Double-feature movie night running order quandary - Fast 5 and Drive

Please don't critique the movie choices - they're locked! I need help with the best order of the two for an evening with driving-themed drinks and snacks, and with some inevitable chatting and food/drink serving during the films (sorry if you're a purist). It's a social night.
My instinct is to start with Drive then have a different kind of fun with Fast&Furious. Is that a mistake? I enjoyed both these films for a variety of reasons and I want them to complement one another as interesting and distinct approaches to 'hardware fetish' / 'man and machine' tropes, with great action.
Info: Fast Furious 5 is on DVD, Drive is Bluray; large HD screen with great sound.
Guests: mixed gender, movie lovers, cineastes, plus a few suspicious of cars/action who have been lured by the promise of Gosling/Walker prettiness or Diesel/Johnson beefcake (or in two cases, solely Carey Mulligan) plus beer, wine and food.
The interval will feature a ten-minute medley edit of classic movie car-chases. This is an ironic petrol-head night, no actual car obsessives will be in attendance as far as I know.
