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.

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!!
Fundamental Skills of Heel-and-Toe
This is a more complete and revised version of a shorter demonstration
video I made on the heel-and-toe technique back in May.
This demonstration video summarizes and demonstates the fundamental skills
involved and how the combined skills are used to master the heel-and-toe
technique. The exercise numbers (#1-11) reference the written version of
the 20-exercise guide by Garage Woolery. The remaining 9 exercises are
advanced versions of the first 11.
