2013 OPM Test Day - Mistakes Compilation

2013 OPM Autosports World Famous Test Day The car: https://picasaweb.google.com/106213036764439306024/2003ShinsenSM# First time at this track. 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

Bad day in my BMW M3 at Roebling Road
It was the last session of the day and it ended badly. I've run MANY track events at Roebling Road Raceway over 10+ years and never had the experience I had this day. On the second hot lap I was entering turn 3 no differently than any other time and prior to the apex the back end stepped out. There was no warning at all, the car just snapped to the left and before I knew it the front of the car was off the track and I was flying over the grass toward the berm on the outside of the track. Looking at the telemetry from my TraqMate system I was going about 100 MPH when I lost control; I scrubbed off some speed before hitting the berm at 60 MPH and experienced 4 Gs coming to a stop. I heard later than another car had gone off track at the entrance to turn 3 and the belief is that they brought dirt or debris onto the track which I went through later. If you listen closing you'll hear the engine rev right at the point where the back end steps out, indicating the immediate loss of grip. I don't believe I could have avoided the off track excursion as I got no warning at all that the back end was going to break lose, and I was literally "going for a ride" once I was off into the grass. Now I just hope Buddy can repair the damage...
