KBB Races a Mazda Miata - Part 1: Skip Barber Race School

A few months back Kelley Blue Book got the crazy idea to go spec racing in a Miata. With a little guidance from some smart folks at Mazda our first step in preparing for fender-to-fender racing was to send our driver, KBB's Micah Muzio, to Skip Barber's 3-day Mazda MX-5 Race School. In this, the first of a 3-part series, Micah learns the ins and outs of driving on a race track and what it takes to win behind the wheel of Mazda's popular little roadster.

Miata spanking 2012 & 2013 Boss 302s and corvettes. Read Description.
Driver: Nate Pace Uploading this really long vid just to show my friends that said "no way..." The last 4 clips stuck on are of laps at 1.28.23~1.28.15 To show consistency later in the day. This was my first track event where I could go as fast as I wanted too. Doing the events at Ford's Test track we always had speed limits... Still learning and I'm sure I could get much faster. Watching these as I spliced them together I can pick out mistakes I made everywhere... Still... Not as many as the people I pass :) Or maybe I just wanted it more... idk. At any rate it was a ton of fun! Can't wait for the next one! Full laps with pass validation through the next few turns or even full laps if it leads up to more passes. Clips are un edited except for the clip of my pulling from my parking spot to the staging lane, that was played at 300% to speed it up. All other clips played at normal speed. (you can tell by watching)I will be using these clips with others to make a nice short video that will be designed around entertaining while this one is just pure racing, no fades, no mixing clips for the right effect, just one camera shot all the way around showing the speed and the chase. Chased the Fox body for a while... that guy was fast! (At least compared to me.) (Open track day with the Shelby Club having fun and chasing each other around. Passing only on the back straight, and blue flagged to do so. ) The white Fox Body has a 346ci engine built for Endurance racing... That car is prepped, just not aero changes. My car is a 1991 Miata with Enkie Wheels, Dunlop Star Spec tires, a Racing beat header, Lightened Flywheel, and home made roll bar. Other wise stock. Tires are 205 50 15s on 15x7 inch rims. Waterford hills race track. (Michigan) Shot with Go-Pro Hero2 No music or anything just fun on the track.

The Answer is Always Miata - /TUNED
Ask any car guy, what would make a good first car? Miata. What would make a good weekend car? Miata. What would make a good tuner car? Miata. What would be a good race car? Miata. What could I drive that Chris Harris won't like? Miata. It seems the answer is always Miata. This week, CJ Wilson Racing and Continental Tire invite us to Austin, TX to test two of their best Miatas on the track.

2012 Mazda Miata MX-5 Convertible Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mazda/mx-5-miata/2012/?id=32972 The Mazda MX-5 is the one true sports car that has lasted the test of time. The recipe for success was written ling ago: convertible top, sport scar design, engine up front, and rear wheel drive. The 2012 Mazda Miata MX-5 carries on the torch. Sure there are cars like the BMW Z4 or the Porsche Boxster but those cost twice as much! The 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata starts at $23,470 with the top of the line Grand Touring costing $30,050. What's cool about the MX-5 is that you can get this hot little roadster with a convertible that is either a soft top or a hard top. The 2012 Mazda MX-5 is powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 158 horsepower and 140 lb-ft. of torque. You may be thinking that the Miata MX-5 is underpowered, but the engine has more than enough grunt to move the ultra light vehicle weight of 2645 lbs. Really the 2012 Mazda MX-5 is the closest you can get to real track performance at this price. And even though the MX-5 was tuned for the track, the convertible rides very well on regular roads. The engine is responsive and the steering is quick. Take one for a test drive and you will be hooked.
