Fantastic pictures, as usual.

But what's wrong with an analogue tacho? Never liked the digital ones myself :)

Exactly. It's the digital ones that are are actually cheap-ass. And crap to read too. Well done HRC.

I prefer analogue tachos too, but love the Playstation buttons next to it!

Glad to know that people still prefer analog tachos. Me too like them.

Great shot of the D16's rear wheel getting the hurry up. The analogue tacho is an absolute peach and in my opinion has huge advantage over a digital readout in terms of human eye,hand co-ordination.
Uuuh ? let's see am I shifting at 15755 RPM or 15642 RPM ?. With the analogue you know that you are about on target...15400-15800 is the zone. So quick and easy to know where you're at...at a glance. PS : the numbers mentioned are merely an example.

I don't remember reading about it so I will have to search for it.

Great pictures as always - and analog tachs for life, nothing beats a sweeping needle

Does anyone know if it is just Casey with the analog tach? Did Dovi and Dani run it as well? HRC and Honda as a whole love the digi tach (see the S2000 and most of their model lineup).

God I miss racing.
