That R8 looks SICK though. That lip looks bad *** on there.

I'd like to paint a track Miata up like a shark, that way when you come up on those ballin *** cars, they will see a shark coming up behind them *cue the Jaws music*

Do it like a shark mouth from military aircraft.

I was running quicker than any car but a full race 350hp 944 with a very experienced racer behind the wheel. I'm not so talented but that track is perfect for smaller cars that handle well. Me coming in for the kill...

Big Stig? No way. **** poor driver. He'd hammer it on the straights but was scared to corner. Not good for that track. He bought that Ariel used this year and he's only done a few track days. He's still afraid of the car. When I say he's at least 400lbs that is not an exageration. I'm not exactly slim and trim but that guy was a huge tub of goo.

He was out having fun though and trying to learn and improve. I don't fault him for that.

Working on finding some better video of the v8 atom and the R8. Hopefully someone running that day posts something up better.

Curly, you gotta get some R-comps. Would have really pissed off the R8, heavily modded evo, stock STI, M3's, two 996's, full race s2000 and that yellow Atom having TWO Miatas owning them all day. Actually the two guys driving 996's were cool about it as well as a very good driver in a Works Mini. The Porsche guys are thinking a turbo Miata like ours might be a good way to hit the track with less financial risk.
