The MotorTrend team host drivers from five continents to compete in their very first Best Driver's Grand Prix, and it looks like loads of fun!

We already saw MotorTrend host The World's Greatest Drag Race 9 at the Vandenburg Air Force Base recently. But, what else can you do with a cast of 2019s unbelievable vehicles? Well, why not invite your buddies from around the world to race some of the best cars around a track.

So, who are the contestants and where are they racing? The latter is the famous WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, with its legendary corkscrew corner. The former compiles of three-time Formula Drift champ Chris Forsberg, champion driver Randy Pobst, 12 Hours of Sebring winner Marino Franchitti, MotorTrend affiliates, Axel Stein and Patryk Mikiciuk, and host, Jethro Bovington.

The cars for the race are; the Toyota GR Supra, the 715hp Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, the Jaguar Project 8, Shelby Mustang GT350, the Porsche 992 Carrera S, and the McLaren 600LT (because the Brits wouldn't allow them to race the Senna – unsurprisingly).

The premise is simple, the slowest qualifier takes pole and the fastest starts from the back. It's a three-lap race and winner takes all.

So, what do you think happens? Well, the results may surprise you. Press the play button below and check out the tyre-shredding action for yourself!
