When it comes to a race between a go-kart, a 1,300hp Porsche, and a 1,088 hp Audi S4, you can automatically factor one of these out of the equation, right?

Check out the races below as the go-kart manages to hold its own against competitors that appeared to be a sure win, showing us that nothing is really a sure thing.
