It’s nothing new to imagine the ultimate sporting dream team. The formula is simple: take the best of the best from past and present and wrap them into one ultimate line-up.

But what about the ultimate sporting rivalry? Chronograph creator TAG Heuer has given the question some thought and decided it'd like to see two of its famed brand ambassadors, the late Steve McQueen and current F1 ace Lewis Hamilton, go head to head around the Le Mans track.

Thanks to the wonders of some very patchy editing, you can watch McQueen and Hamilton eye each other off before hitting the track for about five seconds of main-straight battle.

Of course, there's an ulterior motive behind the vid: the video’s true purpose is to drum up interest in a TAG Heuer promotion where you could win a Limited edition Monaco Gulf Chronograph, one of Hamiltion's F1 helmets, or a chance to participate in an F1 driving day.

You can enter the competition and stay tuned for the results at tagheuer.com
