2011 SCCA Spec Miata Runoffs Road America - full video Danny Steyn

2011 SCCA Runoffs Road America - Spec Miata race. In car camera from Danny Steyn #39. Have a REALLY WILD SLIDE through the kink on lap 1 (2:52) in the slick conditions. Takes another 6 laps before I can flat foot it through the kink. After Tech and protests, I end up finishing in 5th place. Thanks to Mike Rossini at Rossini Racing Products for his wonderful spec miata engines, Traqmate for their excellent data package, and OPM Autosports for the best in trackside support.

2016 VIR Majors SM Race 2 - How to go from 14th to 6th to 28th to 9th
Not my finest day at VIR! Several years ago I overcame a 16th place qualifying and drove to the win, so I was hoping I could overcome my 14th place start. Well I went from 14th to 6th by Turn 5 and then promptly drove myself off at Oak Tree, falling back to 28th. Then together with Michael Ross we put on a demonstration of team driving and moved up into the top 10, and I finished 9th when Michael went wide at the top of Hog Pen. All in all a fun ride!





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
