Some Very Important and Serious Racing

If you’re a fan of Carwow’s content on YouTube, then you know the company makes a point of being rather goofy. Mat Watson, the man behind the wheel for most of the channel’s videos, makes a point to be a little silly. In the video below, he and Yianni Charalambous the owner of Yiannimize take the McLaren 720S Spider and the Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster and pit them against each other in a drag race, a rolling race, and a braking test. 

Despite the fact that the weather is less than cooperative, the two cars race with their roofs either off or in the lowered position. With a little bit of rain spitting, the two begin racing. We’re not going to spoil the fun of the races by discussing the results here, but we can say it’s an entertaining time. 

Both cars appear to be pretty easily matched, honestly. The racing isn’t super scientific but it’s a lot of fun to see these two cars hitting high speeds on a track. We’d be even more interested if they were on a racing circuit. While straight-line speed and stopping distances are interesting, they’re only part of the equation. We’ll keep fingers crossed there will be more videos coming in the future.
