Default Round 2, 2015 Miata Challenge is coming February 22!











Miata Challenge round #2-Autoclub Speedway in Fontana!

*February 22, Sunday*


The first rule of Miata Challenge: Itís not Fight Club.
Who will be Jeff Gordon and who will be Danica Patrick this year?
Will too many pit shenanigans get to Emilio this year (we can hope!)? Will Sonny narrowly miss crashing the razor driftorito into the trash can again this year?


Itís safe! Really.
Everyone is going the same direction, 99% of the time. Or 90%.
Itís cheap!
Have you seen your insurance increase after a ticket or three? Or the cost of tickets now with any supplemental fees!?
Itís fun!
How can it not be? Often we do night before bbqís where we grill beef and drink good craft beers (thereís rumor to be bourbon at select events!).
Driving the cars at your limit is beyond fun! Bring a spouse, bring a friend, give each other joy rides (in the cars).
Heck, Iíll give you a joy ride but wonít guarantee actually being fast, lol.


Round 2 is Autoclub Speedway in Fontana. You'll be like Danica... Or youíll be fast here, so fast. And smooth, like buttah.
A lovely track-2.81 miles and 21 turns of NASCAR goodness, mostly.
This is really one of the best facilities you'll find. The interior sections are well suited to Miatas. The 14 degree banked turns and 11 degree banked front straight are great places to catch up on your reading...if the sound of the Corvettes flying by don't distract you. Not to worry though as by turn 3 they'll be pointing you by again, lol.
Register here!
Miata Challenge registration-Round 2




There are 4 classes:
-Street, aka Iím pretty stock and I think I have a helmet somewhere.
-Modified, aka I think I like this and want more.
-Super-Modified, aka donít tell my wife what Iíve done to the car!
-Unlimited, aka thereís a Miata under there somewhere.
Link to rules:
Rules & Classing

Also a very active Miata Challenge Facebook group where you can ask any rules, class, build, party questions can be found here:
Miata Challenge Facebook page
Also conveniently on that Facebook page is a link to an Excel spreadsheet for you to fill out that tells you what class you'd be in.
Good resource to have.

*my philanthropy is limited to throwing my money at good beer and beef steaks. That occurs at the track the night before when we bbq.

And we WILL be BBQing at the track the night before. You can camp there or sleep in a local hotel but dont miss the festivities...

I'll be there.

Is there a miata challenge specific run group?

Cool!

No specific run group. Register like you would for any trackday. In addition during online registration check off that you'll participate in Mosta Challenge and check for timing transponder rental (unless you have your own).
When checking in the morning of event let them know again if they don't already have it listed so you can fill out the points form. Good idea to download the excel file from link in original post so you can bring that.
You will be timed in whatever run group you're in. You're timed all day and your best time (except from first session) counts. There may be other Miata from various classes in your group.
That's it.

BJ's Pizza in lieu of traditional BBQ. Camping possible if we pay for security as we did last year. Without the BBQ, there isn't much incentive to camp though.
