You wouldn't get near an R1 in a stock S2000. He was playing with you....

I did a rolling test against a 911 turbo on a 600rr and destroyed it, not anywhere near close
Ah! I must have imagined it then.

Of course you wouldn't. Pretty sure his car isn't very stock though.

Had a close encounter with a GSX-R today which gave a good example of the speed differential between an s2000 and a 1000 sports bike. I was at full chat doing silly speed, when out of nowhere came this thing passing me like I was parked up. I didn't even see him coming, which I think he realised as he passed really closely even there wasn't anything else on the road. Nearly sh!t myself. Unbelievably quick.

Then a while later, after I had changed my underwear, I had a play with a BMW 330d x-drive. I was really surprised it wasn't any quicker than my stock S.

I got my arse kicked by an EVO when I was on my tuono racing, there are some pretty fast cars out there.Obviosly not as fast as your 600rr but fast never the less.

Depends on both drivers and the situation.

Straight line from rolling/standing start and you've got no chance.

I had a play with one about 5 years ago on some country roads. He had a full car and was trying to impress the passagers . I kept right with him and had to back off in the corners (he had a good few 100kgs of passagers remember).

He wasn't best pleased but still gave me the thumbs up as we parted our separate way.

These days it's a different story..... I now leave them behind in all situations
