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.





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

2013 Road Atlanta Majors Spec Miata Race 2 - Danny Steyn vs Andrew Carbonell
Race 2 was a real barn burner with many lead changes. Steyn starts from outside pole, drops back as far as 4th place, works back to the front with 6 to go and tries to gap Rossini engine team mate Andrew Carbonell, but to no avail. On the last lap Carbonel makes an attempt in T3 and bangs into Steyn twise, Steyn saves it, and continues in the lead. Carbonnel drafts Steyn on the back straight and makes the clean pass in T10A to get the win by 1/10th second. Dillon MacHavern back in 3rd place
