Got some great coaching from Tow Fowler of OPM (they built my car), Mark Cash and Todd Buras. On Saturday, I did not think it was a fun track. Initially, it seems overly technical - very busy - you're always working the steering wheel except for front straight. But on Sunday, after doing some sessions, I started to like it. The back section has a nice flow to it when you get the line right. And the two high speed sweepers are fun. The track is really like a skid pad - you can practice a lot of oversteer car control and in most places there is a lot of run off room - no close walls like Road Atlanta. It's actually quite a fast track but when you first drive it, it seems very technical - you need the correct line (thanks for showing me Tom !!). Personal best time of 1:23.9. Front running National SM time are low to mid 22s so I think 23.9 is not too bad for very first weekend. At least i didn't hit the wall on front straight which i'm told is a common thing when drivers try to keep car on the track at 100 mph.

March 11, 2012 Road Atlanta Miata Crash - NASA HPDE 2 group
This 2003 Miata Shinsen Edition was a brand new build by OPM Autosports in Cumming, GA. They installed cage, seat, Schroth 6 point harness, SPA AFFF 6 nozzle fire suppression system, radiator, brake lines, tow hooks and much more. They also oversaw the painting of the interior and hard top. Their workmanship is beyond reproach. It really was the coolest looking track Miata I had ever seen -- which makes this story so sad (OPM also did ride height, corner weights and alignment for Spec Miata class and provided track side support for this NASA SE event). I was in HPDE 2 group (one step above beginners). I waited three months for the build to complete. I promised myself I would not wreck on the very first weekend I had the car back but ... I did. I hit the inside wall after T3 pretty hard. Personally, I think I went to full throttle too soon at T3. If I had just waited a few tenths longer until the right rear tire had cleared the curbing before mashing the throttle, I think I would have been ok. It's a painful lesson. Here are pics of car after repairs - better than new!! https://picasaweb.google.com/106213036764439306024/2003ShinsenSM
