Mazda Miata Racing

This spring, my father and I, took a 2.5 day autocross class that introduced us to performance driving skills and techniques. This included skidpad, slalom, "hands course", kidney bean course, and emergency steering/land change. After learning these basic skills, we took our knowledge to a course. This autocross course had many turns, slalom sections, and rarely exceeded 50 mph. It was very technical in nature and forced you to find the best lines. This is probably only the start for future racing.
