Three international superstars of the track will line up against each other at the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix when Australia’s own 2 wheel hero Mick Doohan and F1 star David Coulthard along with V8 Stars Jamie Whincup, Craig Lowndes and Steven Richards take to the starting grid for a star-studded Ultimate Speed Comparison. A different V8 driver each will take to the wheel of a Red Bull V8 Supercar, Doohan a Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG road car and Coulthard a Red Bull Racing Formula 1 car on the spectacular Albert Park circuit.
In an outright test of speed, skill and bravery, the Ultimate Speed Comparison will see the Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG and Red Bull V8 Supercar given a calculated handicap start against the World Championship winning Red Bull F1 car for one lap of the Albert Park track.
