Default My do-over 1990

New here, at long last.

I'm Richard, President of the Wild Rose Miata Club in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I am a long-time Miata community member (Miata mailing list pre-dating Miata.net, Miata.net forum, etc...).

As the owner of a FM turbo'd 1990 and a FM S/C'd 2007, I'm going through a do-over, as my 2007 will be sold by March (new owner has paid the deposit, but it's still winter here, so the car's not moving anytime soon), and I just picked up a cherry 1990 Miata and anticipate that I'll be going down the route taken with my first Miata. The focus this time is more of a track car vs. street / autocross car per my first two.

Cheers,

Richard

You are in the right place for track oriented turbo info. We have a good race prep section where many questions you will have will already be answered.

What tracks are in you area?

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks.

Local to my, all of about a 15min drive, is Castrol Raceway and their 2.7km road course. This is a new track, which opened in 2013 to replace the loss of Calgary's Race City Speedway which closed in 2011. Badlands Motorsports Park will soon be developing, which would be about a 3hr drive south, and the Area 27 complex in southern British Columbia which is slated to begin construction this spring will be a 12hr tow.

For now, the focus will be Castrol.

I'm out there approximately 10-15 times a summer for lapping days / time attack, and also plan to make the car available for rent to others while I'm instructing.

I'm looking forward to some of your track video when you can post some up.
