Audi R8 vs Dodge Caravan in Skidpad Challenge

Video / Comments

It's David vs Goliath all over again on a wet skidpad, only this time David is the bigger one.

What handles better: an Audi R8 Spyder, or a circa 2000-2007 Dodge Grand Caravan? You might think it's a bit of a no-brainer, but you'd have to think again. These are the two cars that faced off at Shannonville Motorsports Park in Ontario, Canada. The challenge involved racing around a wet skid-pad, and the objective was simple enough: Both cars started at opposite ends and drove around in circles until one caught up with the other. In other words, a battle for traction - something which the Audi has in spades.

Sounds simple enough for one of the sweetest-handling roadsters ever to grace tarmac, and an impending defeat for the wobbly family-hauler. The result, however, may surprise you.
