They tried launching the car on the bananas, where there was the most impact on traction, as well as multiple, so many, skids through the small field of peels to see if there was any crippling impact on the car’s performance.


Spoiler alert, the banana peels were no match for the all-wheel drive, 3,600 pound 444 horsepower performance car. While there was a little bit of a slip, it seems like you would need a lot more banana peels to foil your enemy’s dreams of victory and glory. It may also help if they’re in a powerful, rear-wheel drive car that’s much more likely to slip up.

I get the feeling this test is incomplete, so hopefully they keep trying. It would be very handy to know just how much banana I need to eat to win a race in the future.
