Freddie Spencer track challenge

A superb video from 1985 that pits Freddie Spencer and his Honda GP bike against a street bike ridden by Sam McDonald, a former USA 250cc champion and a humble Nissan 300Z around Laguna Seca. Who’s going to win?

To make things more interesting the street bike and street car have a 30 second-plus headstart from Spencer, and the track's only two miles long. Can he do it?
