Just how do you promote the Audi R8 V10 plus? Pit it against a Ducati 1299 Panigale S, according to Audi. In the video, Richard “Milky” Quayle, a former bike racer shares his thoughts of the TT (Tourist Trophy) course on the Isle of Man. Later, both superbike and supercar are seen duking it out at the same location.

The video is entitled Tour de Force. Despite one being a four-wheel sports car and the other a two-wheel superbike – the former packing 610 hp and 560 Nm, the latter 205 hp and 144.6 Nm of torque – both are true racers at heart, that’s for sure.

Quayle explains that the TT course, with more than 260 turns, takes over three years to learn. Furthermore, the sunlight, which acts like strobe lights, makes it all that much harder. Rolling in at a later point is the the Audi R8, which makes a flashy entrance in its striking dynamic red paint.

Later on in the video, both racers are seen having a go at each other. Gaining a head start, the Ducati goes into full speed while the Audi R8 catches up with the two-wheel sports bike. Perhaps the best way to sum up the reason behind the existence of both would be how Quayle describes his own passion for racing.

“Here, it’s not about money, it’s about passion and speed and freedom. It’s just immense you know, you just cannot get it out of anything else in life,” Quayle says. All three elements are cleverly connected – the Audi TT‘s name originates from the course, while Ducati is owned by Audi through Lamborghini and the R8 V10 plus? That’s pretty much the star in the video.
