Event? A drag race. The contestants? A 2014 New Chevrolet Corvette Stingray versus an AH1 Cobra military helicopter. The winner? Astonishingly the Corvette Stingray was able to pull out the win. Now hold on, did we just wrap up this article just like that? Why didn’t I go into the details of the race and make it seem more intense? After all, it’s not everyday we see a car drag race a helicopter up in the air. You’d think an event like that would deserve more quality content out of a writer like me. Well you’re right but amazingly enough, the drag race wasn’t the highlight of this event.
First, we’d like to thank Korea’s Top Gear for this awesome idea of pitting a modern helicopter against America’s beloved muscle car, the 2014 Corvette For Sale. The Korean version depicts exactly what the British original is about, which is putting the spotlight on fantastic cars and placing them in impeccable situations while some intensely charismatic host puts us on the edge of our seats. This event definitely passes those standards. Did the event go as planned. In a way yes as the Stingray did put on quite a show. But it’s what happened after the drag race that caught everybody off guard. It was so bizarre that I do not know the words to describe what exactly happened. In plain and simple English, somehow the helicopter crashed into dirt while appearing to do some sort of aerial exhibition trick. Probably in hopes of retaining some pride after being thoroughly beaten by a land vehicle. The reason I can joke like that is because miraculously no one was injured. Even the pilot got out of there in one piece. Watch the video below to witness the strange incident.
