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 :)
KBB Races a Mazda Miata - Part 1: Skip Barber Race School
A few months back Kelley Blue Book got the crazy idea to go spec racing in
a Miata. With a little guidance from some smart folks at Mazda our first
step in preparing for fender-to-fender racing was to send our driver, KBB's
Micah Muzio, to Skip Barber's 3-day Mazda MX-5 Race School. In this, the
first of a 3-part series, Micah learns the ins and outs of driving on a
race track and what it takes to win behind the wheel of Mazda's popular
Kelley Blue Book is your source for car reviews, road tests, new car

Uploading this really long vid just to show my friends that said "no
way..." The last 4 clips stuck on are of laps at 1.28.23~1.28.15 To show
consistency later in the day. This was my first track event where I could
go as fast as I wanted too. Doing the events at Ford's Test track we always
had speed limits... Still learning and I'm sure I could get much faster. Watching these as I spliced them
together I can pick out mistakes I made everywhere... Still... Not as many
as the people I pass :) Or maybe I just wanted it more... idk. At any rate
it was a ton of fun! Can't wait for the next one!
Full laps with pass validation through the next few turns or even full laps
if it leads up to more passes. Clips are un edited except for the clip of
my pulling from my parking spot to the staging lane, that was played at
300% to speed it up. All other clips played at normal speed. (you can tell
by watching)I will be using these clips with others to make a nice short
video that will be designed around entertaining while this one is just pure
racing, no fades, no mixing clips for the right effect, just one camera
shot all the way around showing the speed and the chase.
Chased the Fox body for a while... that guy was fast! (At least compared to
(Open track day with the Shelby Club having fun and chasing each other
around. Passing only on the back straight, and blue flagged to do so. )
The white Fox Body has a 346ci engine built for Endurance racing... That
car is prepped, just not aero changes.
My car is a 1991 Miata with Enkie Wheels, Dunlop Star Spec tires, a Racing
beat header, Lightened Flywheel, and home made roll bar. Other wise stock.
Tires are 205 50 15s on 15x7 inch rims.

No music or anything just fun on the track.
