Spec Miata Battle at Mission Raceway Park

A great race with six lead changes, bump drafting, lots of oversteer and tight clean racing. This was a fight till almost the last lap at Mission's River's Edge Roadcourse in Mission BC. This was also the Sports Car Club of British Columbia's 60th Anniversary Weekend on April 14th 2011. Best parts on the video: 6:15(Very sideways entering turn 4) 11:03 (Loosing the back end on turn 1 allowing Mark to get along side) 13:30 (Catching up to back markers and bump drafting on the main straight) 15:20 (The intense battle begins and we start pushing the cars to the ragged edge till the chequered flag) After the battle Mark and I both drove our cars home on public streets!

2015 SCCA Runoffs Broadcast- Spec Miata
Full video of the "Friday Night Lights" Spec Miata race at the 2015 Runoffs under the lights at Daytona International Speedway. Race Recap below (Racer.com Article): Jonathan Goring, of Norfolk, Conn., came storming from back in the pack to grab the Spec Miata National Championship at the SCCA Runoffs Presented by Garmin VIRB under the speedway's lights as part of Friday Night Lights Presented by Mazda, at Daytona International Speedway. Andrew Carbonell, of Miami, Fla., finished second, while Cory Collum, of Miami, Fla., edged Alex Bolanos at the line for third. With a heavy shower having just passed through the area prior to the green flag, the track was wet and slick, leaving drivers to choose a wet or dry strategy at the last minute. For all but the last half lap, no one, including Goring, would have guessed the driver of the No. 118 Alfas Unlimited/Dixon/Rossini Mazda Miata would finish the race in the top position. Goring was not even in the picture for the lead battle until Turn Six of lap 14, after he came charging through the field in drying conditions that finally suited his set up and jumped into the lead. "I don't even know if it's hit me yet," Goring said. "I'm sure once I get home it will finally start to settle in. Right now, it's a little shock and a little amazement. I'm just pleased with the effort that my family, and I, put in. We're a family team, so I'm just happy all the work has finally paid off." In the wet, the race appeared to be a two-car competition between Floridians Bolanos and Collum. The pair worked together to break away from the field on wet-weather Hoosier race tires, and remained there until a dry line began to form on the track. By then Goring, with the help of Carbonell and Chris Haldeman's No. 72 X-factor Racing/Carbotech Miata, was on the move through the field. During his last three circuits, Goring was turning lap times four seconds quicker than the fading leaders. "We were sitting in the trailer, in the paddock, with dry tires on and we went back and forth between whether we should use wets or drys about 20 times. I was pacing around and chewing my fingernails off trying to figure out what to do. So, we ended up putting the rains on because we saw that a shower was moving in. We went to the grid on rains, and then made the last minute decision to switch to dry tires. In the middle of the change I second-guessed that decision. But, I said to myself 'You know what, let's go.' "During the first four or five laps, I knew the leaders had gotten pretty far ahead and knew that I needed a partner. I tapped my brakes, Andrew [Carbonell] and I got together, and as the track started to dry, we started moving forward. I knew that I needed to get by as many people as possible. I didn't know I was in the lead until I got into pit lane after the cool-down lap when they pointed me to victory circle. I kept asking where I was on the radio, but had a bad radio connection. So, all I could hear was static." Also on a dry set-up, Carbonell's No. 79 BSI Racing Mazda Miata paired up with Goring as the dry line formed. Using the draft, Carbonell powered himself around Bolanos' No. 57 Momo/Autotechnik/Apex Alignment Miata and Collum's No. 23 Auto Galaxy/AutoTechnik Miata just after Goring did.
