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 above beginners). 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!! https://picasaweb.google.com/106213036764439306024/2003ShinsenSM

Fast Spec Miata Lap at Road Atlanta
This was my best lap of the weekend. Unfortunately it was still 1 second off the pole. Thanks to Mike in his pinkmobile for the tow. I wish I could have been just a little closer to stay in his draft. 1992 1.6L Spec Miata Hoosier tires 60 degrees temperature Recorded with GoPro HERO2 camera and Traqmate Data Acquisition Video created with TraqStudio





FujiRacing Miata Redline Time Attack 1st Place E Town
FujiRacing Naturally Aspirated ITB Miata 184 WHP Redline Time Attack 1st Place Mod/RWD Englishtown NJ 2009. Engine Built by Raul Rodriguez. Driver: Thomas Hiromoto 2nd Place-Pontiac Solstice turbo 270 HP 3rd Place Z06 4th Place 240sx turbo. Redline is 9000 RPM's & it came in handy. This course shows exactly what ITB's do on a all around circuit with tight corners and straight. Advantage of ITB's/Cams isnot only the Throttle Response but Low~Top end performance unlike any other type of induction system. Thank-You Raul & Thomas and to all of you that came out to see what a Miata can really do on a circuit.
