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!

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.
This is 5 laps from the Sarrc Invitational Challenge, the championship race
for the SCCA Southeast Division at Roebling Road Raceway near Savannah, GA,
held October 9th, 2011.
