Here’s a cool video Honda put on their YouTube channel yesterday. They rigged up speakers and lights around Suzuka to recreate Ayrton Senna lapping the circuit in a McLaren-Honda in 1989:
There’s also a ‘behind the scenes’ video, but it’s in Japanese:
Wow. Nice project. Kind of eerie though!
I agree @meander, very eerie! It must have been surreal being at the track and hearing those characteristic throttle blips once more…
That is beyond cool!!!

They put up a special site for it to in both Jpn and Eng
Awesome. Just… awesome.
Love this series of videos…
