Can be a motorbike faster than an air fighter? Karel Abraham answered this question at Brno International Airport last Sunday. And he showed to the crowd of spectators that it can be. In the battle against legendary Czech army jet L-29 Dolphin and Porsche 911 GT3 Cup driven by Champion of the Czech Republic Tomas Micanek Karel Abraham took the victory.
Race was held on the main runway of Brno International Airport. Both racers on ground started when the fighter was running over them in the speed approximately 200 km/h. The winner was set in last meters before the checkered flag between Karel and Tomas in the speed near to 300 km/h. “I need more time to accelerate to this speed,” explained Pavel Vesely, retired Czech Army pilot who was piloting the Dolphin.
Karel Abraham was excited by new 1199 Panigale borrowed from Ducati Slovakia. “It´s an exciting bike. I really would like to ride it at circuit - not only in straight. It didn´t seem to me to ride about 300 km/h. The runway is very wide, so you don´t feel the speed as at the race track.”
Tomas Micanek in Porsche passed the checkered flag just behind Karel. “It´s a shame that I couldn´t drive fastest RSR version, because our mechanics were still working on it and preparing it for next race. I think that in this case we could see Porsche passing the finish line at the first place,” said Tomas. “Yes, and If I rode MotoGP Desmosedici, guess who´s the winner,” laughing Karel.
