2013 BRSCC Mazda MX-5 championship Meeting 2 Croft
The BRSCC Mazda MX5 Championship season continued at Croft Circuit on the
weekend of 11th/12th May 2013. This was the first of 3 triple-header events
that are scheduled this season. It was great to see 32 competitors make
their way up to Croft and was a further indictment of the BRSCC
Championship being the best supported Mazda MX5 for Mark 1 cars in the UK.
A single qualifying session decided the grids for the opening race on
Saturday with the results of the preceding race forming the basis for the
grids for both races held on Sunday. All qualifying sessions and races were
for 20 minutes in duration.
Saturday was cold and windy and whilst Sunday morning started with bright
sunshine, both races on Sunday were held in wet conditions.
MaX5 Racing - Croft - 28th April 2013 - Mazda MX-5 Mk1
An overview of my weekend at Croft - I don't know the track very well (only
done one truncated, sessioned track day previously) and it showed, didn't
feel comfortable in the car and despite having reasonable pace couldn't
string together consistent laps, qualifying 5th in class and finishing 4th
in both races.
Conditions were a bit slippery at times with some patchy light rain, but
this just kept it interesting :)
Star Mazda Series at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
Race 2 from the 2012 Star Mazda Series race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. I
qualified 10th (based on fast time from race 1) in the 20 car field. I
ended up finishing 7th! Awesome 50min race and a blast to drive for JDC
Ma5da MX5 Croft Race 2 - The Crash
http://MEEZER.com Started 7th then crashed in the middle of the race. First
accident this season. Many first's this weekend. :D
The team managed to get the car ready within an hour for the 3rd race.
Still, the front end was very messed up and I had to race without the
anti-roll bar, which made an interesting 3rd race.

Blyton Park Track Day 4th June 2012 - Mazda MX-5 Race Car #28
My first time driving this car, on a track day at Blyton Park.
First two sessions were 'drizzly' and 'torrential', but the car felt great
- unfortunately the camera had a fit and didn't record...

Mazda MX5 GT Race Car Build
See the Mazda MX-5 GT race car being built for the Britcar MSA British
Endurance Championship race series 2011.
Mazda is set to challenge Aston Martin, Porsche, Lotus, and BMW on the race
track with its lightweight Mazda MX-5 GT entry in the Britcar MSA British
Endurance Championship 2011.
Weighing in at just 850kg, the Mazda MX-5 GT race car will accelerate from
0-to-60mph in just three seconds and hit a top speed of 160mph. The build
of the car has been an engineering challenge to get the weight as low as
possible using Mazda's gram strategy as the inspiration. Jota Sport
examined every nut and bolt to reduce component weight and then match the
power to the weight to give the lightest and most powerful MX-5 ever built.
An important aspect of the build was to ensure the Mazda MX-5 still remains
true to its roots: great handling, huge fun-to-drive and the ability to
challenge bigger more powerful competition, but at an affordable cost. The
Mazda GT car ticks all those boxes and is now set to demonstrate its
challenger spirit on the track.
Jota Sport, the race engineering team that will run the cars in the 2011
series, took 400 hours to build the shell to a specification that ensured
it was 17 times stronger than required by the FIA. During the development
they faced a number of engineering challenges such as suspension
adjustments, integrating the six speed sequential gearbox, and lowering the
engine. Weight saving strategies such as, the removal of interior
components, reducing component weight and dipping the shell in acid lost
15kg from the MX-5 race car.

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
