Cincinnati Region SCCA hosted 2016 PDX and IT*Spectacular at MidOhio Sports Car Course.
It wasn’t a perfect weather, but we didn’t get rained on neither PDX or the race time, so all in all, it was a great weekend.
This was my second PDX, and my first time driving Miata on a track. I brought my 92 Watermelon instead of my 99 Silver. I probably wasn’t a slowest car on the course, but wasn’t far off from it neither…
Car handled great, and nothing broke! Unlike my first year when I was in RX-8, I was passed by pretty much everyone, and back straight speed was barely breaking 100mph mark, but the driving Miata was definitely more rewarding than RX-8. Every single small mistake is reflected right away at the next corner exit, but when I do it right, I could totally see the reward.
Since owe had 4 20 min sessions, I decided to take a new, larger SD Card, and that was a mistake… even though the camera only asks for class 10 card, the new class 10, 64GB card was probably too slow, and most of the video were stopped after 5-10 minutes… now I’m ordering another big disk with hopefully with faster speed…
Out of a few videos I got, my best run was 1’58” around the track. It was only my first lap on my last heat, and I had a pretty good run on that heat, so I’m guessing I did a little better than 1’58”, but well.. no video…
Anyhow, Thanks for everyone who helped me on the track, especially Brooks and Rick for giving me a great instructions, and Chase for everything else!
