For anyone who has raced Spec Miata at Daytona, you know how much FUN it is and what a crap shoot it can be. If you are not getting a draft or being pushed, you are going to be cleaned up. This is the track where drafting is ALL IMPORTANT. Almost 2 seconds a lap faster with help than your best lap on your own. So much fun.
Back in 2014 I posted a video entitled "THIS IS WHY I LOVE SPEC MIATA", and it has had 45,000 views to date, but unfortunately back then I uploaded it in low resolution as I was bandwidth limited, so I decided to re-edit and re-encode it and it is now looks a lot better (but still not full 1080p though)
Join me for this wonderful race that features Andrew Carbonnel, Selin Rollan, Andrew Charbonneau, Matt van Vurst, Jamie Tucker, Cory Collum, Thomas Burt, Chris Amon, Denny Harrell and many more.
Two of the priceless moments are...
- 8:00 - Shortly after the first restart, getting onto the oval in 6th, getting to the bus-stop in 4th watching 1 thru 3 spin out in front of me, exit the bus stop in 1st and get to Turn 1 in 8th. I kid you not
- 18:30 - On the last lap I go for the pass over Carbonnel for the win, only to end up 3rd behind Rollan and Tucker - DOH!
