To celebrate their 100,000th subscriber on YouTube, Auto Express has released a special video that pits the Honda Mean Mower against the Civic BTCC race car.

In the clip, British Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden competes against Matt Neal while using the 109 bhp (81 kW) Mean Mower which can accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than four seconds and hit a top speed of roughly 130 mph (209 km/h).

While Neal obviously has an advantage, as the Civic BTCC is a purpose-built track car with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that develops more than 300 bhp (223 kW), would a 40 second head start be enough to give Shedden the win? Watch the clip and find out.
