Spyker F1 vs F16 Jet-fighter - April 24, 2007, 01:30 PM

This weekend saw Spyker’s F8-VII Formula One racecar pitted against an F16 jet-fighter from the Royal Netherlands Air Force in a drag race. The event, named ‘Full Throttle’, saw Dutch driver Christijan Albers race his F1 car side by side against Captain Ralph Aarts in the high-tech aircraft barreling down an airforce base runway.


Christijan looked to have the advantage over the first 300m as he accelerated away from the line, but over the final 700m the F16 just pulled ahead to win the tight race by only two car lengths. Reaching a speed of 450km/h by the end of the straight, the F16 completed the course in just 15.5 seconds.


“It was a tight race, for the first 300m all I could see was the plane in my mirrors, but then he just accelerated past me and off into the distance. It was incredible,” Christijan said.


On the ground the machines are evenly-matched. The F8-VII racecar has more than 700bhp and can reach 350km/h in a straight line, the same speed the F16 will reach before taking off. In the air, however, the plane can go to more than twice the speed of sound, a massive 2,020km/h. With 25,000lbs of thrust, or the equivalent of 10,000bhp, the combat plane is also leagues ahead of the Formula 1 car. Then there’s difference between g-forces. The F1 racer will pull more than 5g through a corner, but a pilot in the F16 jet-fighter can experience up to 9g.

The f16 was going to win anyway. Going against a spyker f1 is just sad. Now if he had gone against the mclaren or scuderia ferrari, he would have been down for at least 500 m, haha. Christian albers sucks too, haha, thats a sad team. I dont' think they have even finished a race this year....
