Funny, it was clearly a Miata... didn't think they looked anywhere similar enough to confuse. Video editor must have been looking at a lot of footage.

...and that makes 1100 posts for the kid!

I'm driving msr next weekend. I've only driven the 1.3, never the 1.7 from this vid. That double apex is long, and crests...so its pretty challenging.

Nice. He was drifting a bit in several corners. Probably pushing a little hard trying to keep that Corvette off him.

M3, Miata, easy mistake to make. Just the other day I was following what I thought was an old Austin Mini and it turned out to be a Ford Aerostar.

I think the video meant that the footage was seen "from an M3"
