Spec Miata Road Atlanta July 13 2013
My First Spec Miata race at Road Atlanta. I qualified well, but a spin in
turn 1 while trying to make a pass put me down a lap. I still had fun, and
the track is awesome.

SCCA ARRC Spec Miata Race at Road Atlanta - November 2, 2013
Highlights of the 2013 ARRC Spec Miata race from my perspective. Fun stuff!
My first official Spec Miata race - finished 38th out of 44. Very pleased.
For those who are interested, this was a 20 lap/40 minute race. My car is a
1990 Spec Miata with 114 horsepower at the wheels (in
other words, way more car than driver!).

Is the Mazda MX-5 Any Good? - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris has been known to not like the Mazda MX-5, even calling it
dirty words in an article a few years back. Now he gets to support his
point by swapping his Ferrari 599 with Cameraman and Editor Neil Carey's NA
Mazda MX-5. Was Chris wrong a few years ago?

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
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!!
