Mark Webber, Casey Stoner and Jamie Whincup will go head-to-head in a speed comparison at next month’s Top Gear Festival that is coming to Sydney Motorsport Park.

The F1, MotoGP and V8 Supercars heroes will hit the Eastern Creek track, with Webber driving a Red Bull Racing Formula 1 car, Stoner on a Honda CBR 1000 roadbike and Whincup in his Red Bull Commodore VF.

Between the trio, Webber, Stoner and Whincup nine F1 race wins, two MotoGP world championships, four V8 Supercars Championship and four Bathurst 1000 titles.

Top Gear Festival managing director Murray Hodges told the Herald Sun the speed comparison will be a highlight.

“We’re calling it the Australian speed showdown.” Hodges top the Herald Sun.

“To have those three guys all in their prime, the biggest names in Australian racing all here, it’s a promoter’s dream.

“There’s a lot on the line for these guys. None of them like to lose.”

The Top Gear Festival will be held around Sydney Motorsport Park’s north circuit on March 9-10.
