Long before it was Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the circuit was sponsored by Nissan and had the 200-horsepower 1984 300ZX Turbo as its official pace car. In a video from the period, the most 80s vehicular battle you can imagine pits it (0-60 in 7 seconds!) against a Honda VF700S Sabre and famed rider “Fast Freddie” Spencer’s Honda 500GP race bike. To even the odds, the Z and the Sabre are given a head start and take off before Spencer even puts on his helmet. The result is, well, close. See the video below.
