Coach crashes new Z06 at Laguna Seca
Sad but true. A good friend of mine let his driving coach take his brand
new Z06 out for a few laps at Laguna Seca. The coach promptly put it in the
wall. Happened to have a camera at the location of the crash and caught a
few stills which are at the end of the video. Moral of the story: never let
anyone drive your car at the track.
Race car driver heel-toe & footwork - Spec Miata
Click here to see how the race went that weekend:
My footwork in the Spec Miata race car at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The
car is prepared by Ed Railton and Premier Auto Service.
This footage was taken at the end of a long test day, during which I
seriously burned off my tires. As a result it was hard to get a 1:51 lap
time, which is about 2-3 seconds slower than it should have been. I did
mid-1:48s when I got fresher rubber. In the video I'm feathering the
throttle more than usual.
You'll notice the shift from 2nd to 3rd is slower. The 3rd gear synchro is
weak in first generation Miatas, and if you shift too fast it hurts the
You'll also notice copious left-foot braking in turns 3 and 10. I start the
video during braking for turn 11.
I was surprised I could find a spot for the Contour down there, but it's
got a lot of mounting options and it was pretty simple to get a good angle.
Some quick settings changes on the lap top and it was good to go.
I like watching the dirt in the footwell shooting back and forth. With
nearly 1.5 G, it's like upending a bucket.

In the begining of our 2011 season we hosted the Ferrari Racing Days

own the cars) for allowing us to send some cameras along for the ride. Also
big thanks to Jay Rosas and Vision Wells On-Track Video Productions for
lending himself, his expertise in mounting cameras on extremely expensive
cars, and his fleet of Contour cameras. The other big thanks of note goes
to Phillip Powell and Charlie Davis for shooting the large format HD shots

Spec Miata Mayhem at Roebling
Nothing like the start of a Spec Miata race for crazy excitement. People
get shuffled out of order and it takes a few laps to sort things out. Make
sure you see the action at 2:20.

Speedway Motors 2012 SCCA Solo National Championships Music Video
--[For best viewing experience, watch in 720p ᴴᴰ]--
Music: DJ Fresh - Hot Right Now (Ft. Rita Ora) (Camo & Krooked Remix)
The concrete runways of Lincoln Airpark once again played host to the
largest motorsports competition in the world - the Tire Rack SCCA Solo
National Championships. The competition was fierce and the temperatures
were hot at the 40th running of the four-day event. The sheer number of
Soloists was staggering, nearly reaching a record high. After more than a
thousand events and drivers' skills honed to the sharpest point of the
season, there was very little room for error at the national site.
A short spurt of rain, hail, and rainbows marked the end of the first day,
followed by hot and dry conditions for the second and third days.
Temperatures dropped significantly on the final day of competition and with
clouds looming overhead, rain looked imminent. Luckily the threatening
storms pushed north and the site remained dry. Among the 69 National
Champions crowned, was a pair of husband and wife teams as well as two
drivers in their first year of competition. This year also marked the debut
of the Road Tire Category and saw three drivers complete the prestigious
Solo Triad Award.
