Race car driver heel-toe & footwork - Spec Miata
Click here to see how the race went that weekend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXYq6Yg4Tjs
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 gear.
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.
