Normally the 552bhp Porsche 911 Turbo S is one of the fastest cars around a tight handling course. Today, though, it's up against some stiff competition in the form of a Formula 4 car. Can the Porsche hold off the racer? Steve Sutcliffe finds out.

At that price the formula 4 car looks a heck of a lot cheaper than the Formula Ford Ecoboost that was touted around to show off the ecoboost engine, and a fair bit cheaper than some more focused track stuff like Radicals and Westfields too, never mind the gorgeous BAC mono, sounds like real fun.

If the Turbo S did a 1.19 what would a 991 GT3 do?

it would be interesting to see the bac mono / caterham / atom and its ilk go against the formula x cars.

Steve's videos just get worse and even more pointless IMO. Now Chris Harris is a man who know's how to make a good video and he doesn't get out of breathe doing them.

I don't think Chris Harris could make a car go as fast as Steve. If your not puffing & panting you're not trying. And who cares how he pronounces that German car, I bet he could lap it faster than anyone posting here. Personally Id like a 2 seat track car & would pick the Radical SR1

Perhaps if Steve grew a Moustache, on a wet and windy day.

A completely pointless comparison. By the way Steve, you might like to learn to pronounce the name of the car correctly, not like some oik from Essex. It's Por-sha, not Porsh. Anyone noticed how he can barely see over the 911 steering wheel?

For someone who is a professional motoring journalist, to mispronounce someone's name is unacceptable. Video was good though.

23 June 2014

Do you say Sit row en, as well as Porsha

Twice the weight,three times more bhp,as opposed to better brakes,less weight to stop,flatter cornering etc, i could go on,of course the mighty Porsche stood no chance,maybe it shows how far road cars like this one have come........?
