F1 Car Races Against a 1,500mph Fighter Plane, 20 Million Private Jet and World's Fastest Superbike

A FORMULA 1 car, a superbike, three supercars, a private jet and a fighter jet have gone head to head in possibly the world's most expensive drag race.

The five engineering masterpieces raced as part of theTeknofest aviation, space and technology festival in Istanbul yesterday.

As the starting pistol rings out it is the F1 car that takes the lead, seemingly given the edge on theKawasaki Ninja H2R by greater traction.

The Tesla supercar also makes a promising start, helped by an electric motor, which typically respond faster than petrol powered engines.

But within moments it's become a two-horse race between the Red Bull RB14 and the superbike.

A side mounted camera captures the Kawasaki's nose rise and its front wheel leave the tarmac for a moment as it's lighter weight gives it the advantage.

Footage over the bike's back wheel shows the F1 car losing ground.

It was a closely fought thing, with the superbike, ridden by World Champion Kenan Sofuoglu, just nosing out the Formula 1 car, driven by Jake Dennis - a British racer who currently competed in theBlancpain GT Series.

TheF-16 Solo Turk fighter jet also recovers from a slower start, rocketing to a third place position.

All up, the vehicles used in the race cost roughly £32million.

Emma Kimilainen, a Finnish racer who has taken in multiple Swedish Touring Car Championships, drove the Tesla.

She said many would be surprised at what an electric motor could achieve.

And they were, as the Tesla came in ahead of the Aston Martin New Vantage and Lotus Evora GT 430.

After the race, Sofuoglu - who became a parliamentarian after leaving motor sport behind - said he had dreamed of racing a bike against an F16 and an F1 car.

Rally driver Yagiz Avci took the wheel of the Aston Martin New Vantage, while the Lotus Evora GT 430 was driven by Superstock racer Toprak Razgatlioglu.

How Is an Electric Motor Conversion Kit Patent Eligible?
What is patented is defined by the claims. In this case there is only one claim (below). One thing to remember about claims. Long complicated claims where there are a lot of specifics are usually narrow and thus easily circumvented. Short claims are generally broader. In this case, there is a very long claim with many specifics. I am not sure why the examiner found this patent sufficiently novel, but I would say as an engineer, it should be trivial to engineer around this patent.An internal combustion engine to electric motor conversion kit system for supporting vehicle components in operative proximity to an electric direct/alternating current motor and for powering such supported vehicle components from the electric direct/alternating current motor, the supporting and powering being done in a safe, ecological, convenient and economical manner, the system comprising, in combination: a vehicle having a plurality of wheels and an operator controlled region,the electric direct/alternating current motor being within the vehicle, the electric direct/alternating current motor having a forward end and a rearward end and a cylindrical side wall, the electric direct/alternating current motor having a central shaft, the central shaft having a rearward section within the electric direct/alternating current motor and a forward section extending forward of the electric direct/alternating current motor, the central shaft being rotatable about a horizontal axis;a support assembly for retaining the electric direct/alternating current motor in an operative position, the support assembly including a central motor support and side motor supports, the motor mounts, the motor mounts coupling the central and side motor supports to the vehicle, the support assembly also including two vertically extending lateral brackets coupling the side wall of the electric direct/alternating current motor to the central motor support; a primary bracket formed with a vertically oriented first section removably coupled to the forward end of the electric direct/alternating current motor, the primary bracket formed with a vertically oriented second section rearwardly of and above the first section, the primary bracket formed with a third section perpendicular to and joining the first and second sections, an aperture in the first section in a key-hole shape for the passage of wires and the central shaft; vehicle components including at least one alternator and at least one air conditioning compressor and at least one power steering pump, the vehicle components being rotatably coupled to the second section of the primary bracket;a motion imparting assembly for driving the vehicle components, the motion imparting assembly including at least one drive pulley secured to and rotatable with the central shaft, the motion imparting assembly also including at least one driven pulley on the at least one alternator, at least one driven pulley on the at least one air conditioning compressor, and at least one driven pulley on the at least one power steering pump, the motion imparting assembly also including at least one idler pulley and at least one tensioning pulley, the motion imparting assembly also including at least one belt movable in a vertical plane and operatively coupling the at least one drive pulley and the at least one driven pulleys and the at least one idler and tensioning pulleys; a supplemental bracket secured to the second section of the primary bracket at an elevation above the third section, cable lines mounted on the supplemental bracket to increase and decrease the speed of the electric direct/alternating current motor and the vehicle; a radiator and a cooling fan, the radiator and cooling fan being positioned forward of the electric direct/alternating current motor to facilitate cooling of the electric direct/alternating current motor and the vehicle components; and a battery pack and controller in the vehicle for powering and controlling the electric direct/alternating current motor.1. how did michael faraday inventor of the electric motor change mankind?Electric motors transform electrical energy into mechanical energy the same way a steam engine transformed heat energy into mechanical energy. The source of the electrical energy was heat, but the electrical generator could be many miles from the electric motor. This was impractical with a steam engine if the steam had to travel very far through pipes. It made it possible to use mechanical energy in places where a boiler would be impractical. Electric motors could also be very small unlike steam engines which had to be at least the size of a car before they were mechanically efficient. Electric motors could also do something impossible to do with a steam engine. If mechanical energy was sent back through an electric motor it is transformed into electricity. This is the basis of electrical generators. It would be absolutely impossible to turn the wheels of a steam engine and generate coal.2. How can i increase the eficency of a Dc electric motor?Interesting reasoning, but there is one possible problem, and that would depend on the length of the race. If the capacitor is discharged at the beginning, then the solar panel is going to expend its energy charging the cap, rather than powering the motor. Once you get to steady speed, the motor with the capacitor may go faster by a tiny bit. Fair rules would suggest that you wo not be allowed to charge the capacitor beforehand. If you have an oscilloscope at your disposal, then I would look at the waveform of the current draw of the motor, when powered by the solar panel. You could then experiment with different size caps to see the power curve at startup, and steady state. Or, just determine which is best, if any, by running the car down the designated course length while timing it.3. Anyone know where I could get an RC electric motor with the following torque and RPM capabilities??...?Try rcuniverse.com or hobbyking.com but you would better check your specs. 100 rpm is VERY SLOW, and unsuitable for directly driving an aircraft propellor 50Nm is VERY HIGH torque. Both of these specs suggest an integrated gearbox with the motor, but then you would have to add a second gearbox to step the speed up again... Perhaps the "100 rpm" is actually the kv figure. That means rpm per Volt applied. If so, it's still a VERY LOW kv figure. kv figures above 250, and up to 3000 or so, are common. It might help if you give more details of your aircraft model. Maybe it's quite large...
