Stock engine Miata vs V8 Mustang

In this in-car video I chase a V8 Mustang in my stock engine 130 hp '95 Miata on the 1.1-mi East Track at Firebird International Raceway near Phoenix, AZ during a ProAutoSports HPDE event. The Mustang was much faster on the short straights and I was a fair bit faster in the turns, but I lacked the hp to get by -- and the Mustang driver may not have been aware he was actually holding me up. My lap times were nearly three seconds slower while following the Mustang during the early track sessions that day than when I was running on an open track. But in the last track session of the day when the Mustang driver had more experience on this track, I had a far tougher time catching him than I did in the first couple track sessions in the morning -- he's really quite a decent driver when he knows the track, and his Mustang is well setup.

Mazda MX-5 on board on the track
Like me on Facebook: My Blog: Full HD video 1080p. Description: I filmed this Mazda MX-5 Miata NA at the Modena racetrack during the Japanese Cars Meeting 2013. In the video you can see the start up of the engine, then some on board action on the track: the driver raced a Citroen Saxo VTS and tried to battle an Honda S2000. In the video you can see also some drifting. Amazing car, fantastic experience, I didn't imagine that a 1.6-liter engine can give so much fun! Ho filmato questa Mazda MX-5 Miata NA Prima Serie all'Autodromo di Modena durante il Japanese Cars Meeting 2013. Nel video potete vedere l'accensione del motore, poi alcune scene riprese dall'interno: il pilota ha gareggiato con una Citroen Saxo VTS e ha cercato di dare battaglia a una Honda S2000. Nel video potete vedere anche qualche derapata. Auto fantastica, esperienza favolosa, non pensavo che un motore 1.6 potesse regalare così tanto divertimento!

A 250 hp Miata vs a 430 hp Corvette
ProAutoSports and Bob Bondurant team up to hold a track day at the Bondurant High Performance and Race Driving School near Phoenix. This video clip features a moderately modded 2004 MazdaSpeed Miata with about 250 flywheel hp (200 rwhp on a Dyno) following a 430 hp late model Corvette. The well driven Miata (with a passenger in the car) does pretty well considering the huge power advantage of the Corvette, but the Vette does eventually pull ahead slowly.
