While single turn primaries look good on paper:
V2 = Sqrt(L2 / L1)

It has been debunked in practice. The sames formula and thinking goes for
topload capacitance (paper vs practice). You need a lot of C2 for good
The relation is pure mathematics, and so can't be debunked. Of course there are distributed effects, that change the ideal prediction a bit, but the fundamental issue is that voltage is not so important in the production of sparks. Once the breakdown limit is reached the voltage does not rise much, and what is needed is a lot of current to keep the spark growing, and it has to come from the distributed capacitance of the secondary system, or from a large C2 as you say.
