Motoring TV show Fifth Gear recently filmed a test between an $22,900 Ducati 1098 and $310,000 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera at the Wiltshire Circuit of Castle Coombe.
The 1098 ridden by British Superbikes Airwaves Ducati star Leon Haslam, was more than a match for the Lamborghini Supercar driven by Tiff Needell as both bike and car were put head to head for three challenges; slalom, braking and a one-lap race.
