I would catch up to him on the main long straight. I only did half throttle around the turn 5 area (the other long straight) because Laguna has a 92db limit and there's a sound booth there. Akrapovic Evo could get me black flagged. But aside from that, my friend in the S2000 is a much better driver than I am. He has a lot more track (and autox) experience than me.

It goes to show that driver experience is almost everything at the track. People can argue about the performance of various cars all day long, but the better driver will usually end up being faster.
