Doug Meis….. one of the few racers (if not THE only) in the United States that races his red ’67 Honda S800 around a track and still lives to tell the tale. Can you say “We’re not worthy…”? Bet you thought real racing was only for Datsun’s or MG’s, think again Roots fans! The original 791cc straight-4 revs happily to a glorifying 10,000 rpms around the track and the sound is incredible to hear in person. Check out the video below for more.
