To give a slight advantage to the diesel, they decide to put 3 people in the petrol Scorpio and 2 people in the diesel Scorpio. As a result, the diesel launches ahead of the petrol but the latter is able to almost catch up even still. However, the race strip comes to an end just before that. Nevertheless, the power advantage of the petrol version is evident in high-speed scenarios while the low-end grunt of the diesel makes things interesting. Finally, we would like to advise our readers to not try such races due to safety hazards.
