Fernando Alonso races a 1930s Bugatti against a horse this week.

The two-time Formula One world champion was pitted against Argentine polo star Facundo Pieres for a promotional event for McLaren sponsor Chandon in the South American country.

The event took place on a 140 metre long stretch of road at a classic car club just outside of Buenos Aires.

While the horse took an early lead, Alonso in the Bugatti was able to claw back and cross the line just ahead of Pieres.
