Default Miatoberfest At Sebring

Ok, here's in official announcement and thread for the 2012 Miatoberfest Miata Meet and More hosted by 5X Racing and being held in during the NASA Florida race weekend on October 6-7th!

Having helped organize and create the concept of a Miata meet at Sebring Raceway last year, when I heard that there wasn't going to be a Miata meet at Sebring this year, I was disappointed to say the least. SO, I had a unique opportunity to make this happen again this year, and my company is happy to host this event for Miata fans that are interested in a cool place to meet up, and are interested in getting their Miata's out on the track or auto-x event via NASA.

So, we have just really concreted this within the last couple of days, but I wanted to get it out here and published so that anyone interested can book mark the dates and make plans.

Here's the details as of now and what this 2-day event will hold:

Saturday October 6th:
-Miata Meet within Sebring International Raceway
-Prize raffles and giveaways
-5X Racing hosted after party (for those hard core enough to stay until after the races)
-NASA FL Hyperdrive opportunities for $75 (more info later)
-NASA FL HPDE/Time Trial opportunities (pricing and registration info later)
-Auto-X event (more info here: nasaforums.com • View topic - New for summer/fall 2012: NASA-X (autocross) at Sebring!


Sunday October 7th:
-NASA FL Hyperdrive opportunities for $75 (more info later)
-NASA FL HPDE/Time Trial opportunities (pricing and registration info later)
-Auto-X event (more info here: nasaforums.com • View topic - New for summer/fall 2012: NASA-X (autocross) at Sebring!

The main day for the meet is going to be on Saturday, from around 10am-whenever. Wheel to wheel racing and HPDE/Track day events are going to be going on all weekend with NASA FL in the background. Our team will be participating in the wheel to wheel racing with our Spec Miata race cars, and 13Thumper is going to be running the actual meet-up and activities within. My team is more than happy to throw an after party after the races end with food and drink and whatever else we can offer in a party.

This is a pretty open opportunity for us, we have a really great venue to hold this at and a really generous and open host in NASA Florida. Please let us know if there is something that you'd like to see in this meet and we'll look into including it. We're working on securing sponsors and participants to provide prizes for us or donations so we can have some nice giveaways like shirts and stickers. 5X Racing is going to try to provide as much as possible, but help from anybody will be even better so we can add to whatever we can offer.

And, we can always use volunteer help from people that are interested in making this meet a bigger and better thing. So, if you're looking to get involved, please let me or Thumper know so we can include you in the planning process.

Alright! Let's see what we can cook up with this and if we can get a bunch of Miata's out at Sebring in October! It's a great picture spot and if you like road racing, a great opportunity to get up close and personal with Sebring Raceway and the cars competing. Hey, and if you're brave enough, you can even get out on the track yourself in your Miata! (more details on this to come)

Thanks and I hope you guys take advantage of this fall time meet-up opportunity!

Phil! Post up a teaser pic from the Chumpcar race for me, please!

I'll be there running DE3 both days if I don't break the car AND if I finish putting it back together before then. I think Hyperdrive/DE1 and possibly DE2 are full at this point.

Did somebody invite the CR clown that spun his car off track and into the grass during the lunchtime parade lap last year? He's got mad skillz yo.

He tried to invite himself on the local forum. I flamed the **** out of him, like a boss.

Unfortunately, I've got a prior engagement so I won't be able to make it to that event. It sounds like a pretty good value amd I definitely need to hit up Sebring at least once.

Yay! Thanks for the pics. I think I ruined my Simpson racing shoes getting them so wet.

ha yeah my suit smells like wet dog, I'll have to get it dry cleaned before next weekend.

I should have the pics with me at the NASA event, so I can give them to you then. I'm installing the xp8s and adjusting my seat this weekend. Good luck putting your trubo back together!

200 miles away, and yet SO far! I wish I could be there.... I've been trying to get into these weekend events, but it's really hit or miss on my schedule. I will definitely be at the next one... driving or not!

A certain friend of mine might have secured a car from a car rental establishment.
