Default Overheating, inconsistent fans HELP!!

Had another track day Monday and really need to know if its Msq or something else I need to be looking at for a solution.
The temp goes up and up (250) and the fans don't come in. If I stop the car, turn off the ignition and restart the car the fans come in and stay in for the rest of the session keeping it around 210.
If I go back in the pits, turn off go out again then the same cycle happens.
So literally ever other run, I have to stop once hot, turn off / on then go back out again.
What controls the fans? The Msq? The thermostat ? If yes where does it get the reading from, my innovate? Where are the fan / temp control settings in Msq?

It seems that the fan control only activates if I turn on the car when it's already over the temp limit, am I missing something obvious. Thanks Guys

What MS do you have? Who built it? what model year miata do you have?

The MS should be controlling the fan unless you have a 90-93 and haven't removed your thermoswitch. This is something you must configure (correctly, I should add) in software, it should be using the CLT temp reading off the sensor on the back of your head.

His might be activated outside the MS and through his enhanced module, so I'd work with him through email to diagnose and come up with a solution.
