Porsche Carrera versus Boeing 747
An interesting race between two different type of transport will take place on September 5 as reported at AsiaOne Motoring and other local media. I want to watch the race in person but I will be out of town on that day. It was a difficult decision to turn down the invitation from nuffnang last week. In my opinion, Boeing 747 is at an disadvantage since its best performance is in the air. My bet is on the Porsche Carrera GT3 beating the big jumbo.
Update September 9: Race result - The Porsche 911 GT3 Carrera Cup race car covered the 1.7km distance in 19.8 seconds, beating the Boeing 747 by 0.4 seconds. Reports - The Straits Times, The New Paper.
