One of my best drives.

WGI 7-6-2014 Spec Miata SCCA Majors Race 2
Started 3rd, got jumped at the start (ahem) and was doing great until I
made a mistake and locked my brakes, sending my drafting partner for a
trip. Then I was a sitting duck and all kinds of craziness ensued. Kept it
off the walls though, always a good thing!
Race car driver heel-toe & footwork - Spec Miata
Click here to see how the race went that weekend:
My footwork in the Spec Miata race car at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The
car is prepared by Ed Railton and Premier Auto Service.
This footage was taken at the end of a long test day, during which I
seriously burned off my tires. As a result it was hard to get a 1:51 lap
time, which is about 2-3 seconds slower than it should have been. I did
mid-1:48s when I got fresher rubber. In the video I'm feathering the
throttle more than usual.
You'll notice the shift from 2nd to 3rd is slower. The 3rd gear synchro is
weak in first generation Miatas, and if you shift too fast it hurts the
You'll also notice copious left-foot braking in turns 3 and 10. I start the
video during braking for turn 11.
I was surprised I could find a spot for the Contour down there, but it's
got a lot of mounting options and it was pretty simple to get a good angle.
Some quick settings changes on the lap top and it was good to go.
I like watching the dirt in the footwell shooting back and forth. With
nearly 1.5 G, it's like upending a bucket.
2013 SCCA Runoffs: Crazy Spec Miata Race with Wreck
Ride onboard with Josh Bilicki during the 50th anniversary SCCA Runoffs
held at Road America. After a poor qualifying session, Josh started 39th
out of 70+ Spec Miatas. After the first 1/2 lap, Josh moved up 10+
positions, until he ran out of room during a wreck and hit another SM
driver. Josh was forced to pit under a full course yellow to take care of
the damaged hood. After rejoining the track in 58th position, Josh charged
back up the field into his final finishing position, 34th.
