Apparently he bought the car Thursday. Wrecked it Saturday morning at Buttonwillow. Dad and I were a corner behind him; the Rx7 who was right behind him said he came over Lost Hill, got sideways, dropped a wheel, and as soon as he dropped the wheel it hooked hard. Landed on all four corners, at least 4 flips. Driver walked away, thank god.

The plate isn't from that car. It's from his other car, which he put into a tire wall the previous week at Streets of Willow IIRC. The reason he bought this car was because his other Miata wasn't going to be ready for this event.

Who allows convertibles on track w/o a bar? I thought pretty much everyone running events had adopted that rule by now.

That's one lucky dumb guy. After wrecking 2 cars in 2 weeks I hope he's banned from the track. There's no way he should have been on the track without a roll bar. I can't believe there are clubs that would allow that. I get harassed because my autopower sport isn't tall enough. Have to keep my hardtop on. I hope that scared some sense into him. Walking away from it he might not have learned his lesson though.

On your car. It looks like your turn signals are removed completely. Do you take them out for the track or do you have signals hidden somewhere?

The rollbar is covered up by the softtop, which popped up while he was cartwheeling in the air. It's just a single hoop, but he would have been dead without it. It's hard to see, but it's there.

Damn good thing he had it. Can't see with the softop mangled over it. Good to see that even single hoops like the hard bar can still save your butt. He should send pics to the manufacturer. See if he can wheedle a replacement out of them for the endorsement.

I can't tell if he's one of the stocky build japanese or if he's mexican. I've got about that much extra padding too but I leave my shirt on in public. Not something to be proud of.
