Spec Miata Crash At Infineon
This was the Labor Day double regional at Infineon. I dropped a wheel off
on the exit of 8a and put the car in the tire wall on the outside of T9.
Willow Springs Raceway NASA spec miata race
Here are several laps from my 3rd NASA race. I don't have much racing
experience (still on my rookie license) but still managed to qualify 15th
out of 22 cars, and ended up finishing 15th. I lost 5th gear on the day
before but still managed to do okay with only 4 gears. This race track is a
ton of fun!
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!!
