This is super neat, ’cause I’ve actually contacted Yoav a few months ago about my car and my up-coming trip to Laguna Seca for the 25th Miata Anniversary event organize by Mazda and various Miata community big names. My car might not be a vintage/classic car (1997 year model, but still first generation) that fits most of Petrolicious profiles. My mentor and I have spent numerous hours and resources to refine its performance on the track up ’til this day. Much like some of the featured cars like Mr. Jack Olsen’s physics bending 911 and Mr. Jason Len’s one of a kind E-type Lightweight, I see myself continuously building and developing the Miata while still keeping some of the most essential attributes of its origin – a lightweight, naturally aspirated FR machine, with intuitive handling characteristics. In preparation of the Laguna trip, I actually just came back from a back-to-back lapping weekend at Ridge Motorsports park in Shelton, Washington. If you guys feel interested to see how it performs, here’s a video of one of the many sessions:

I really hope to share this amazing trip in September with you guys and fellow petroheads who visit the site! If it doesn’t work out, I’ll still be delighted to perhaps chill with you guys there if any of you have the time. Mazda promises to make it a memorable for all attendees. Cheers!

If only I’d known a couple years back. I couldve written quite the story on my 11k Scandinavia roadtrip.
