"Thanks guys, I am sure that I speak on behalf of all of the forum members when I say that we LOVE to see the races we cannot attend. Not only do we race vicariously though you, but we also get to see tracks that we have never driven before."

 

 

Thanks Danny, funny thing...that's how I came to Spec Miata.  I saw one of my buddies video of him racing a spec miata and I thought, "I can do that"   :panic:

Here's my video from Sunday's race with front and rear cameras on the banking.  I wasn't getting off the last corner very well and kept losing the pack so I had a great view of the 3-8 battle from just about every vantage point.  Unfortunately my camera died about 2/3rds the way through but lots of great stuff in the mean time. 

 

 

Apologies to Mark on the start, I was all up his tailpipe.  People broke earlier than I expected/normal.  Rusty alllllmost had the move of the race threading the needle.  :)

 

Ken, here's another link for you:

 (@ 13:45 - you can also watch Dean throw a smoke screen on us as he says adios to his RF)  And watch the rear view camera here; I think this is Charlie pushing Dean to the track record.  As we come onto the banking, you can't even see those two, and by the time we get to T1, they cruise past me with probably 10mph - CHOO CHOO!

Tons of fun - look forward to doing it again at Buttonwillow and/or Thunderhill, and then, Laguna!

Wow, Brian. Never knew you were there. Seems like I should have but I must have been just far enough ahead that you didn't come into my view. You were the 3rd car passing me on that one turn and I must have just lost track of you. I think I would have had to flip me off after that. Thanks for the grace....

I'll give you a point by at Laguna - assuming I'm ahead of you. :^)

Ken, I told you that you need to stop texting while you're racing...


I have an opinion so I must be right
