I’ve driven a modern superbike motorcycle engine powered MR2 on the track for several 2-hr stints and lemme tell ya...it was insane. Gloriously insane. I’m still slightly deaf. 200ish horsepower in a 24 Hrs of LeMons race doesn’t sound like much these days..but the low weight and driving experience of the sequential…

Whoops. I’m not good at following directions.
I love the X1/9 graphics on the side. So 80s.
