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

A brief walk around Crusher after the 2011 Thunderhill 25 Hours. Lots of
damage, but we got the win. Thanks to all of our supporters and sponsors.
Later this week we'll have our in car video compilation of the battles,
crashes, pit work, pole lap and more. Thanks for watching!
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.

KBB Races a Mazda Miata - Part 1: Skip Barber Race School
A few months back Kelley Blue Book got the crazy idea to go spec racing in
a Miata. With a little guidance from some smart folks at Mazda our first
step in preparing for fender-to-fender racing was to send our driver, KBB's
Micah Muzio, to Skip Barber's 3-day Mazda MX-5 Race School. In this, the
first of a 3-part series, Micah learns the ins and outs of driving on a
race track and what it takes to win behind the wheel of Mazda's popular
Kelley Blue Book is your source for car reviews, road tests, new car

Mazda Miata Cylinder Head Resurface
Here's another problem that John Edwards @ Costa Mesa R&D AUtomotive
Machine Shop was asked to solve. His client has a Miata cylinder head that
was resurfaced on a belt sander. The surface finish was horrible and caused
the gasket to blow out. A quick trip on the Sunnen HBS1300 and the cylinder
head had a more than acceptable surface on 16 Ra. Don't forget to 'Click'

Flyin' Miata goes racing - preview
A preview of the video project about the Targa Newfoundland 2011 race, and
Flyin' Miata's entry. It stars the Targa Miata - now with V8 power - as

Adam Costa, the man behind the project, is hoping to raise a bit of money
so he can bring a bigger crew to the race. If you'd like to pre-order a DVD
or poster, stop by his Kickstarter page.
SCCA Spec Miata Race at Auto Club Speedway
This is my second Spec Miata Race. I started in last place (23rd) after a
DNF on Saturday. I finished 7th after passing 16 cars. You will see hand
signals between myself and other drivers showing how we work together to
catch up to the next group of cars. I can't think of a better way to
practice race craft. Thanks to Rush Motorsports for a very capable car.

Uploading this really long vid just to show my friends that said "no
way..." The last 4 clips stuck on are of laps at 1.28.23~1.28.15 To show
consistency later in the day. This was my first track event where I could
go as fast as I wanted too. Doing the events at Ford's Test track we always
had speed limits... Still learning and I'm sure I could get much faster. Watching these as I spliced them
together I can pick out mistakes I made everywhere... Still... Not as many
as the people I pass :) Or maybe I just wanted it more... idk. At any rate
it was a ton of fun! Can't wait for the next one!
Full laps with pass validation through the next few turns or even full laps
if it leads up to more passes. Clips are un edited except for the clip of
my pulling from my parking spot to the staging lane, that was played at
300% to speed it up. All other clips played at normal speed. (you can tell
by watching)I will be using these clips with others to make a nice short
video that will be designed around entertaining while this one is just pure
racing, no fades, no mixing clips for the right effect, just one camera
shot all the way around showing the speed and the chase.
Chased the Fox body for a while... that guy was fast! (At least compared to
(Open track day with the Shelby Club having fun and chasing each other
around. Passing only on the back straight, and blue flagged to do so. )
The white Fox Body has a 346ci engine built for Endurance racing... That
car is prepped, just not aero changes.
My car is a 1991 Miata with Enkie Wheels, Dunlop Star Spec tires, a Racing
beat header, Lightened Flywheel, and home made roll bar. Other wise stock.
Tires are 205 50 15s on 15x7 inch rims.

No music or anything just fun on the track.

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.
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.
