Default Texas Miata Challenge at MSR Houston

Lessons learned:
I really needed the lens hood on the long lens. I forgot to bring it.
It would've been nice if I zoomed out more to catch the side profile of cars as those make better signature pics.
UV filter to cut down on the haze?

Holy negative camber on that red #7

So what is the story with the "Blowtus"? Supercharged Elise? It looks like it is a hard core race prepped car.

Nice pics. I think the problem with fancy pants is a master cylinder that's bad. Gonna find out for sure soon. I did manage a 2:03.54 leaving it in 3rd.

Pauls mazdaspeed had a camera, but the mount was loose and he says the noise is really bad because of it.
