V8 Miata on Targa Newfoundland - Garnish stage

Ride along with the Targa Miata crew on one of the classic Targa Newfoundland stages in 2011. Garnish has a bit of everything - high speed through the woods, tight little town streets, smooth pavement, rough pavement - it's a real workout for the car and the crew. You can hear the 100 mph wheelspin right near the beginning of the stage. The team was leading the Open Division of the race at this point. The car is powered by a modified L33 V8 engine, making between 350 and 400 hp and a 6-speed transmission. The conversion was done using parts from V8Roadsters, as are all the V8 conversions from Flyin' Miata. Suspension is the FM AFCO setup, working hard in this stage. It was built and driven by Keith Tanner and navigated by Janel Tanner. For more on the car, see http://www.targamiata.com. For more on Flyin' Miata's V8 conversions, see http://www.flyinmiata.com/v8

A 250 hp Miata vs a 430 hp Corvette
ProAutoSports and Bob Bondurant team up to hold a track day at the Bondurant High Performance and Race Driving School near Phoenix. This video clip features a moderately modded 2004 MazdaSpeed Miata with about 250 flywheel hp (200 rwhp on a Dyno) following a 430 hp late model Corvette. The well driven Miata (with a passenger in the car) does pretty well considering the huge power advantage of the Corvette, but the Vette does eventually pull ahead slowly.
