This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Formula 1 race car compete against a V8 Supercar race car and a street car, but to make things more fair this time around, each vehicle was given a handicap.

Casey Stoner got behind the wheel of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula 1 car and waited patiently as David Coulthard took off first in the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG, followed by Mick Doohan in the Holden V8 Supercar. The trio put on a show at the Melbourne Formula 1 race this past weekend at the Australian Grand Prix.

The handicap given to each car was cleverly planned to create plenty of suspense for the spectators present at the event.

    Drivers are Incorrectly mixed up in the story. Mick Doohan drove the SL, Casey drove the V8 super car and David Coultard drove the RB F1. I was there for this last Friday and mick was pushing the SL63 hard. Handicaps were basically 20 seconds plus 20 seconds and all 3 came over the line within a second. Small tweaks on handicaps to get close result. Great to watch, made me realize how quick the V8 supercar was by being approx 20 seconds quicker over the standing lap than a twin turbo 5.5MB
