More HPDE at Road Atlanta. I thought I would try following the gray Honda S2000. Street tires and a greasy track made for some entertaining moments (see 2:24 and 2:41) and the honda gets away. I need sticky tires. (data by RaceChrono)

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





Crash at GIR
Cold slicks on a cold, greasy track and throttle mismanagement lead to an intimate encounter with the tire wall. Probably the least fun I've had at GIR.

Race car driver heel-toe & footwork - Spec Miata
Click here to see how the race went that weekend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXYq6Yg4Tjs 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 gear. 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.
