Watch - Can the Radical RXC Turbo 500 beat the McLaren P1?

The battle for the top spot on the evo Leaderboard, which takes the win?

The McLaren P1 currently sits at the top of the evo Leaderboard with a lap time of 1:11.2. It is, for all intents and purposes, the fastest car we've ever tested at Anglesey.

For those not yet in the know, the evo Leaderboard is all about timing the quickest road-legal cars and pitting them head to head at Anglesey race circuit in north Wales.

The P1's time, which was set on super-sticky Pirelli Trofeo R tyres, has for a long time seemed unbeatable. So quick is the twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 powered RXC Turbo 500, that Radical were quietly confident it could top the Leaderboard and accepted the challenge to take on the P1.

Is it quicker? You'll have to watch to find out.
