Here is one of me trying to keep up with everyone leaving the lot...its my serious face



Here is a Murcielago going 170+

Here are people pulling in and leaving the first spot. My car can be seen at 1:10 and 8:45

And a cayman that couldn't stay on pavement



Also through the course of the day, I saw a newer Saleen Mustang (tuned of course) destroy a GTR on the highway. A Twin Turbo Gallardo blew the motor on the highway. Police stopped traffic on the highway completely, twice (no tickets were given out BTW).

Ok, I like pictures. However, with this next statement I mean ABSOLUTELY no offense, but IMO, your car doesn't really belong with exotics. Granted, Corvettes, Mustangs etc aren't exotics either but a Miata, Mazdaspeed or not, does not belong. Now like I said, I mean absolutely no offense.

I rly like the pictures though. And I hope the owner of that Cayman wasn't injured...

It deosnt, and no offence taken cause I know that, but I didn't pay for the event, or gas, or tolls, or even food. A friend of mine who does photo and video had to do footage of the event and asked me last minute if I wanted to go because he needed a camera car (you can see him in my car with the camera in post 4). It was definately well worth it. Car surprised a few people too. When we were headed to Champion Motors in NY the stupid nav he brought was acting up and all of a sudden 2 lambos, a cayman, and m3 come blowing by me so I step on it to follow them. Ended up having some pre-run fun, and when we got to the first spot the guy with the m3 was like "that's just unnatural for a miata, me and my son were watching you and wondering how the hell is it going so fast"
