Spec Miata Mayhem at Sebring - Nov 2013 SCCA Turkey Trot Race
Qualified poorly at 16th out of 50. Bad start and shuffled back to 23rd by turn 3. Great fun working up through the field to finish 10th. This is why we love racing Spec Miata!





Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Solo Autocross Racing
One of my runs at the autocross event at the Green Lot at Turner Field. I'm driving my 1998 BMW M3 roadster with my camera strapped to the passenger seat headrest. The cones define the course and dictate on which side you must pass the cones. At 72 years old I am not competitive but it is a blast to run the course.





2013 SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Road America
This is the 50th SCCA National Championship Runoffs H Production race as seen from the #99 Toyota Yaris of Jason Isley. Started 5th, but it didn't last long as things went bad in a hurry. In Turn 1 I received a hit in the right rear corner from Chris Albin, who appeared to dip his right side tires in the grass under braking, which knocked the alignment out of whack - fortunately Road America is predominately right hand turns, and the car still worked great in those, but the car picked up a big push in Turns 5, 6 and 8. At the same time two of the leaders, Tim Pitts and Jay Griffin, got together just ahead of me. Luckily just as I recovered the car a gap opened between the spinning cars, and I came out in 3rd place. However, a black flag all reset the field to the previous order for the restart - back to 5th. About mid-point in the time shorten race things took a turn for the worse, I had a run going down to Canada Corner and went for the outside at Kettle Bottoms, Albin started to drift right, I went left and so did he. On a prior lap I had passed him in the same place, on the left side, and I guess he took notes and was not going to leave that door open again. The hit killed the front of my car. With the front now flattened my top speed was limited and the car began to overheat. Was happy to hold on for the 6th and final trophy.
