Miata Challenge round #1-Buttonwillow!
The first rule of Miata Challenge: Itís not Fight Club.
Who will be Niki Lauda and who will be James Hunt this year?
Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna?
Will Matthew K hold his 0.2 second gap over Pablo this year (Bastard!).
Will William be able to beat Emilio using Emilio's own car this year? Always a bridesmaid, never a bride...
Itís safe! [Safest trackday organization you'll ever run with.]
trackday's are safe. Everyone is going the same direction, 99% of the time. Or 90%.
Have you seen your insurance increase after a ticket or three? Or the cost of tickets now with any supplemental fees!?
How can it not be? Often we do night before bbqís where we grill beef and drink good craft beers (thereís rumor to be bourbon at select events!).
Driving the cars at your limit is beyond fun! Bring a spouse, bring a friend, give each other joy rides (in the cars).
Heck, Iíll give you a joy ride but wonít guarantee actually being fast, lol.
Round 1 traditionally visits Buttonwillow Raceway. A lovely track-2.63 miles of wicked goodness.
This is really one of the best tracks around. Some technical sections, some fast sections, some elevation changesÖ
It doesnít get better than this unless youíre that little b*tch of a historic track that rhymes with bagoona Leca or some thunderous mound.
It's also been repaved recently so the tarmac is as smooth as a baby's butt!
Round 1 is Buttonwillow 13cw configuration. The fastest. Youíll be fastest here, and suave, very suave.

Pablo; amateur wannabe race car driver, philanthropist*
*my philanthropy is limited to throwing my money at good beer and beef steaks. That occurs at the track the night before when we bbq.
And we WILL be BBQing at the track the night before. You can camp there or sleep in a local hotel but dont miss the festivities...
