The Answer is Always Miata - /TUNED
Ask any car guy, what would make a good first car? Miata. What would make a
good weekend car? Miata. What would make a good tuner car? Miata. What
would be a good race car? Miata. What could I drive that Chris Harris won't
like? Miata. It seems the answer is always Miata. This week, CJ Wilson
Racing and Continental Tire invite us to Austin, TX to test two of their
best Miatas on the track.

Z06 Corvette Vs a '95 Miata: A Physical Encounter
This is a reload of a previously posted video that upgrades video to
full HD quality and fixes a minor synchronization issue between the
front and rear Go Pro Hero video cameras mounted on my car for
The video features front and rear facing video displayed in a
picture-in-picture format as I run my track-prepped '95 Miata
at an HPDE track-day event at Wild Horse Pass MotorSports
Park located in the Phoenix metro-area. I have mostly fun
and exciting on-track encounters with another well driven Miata,
a couple of very quick well-driven Lotus Elise's, a very beautiful
new Aston Martin sedan, and an especially exciting encounter
with a very fast Z06 Corvette.
I believe it is instructive to review details of this track accident.
In the video when the accident happened I am turning into a
a right hand 75 mph corner in my Miata just as the Z06
Corvette was passing the white Miata about 50-100 yds behind
me (the fast and correct line through this corner is to use
quite an early apex and then let the car drift left and aim
directly for the apex of the next left hand turn). The Corvette
driver later told me he thought he could pass both the white
Miata and my black Miata and still make the right hand corner.
I estimate that 500+ HP Z06 Corvette reached at least 100 mph
as he passed the white Miata and then continued on the throttle
in an attempt to pass me. I saw the beginning of the pass on
the white Miata but then had already began to turn-in toward the
corner apex as the Corvette was passing the white Miata and
was therefore fully committed to the usual corner line believing
the Corvette would back off and follow me into the corner. And
because once I had committed to the corner and turned-in toward
the apex of the corner, I could no longer see the Corvette in my
mirrors and did not know and did not expect that he had not
pulled in behind me for that corner which would have been the
correct and safe thing to do. And additionally, the Corvette had
reached too high a speed trying to pass both Miata's and was
unable to slow enough for the corner and hit the right rear wheel
well area on my car just as I reached the apex of the right hand
This turned out to be a moderate level track accident with no
personal injuries, but it did result in major damage to both cars
because the differential speed was still at least 30 mph at the time
of contact (I was doing about 75 mph at the time of the accident
and the Corvette was likely up around 100 mph). After a few
hours of work on my car at the track I was able to limp home with
it safely, but that lovely Z06 Corvette was taken from the track on
a flatbed truck. Both cars are repairable but at rather significant
expense -- track accidents with any kind of significant contact
almost always result in major and costly damage. Bottom line
here is that this was an avoidable accident that happened due
to a rather minor error in driver judgment, and possibly some
inexperience on this track may also have been involved on the
part of the Corvette driver (who accepted full responsibility for
the accident). My Miata will be back on the track by early 2014
and I very much hope the Z06 owner (who is a true first class
citizen in my book, and by all accounts is also a good driver)
gets that very quick Corvette back on the track soon.
Road America - 2003 SCCA Pro Racing Spec Miata Cup
Without the help of a drafting partner, Webb still managed to post a time
that put him 18th on the grid for Sunday morning's race. By concentrating
on smooth driving and consistent lap times, Webb was able to make the most
of the short seven-lap race, finishing in 14th position, right behind San
Dimas Auto Racing teammates Andrew Fernandez and Johnny Kanavas.
