Such an exciting weekend, I still get a rush thinking about the races!

And what a crazy rollercoaster these races were
I got a rocket start in the first one, running down Alex and Emilio to take P1 into the first corner, lead the race for a couple laps, got passed by Alex, did the best I can to stay in P2 with Crusher filling up my mirrors.
Got a little love tap that realigned one of my rear wheels and dropped from P2 to P6 within roughly 30 seconds consisting of a spinout followed by driving off in the next corner.
Relearn the new alignment for a couple of laps and back to work, got by Ed and with half lap to go, Sonny who was in P4 and had a good gap spun out his car, squeezed by him and raced him to the checkered including a drag race and a photo finish.

Race 2 I had a bad start and just couldn't find the groove for most of the race.
I blame the BBQ from the night before for that

Race 3 I pulled another rocket start and had P1 into T1, which unfortunately I couldn't really see because of my visor being completely fogged up, ended up taking a wide line to be on the safe side because I couldn't see anything in my mirrors and didn't know who was where.
Dropped to P4 and ended up chasing William for the next few laps.
Got by William right after taking the white flag, pulled a good block on Aaron that followed me into the pass on William and ended up with P3.
Would have placed better in this one if I could see anything after the start, but had a great time in the heat of the battle

Erik Bruner got a bunch of awesome shots (as usual), here are some:

Since creampuff is racing in full aero gear, I assume the new regulations are starting with 2014?

Creampuff is equalized by being down on power and a slightly slower tire. We won't be racing for points until 2014 at which time Moti will have to start at the back and race for fun only.

As mentioned in the OP, we're allowing any Miata in any trim for the remainder of 2013. Just to get things rolling.

At the end of the day, the lap times recorded in the race tell the story -


Everyone is right about equal, Alex is a bit more equal and Emilio is too equal and will be suspended from future races if he keeps posting illegal lap times

Should have the OEM rebuilt head in Crusher by next race. Then I can have normal shift points. At that point we can easily do small rev limit caps or Spec Miata restrictors to cap Crusher to equalize things. We should spend a bit more time going over data and video with all the drivers too.

Just to be clear, I was just joking a bit.
The races were fantastic and we all had a great time, I don't think anyone felt that anyone else had any unfair advantage due to the car spec being different and at the end of the day the results seem to agree with that.

Cheers!

Default Standing start in car

Sundays standing start Supersprint (4 laps).
I made a few mistakes, but smaller ones than everyone else and inherited the lead. Fun stuff.

I was wondering is the stock long block rule really necessary?
With max power cap and powerband cap, could engine with different pistons run for points?

example) someone who built their engine for turbo with 8.6 compression ratio pistons.

Our goal is to keep costs down. Stock engines that meet the power cap does that.

Lower compression is no advantage. We'll have some leeway for cars that already have engines. That's what the Power Area rule is for. But don't overthink it, if you are running our local series and have not built an engine yet, keep it simple. Heavy valve springs, forged rods for over rev protection, ACL race bearings. Otherwise stock.
