Can I bring my 120whp-ish SM?
You bet. It will be a bit down on power compared to a 140whp SuperMiata on the Spec Maxxis RC-1's but you should be competitive if you are on RR's or Hoosiers. See rules link above for what constitutes a SuperMiata. If you want to use up last years R888's or RA-1's, pull the restrictor and ballast. The SuperMiata spec tire is the Maxxis RC-1 (100tw). It's a 5/32 slick pattern, a bit faster than an RA-1 and lasts about as long. Racer price is $109 for drivers entered in en event. Contact me through our facebook group or email 949 Racing for more info on purchasing RC-1's.
How do I register?
Will my existing SCCA, BMWCCA, POC or NASA comp license be recognized by SuperMiata?
Current license, you bet.
How much track time?
More than with any other organization. Usually 1:40 per day over 5 sessions.
What laps times are the SuperMiatas running?
The front runners are typically running 1-2s under SM lap records
What are the prizes?
Close, hard racing with several national championship winning drivers in very well set up cars. Eternal glory. Not much in the way of cash. Plenty of tasty beverages.
