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.

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.

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.

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!).
