Miata of the Month
Miata.net is a hugely popular Miata website, and every month they feature a car. We were the Miata of the Month for September 2008, coinciding with the race. This led to a huge bump in our website traffic and interest in the race itself.
We were also chosen as Miata of the Month on the German equivalent site in October 2008, but that feature is no longer available.
