Weekly Details - Feb 11th
Honda used their mortorcycle engine technology to make efficient, small car engines, in the 1960s. While the S800 had well less than a 1 liter engine, it was Honda's first car to go over 100 MPH, and it did that at about 35 MPG. At 10,000 revvs, it gave the car its buzzy sound. The next S-car from Honda was the S2000.
You earn the S800 race car by Golding the IB Licence, which you all should have by now. We will race it at Madrid, in both directions of the Mini street course. Tire wear is turned up, but the car is too light to get much with SMs. Watch out for that curb at the bottom of the hill. It will launch the car stunt-style.
