    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:

    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!!!
    Somehow, I feel the Japanese long for Ayrton pretty much in the same way the own Brazilians do. It´s very nice to see that a driver can have such an effect on a whole other culture!
    Props to Honda for doing this!

    On a very geeky point, the layout of the chicane was different then, so they must have made some kind of change to compensate for that…
