Naturally Aspirated Honda S2000 Lap Record at Streets of Willow (Video)
Matt Rojana drives his S2000 with the utmost finesse on his way to serious bragging rights.
There’s nothing worse than watching a video of a rookie enthusiast bragging about his “badass” racecraft. You know, the kind of guy whose hands look busier at the wheel than a juggling artist’s at the circus.
That’s the first thing we noticed about this great onboard video by Matt Rojana Racing. While the Streets of Willow is too rough of a circuit for things to look buttery smooth, his steering inputs look precise, calm, and collected. The way he approaches and exits corners say a lot about his methodical approach to stringing sectors together.
Roajana’s S2000 is still naturally aspirated but far from stock. According to the video description, the Honda sports suspension upgrades such as; race spec coilovers, 18-piece spherical bushing kit, and driveshaft spacers all by Ballade Sports. In addition, you’ll find BuddyClub front and rear RCAs, and stock CR sway bars.
In the engine department it features Ballade Sports’ header, induction arm, velocity stack air filter, timing gear,and oil pan bolt-in baffle. Additionally, it has a ZDX throttle body, Koyorad hyper core radiator, Berk header-back exhaust Hondata Flashpro, and a Kaaz Super Q 1.5 way LSD.
When it comes to gripping and braking, Rojana opted for stock rotors with Spoon monoblock calipers, Project MU Club Racer pads, and Ballade Sports steel braided stainless lines. Lastly, Bridgestone RE71-R 255/40/17 wrap around a set of stunning Volk Racing wheels.
At the end of the day, this package along with some find driving on Rojana’s behalf scored a time of 1:22.432, which is good for a track record.
But! This video is from exactly one year ago, so maybe you can let us know if the record still stands.
