A short film, made entirely with a digital still camera. Maximum shot
length was 20 seconds, at 10 frames per second in 320x240 resolution.
Porsche Hunting 2 - Miata vs Porsches
Laguna Seca Session 3 on March 19th, 2008. Bunch of black Porsches
eventually end up in the rearview. Looks like a Carrera convertible, then
a Carrera hardtop, then a 914, then something that looks like it has a
luggage rack for a spoiler, and then uh...well that's a Mitsubishi Eclipse,
and then a Boxer.
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.
LS1 Miata vs. 650rwhp Camaro

Stock engine Miata vs V8 Mustang
In this in-car video I chase a V8 Mustang in my stock engine 130 hp '95
Miata on the 1.1-mi East Track at Firebird International Raceway near
Phoenix, AZ during a ProAutoSports HPDE event. The Mustang was much faster on the short straights and I was a
fair bit faster in the turns, but
I lacked the hp to get by -- and the Mustang driver may not have been
aware he was actually holding me up. My lap times were nearly three
seconds slower while following the Mustang during the early track
sessions that day than when I was running on an open track. But in the
last track session of the day when the Mustang driver had more experience on
this track, I had a far tougher time catching him than I did in the first
couple track sessions in the morning -- he's really quite a decent driver
when he knows the track, and his Mustang is well setup.
