Pro Drifter vs Driver-less 550HP Race Car (watch)

posted by Chip Nelson -

Over the past few years, there has been a lot of discussion about driverless cars. Recently, some engineers took the idea of a driverless car to a whole new level by designing an open-wheel driverless race car with 550 horsepower.

Pro driver Ryan Tuerk actually raced this car, called the DevBot, on a course in Italy in a battle of man vs. machine -- and won.

It was a nice victory for humans, but the developers of the self-driving car say it won't last. They expect the DevBot to start beating the times of human drivers later this year. (Adventure Sports Network)
