TOV Video: Hot laps with Uehara-san in an S2000 CR at Mid-Ohio

This clip is a few years old and I wasn't sure when we would use it, but with things being a little bit quiet around here, I figure I'd dust off this footage that I shot in the summer of 2007 at the national press introduction for the 2008 S2000 CR and 2008 Mugen Civic Si.

In this clip, Shigeru Uehara, the Principal Engineer of the S2000 and NSX (in other words, a straight up DEITY around these parts) kindly took me around Mid-Ohio for a few hotlaps in an S2000 CR. Unfortunately I didn't have any way to physically mount the camera, so I did my best to hand hold it while riding shotgun around Mid-Ohio's 2.4miles and 15 turns. Also, in an attempt to avoid wind buffeting, I mounted a wireless mic in the floor beneath the passenger seat. Unfortunately, it seems that the mic picked up some sort of inductive interference, so the audio is somewhat low in fidelity. Hopefully you'll enjoy this clip despite these flaws. It may not be obvious in this video, but Mr. Uehara's driving skills are superb. He was very smooth, calculated, and precise.

TV UPDATE: Quick! If you're near a television with access to Discovery HD Theater (ch. 281 on DirecTV), turn it on RIGHT NOW and watch Twist the Throttle, a special on Honda's motorcycle racing history. I just checked the guide and it's airing again at 10PM Pacific time.
