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
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.

Corvette Crashes During An AutoCross Event
This is the first time we've ever witnessed an accident at a speed ventures
autocross. It was a pretty fast track and it was his first time up since
his last break so the tires were pretty cold & so was the track.
Unfortunately the driver never touched his brakes after he lost control.
The driver was shaken up quite a bit, but he walked away.

FujiRacing IRTB Miata vs S2000 ITB Autocross
Gainesville FL Feb.'07. Our IRTB Miata is on wornout(Last Time Use)autox
tires and the S2000 was on performance street tires. The last turn shows
the IRTB (130 WHP)Miata hitting 51 MPH in such a short distance compared to
the S2K's 43 MPH. In fairness the Miata is proven in SCCA Natl. competition
as one of the fastest autox Miata's in the country.

Duel at DeAnza 2006: 1985 Corolla GT-S on the autocross track for the first
time. Stock suspension, and Toyo RA1's on the front.
I had 1/8th a tank of gas left, and the fuel tank has no baffling, so
that's fuel starvation for you.
