Targa Miata

August 19, 2007 - Time for the kids to come out to play.
I managed to get both the Targa Miata and my Seven out to the track together - and since I was running the day, I got to schedule myself into two run groups so I could run both cars. Ah, it's a tough life.
The event was the Flyin' Miata Open House, and the track is actually a large kart track. We've found that if you run it backwards it is a more challenging track, with a larger variety of corners including one downhill sweeper into a tight braking zone that is pretty tough. In a fast car, you have to make the choice between braking before a little kink or waiting until afterwards, in which case you don't have a lot of room for error. A number of other corners conspire to catch you up and it's a very fun challenge.
