Probably won't need a 'chute for this race.
Roadsters tend not to be built for flat-out straight line speed. Even in the Sixties, when roadsters were at their most popular, your average MG would still tend to struggle to keep up between the lights with a contemporary Buick that didn't know it was racing. But roadsters today are a bit quicker, especially if you're willing to put a bit of work into them, and most especially if you're talking about a Honda S2000. Here we see a Mazda MX-5, the most popular roadster of all time, going up against it.
The drivers racing the cars are none other than the guys over at Mighty Car Mods. They put together a great behind the scenes video leading up to and including the race with external and on-board footage.
