39th Annual "Duel at De Anza" (5/18/2008)

Car: 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata Tires: Bridgestone RE01R (205/45/16) Class: SM2 (finished 4th of 9) Split Time: 26.255s Time: 52.222s Venue: De Anza College (Cupertino, CA) I missed a 3rd place in-class finish by about 0.6 seconds and 2nd by only 0.8 seconds, either of which would have given me a trophy... Oh well, at least the only consolation is that I didn't do too badly for this competition considering I was not running on R-compound tires. :) I love the way this event was run, using the old-school auto-x format (1st lap is practice and the last two are timed). Also, the course was nice and tight, so it was challenging. I'm surprised that as wild as I was on course, I didn't hit anything.

NA6C Miata: Night Touge Film Debut (Part 2)
Part 2 of 2. This is the debut night film of the free car (a stock 1990 NA6C Miata) I acquired about 9 months ago. After some repairs/tune ups were done, finding a camera car and getting an appropriate camera mount setup for the NA, it was ready to go film a good chase video. Also, it has been through some daytime runs and auto-x's to shake it down to see what's what and I'll get whatever footage I have it on sooner or later. I just have to find the footage first.

This car still had the BFG R1 tires it probably wore during its last road race several years ago. It also had the biggest front sway bar I've ever seen on a little car.

SuperMiata: Round 7 - Race 1 @ Auto Club Speedway (8/9/2014)
Qualified P3 (Caterham in front is not racing in class). Strategy and cooperation goes a long way towards winning here. It worked very well when William and I teamed up against Emilio for most of the race, which allowed me to lead the race until the last lap. This is when William loses brakes through T3 and balked both of us. Emilio then passed both of us on the exit of T4 for the win. I finished P2.

SuperMiata: Round 8 - Miatas @ MRLS (9/7/2014)
This is a special exhibition race during the 2014 Miatas at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca event. I've been to MRLS many times, but never for a W2W race. This was a treat for me and all the drivers in the SuperMiata Race Series. And for this race, Miller (my red MSM) was reborn as a SuperMiata for its first race, barely finished being rebuilt/repuposed for this event. Only one 25-minute race this time, with highest average finishing position of all races in which the drivers participated starting in the back. I started P9. The start was very good, but chose a bad area to pass and had to back off and fell to P11 before the Andretti hairpin. I claw through the field eventually, but by the end of Lap 2, the front pack left. The only race left was a tight battle between me, Emilio, and William for mid-pack positions.

Buttonwillow 13CW: 140whp Sub-2:00 Attempts (9/20/2014)
SuperMiata (Miller) with rough 140whp tune and 7500rpm rev limit, 225/45/15 Hoosier R6, 97*F ambient air temperature late in the day. After Lap 6 (best lap 2:00.634), I had two more attempts for a sub-2:00 lap. Lap 7 was the best shot, but had to lift at Grapevine for a BMW. Datalogs show that I was 0.4 seconds faster before that incident. Lap 8 was my next best attempt, but a yellow flag at Bus Stop killed that lap. Next time...

New personal best lap at Buttonwillow. Former best lap was set in January 2010 (1:59.337), which then was my first and only sub-2:00 lap ever. That lap here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TIh_wNLteM Same car as in 2010, just 300lbs lighter, 100whp less power (no turbo), and no big aero mods.

Speed Ventures Auto-X (6/14/2008)
This was a non-competitive auto-x hosted by Speed Ventures and it was very low-traffic, so got a lot of runs (like a billion). So, I just turned it into a music video. In fact, this makes it my first-ever driving music video, so sit back and enjoy. Venue: California Speedway (Fontana, CA) Car: 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata Tires: Bridgestone RE01R (205/45/16)
