while that sentence itself boasts nothing out of the ordinary, the machines chosen for the honors are quite another matter.
Here’s a list of the rev-happy monsters chosen to blast the straightaway, in order of the above photo:

Big congrats to Dani Pedrosa and his RC16, having made his Red Bull Racing team proud by snatching up all three first-place spots in the event! Honorable mention goes to the Ford SuperVan 4.2, whose yank-ey electric torquedos beat all cars in the competition while simultaneously giving Jones a reason or two to change pants.
