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 multi-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.
