ahh the guam drag track, still wish they fixed the area where you drive though since you had to drive though water which was crap.
Go and try to autocross your miata, the fees are pretty cheap to autocross over there, go talk to manny, dunno if you heard of him, he runs a white rx7 turbo II over at the local autocross, tell him justin told you about it, if you weren't aware of it before. www.guamroadracers.com

Nice run, though when was that, because I don't see many cars there, was this a one off thing? Or had everyone left? I used to run my Sentra at the drag track and autocross it.

lol! no highways here on guam. max speed limit is 45 in like two places. other wise its 35 mph. But there are smooth backroads that i hit up for private runs. Because its rare to see cops back there. but i prefer the track.
