March 11, 2012 Road Atlanta Miata Crash - NASA HPDE 2 group

This 2003 Miata Shinsen Edition was a brand new build by OPM Autosports in Cumming, GA. They installed cage, seat, Schroth 6 point harness, SPA AFFF 6 nozzle fire suppression system, radiator, brake lines, tow hooks and much more. They also oversaw the painting of the interior and hard top. Their workmanship is beyond reproach. It really was the coolest looking track Miata I had ever seen -- which makes this story so sad (OPM also did ride height, corner weights and alignment for Spec Miata class and provided track side support for this NASA SE event). I was in HPDE 2 group (one step above beginners). I waited three months for the build to complete. I promised myself I would not wreck on the very first weekend I had the car back but ... I did. I hit the inside wall after T3 pretty hard. Personally, I think I went to full throttle too soon at T3. If I had just waited a few tenths longer until the right rear tire had cleared the curbing before mashing the throttle, I think I would have been ok. It's a painful lesson. Here are pics of car after repairs - better than new!! https://picasaweb.google.com/106213036764439306024/2003ShinsenSM

Road Atlanta Corvette Z06 chasing MTI Z06
This was taken at Road Atlanta running with NASA on March 16, 2008. I am driving a relatively stock C5 Z06 Corvette trying to keep up with a highly modified MTI Corvette Z06. I was able to keep up in the corners, but it had a lot of power to pull away on the straights. I am on Nitto 555R2 tires that are now due for replacement. The owner of the MTI Z06 is a very nice guy and has a very cool car. It was a lot of fun trying to keep up.
