A Google video clip is over due … and this one is a trifecta as it includes aviation, automotive and diesel topics in one 4 minute clip! Alan McNish, a celebrated Le Mans driver in his spectacular Audi R10 Le Mans TDI diesel takes on a Harrier Jump Jet in the United Kingdom — sounds like fun. Neither vehicle is really in its element since Le Mans racing is speed and skill over time instead of a runway drag strip, and the Harrier is hardly designed to remain glued to the track! Nevertheless,events like this are a great way to publicize the advancements in diesel engine technology this past decade. Hold on to your hats … the race is about to begin!
