    And be 100% accurate. Mistakes mean much time lost, mostly due to a narrow powerband on the NA engine.
    same with R2 and R3 NA, now all youngsters are going through a different learning process. They dont even have to worry about turbolagging.....

    And that's ok because naturally aspirated engines in normal cars are pretty much dead (except some low cost ones or special applications which are in no way suitable for racing such as Atkinson-cycle engines).

    I was searching for some onboards and videos regarding some old-new sections of this year's Barum Rally and I have found this old but high quality video which I thought it disappeared many years a go from the internet. Somebody obviously uploaded a copy on youtube. I'm posting it because what is at the beginning was IMHO the most spectacular S2000 drive I have ever witnessed. I don't know why but the final car never was so spectacular like this raw prorotype!

    PS Yes, the most spectacular place of this video (0:31) is back in the rally, just reversed. It's only a question if something could be seen there over the bushes.

    PSS Yes, it's been 11 years already...
