STS Miata • Auto-X On the edge!

Hello savvy internet type fellows! This is footage from the third event of the 2010 NWR SCCA Regional Solo Series. This was an epic event (at least for me) because I finally learned one of the great secrets of winning: Drive faster than everyone else. …and that’s what I did.

The course was wet as a dolphins dining room saturated from the morning rains when our run group started, but had dried almost completely by the time this video was recorded. Though you can see (on the inset view) that things could turn around unexpectedly at any moment (quite literally in my case). Nevertheless the Miata handled like a needle balanced on a razor blade flawlessly and my sudden streak of Irish luck superb driving won out the day.

This run was clocked at 46.033 seconds (or for those who are PAX Index savvy: Top Pax Baby!)

Here’s a link to the results (look for me under NS4, or you can just proceed to the top of the Index List)

STS Miata + Cones FTW!? or The 2010 Auto-x Season Begins!

This is footage from the second event of the 2010 WWSCC Slush Series, sort of a preseason series to the normal WWSCC season. The event took place at Sanderson Field in Shelton, WA.

I’m driving a 1993 STS Miata, owned by Peter Umino. This was my first event in the car this year and I feel I was still knocking the rust off per se. There were many places on course where I could have gone faster, but just didn’t trust the car. A few more events should solidify our relationship.
