And today, they decided to hold a fun little contest, between an auto rickshaw and an Uber to see which could navigate through Delhi the fastest.

The Uber vs rickshaw race is on! Follow @BBCVikas and @mattdanzico across #Delhi to see which transport is faster.

The BBC live-tweeted the entire race and the rivalry was intense.

The upcoming tuk tuk/Uber race is already heating up here in #Delhi. We're en route to the start.

BBC Pop UP tuk tuk is good to go! #BBCpopup #bbcpopindia

The Uber had a rocky start, and the rickshaw decided to take full advantage.

.@mattdanzico seems to be struggling in his Uber to match my rickshaw. Go tuk tuk! bbcpopup @BBCIndia @BBCIndia

But just a few minutes later, the Uber began to pick up the pace, and sped past the rickshaw

Just started Uber/rickshaw race across #Delhi. My Uber is already driving 2x as fast as the rickshaws on the road!

But of course, rickshaws are sneaky motherfuckers. They know all the fastest routes...

My tuk tuk driver took a turn into a narrow lane, saying its a faster route! @mattdanzico - I think tuk tuk is winning this one!

And can navigate through traffic much better than cars.

So confident just moments ago in the Uber/rickshaw race. But now stuck in traffic and rickshaws weaving past my car!

Pedestrians walking past my Uber. @BBCVikas, I'll still beat you! Somehow... Delhi traffic just too much for a car 😭

People got super invested in the race towards the end.

@BBCpopup @BBCWorld @BBCVikas @mattdanzico I'm voting Rickshaw!

But the end result was a predictable one.

Congrats @BBCVikas. Your rickshaw won. My car service followed GPS and went to the wrong place. Asking locals 4 help

And BBC had to declare a winner.

So @BBCVikas defeats @mattdanzico's #Uber. Autorickshaw still king of #Delhi roads!

Gulshan is best.

Rickshaw wins! Gulshan, my rickshaw driver, is pleased to beat @mattdanzico and his Uber!@BBCIndia @BBCpopup

Yep.

@BBCpopup @mattdanzico we'll try our best to not disappoint you in the next round. @BBCVikas
