That outcome is no surprise at all (and yeah, it's a Type-R). Notice that the MR2 in that race is a J-Spec which in it's last few years made considerably more HP than the one sold in the US. See the little "245 ps" above the MR-2 in the opening frame. I know that is not exactly the HP, but the conversion is something like ps *.98 = HP. So it's around 240 as opposed to the 195-196 for the Type-R. Add to that the MR2's massive launch advantage and it's obvious who's gonna win this one.
