Fantastic in-car – Kicera’s run from 9th to the podium

So you want to run up front in Spec Miata, eh? Study up. This is Virginia International Raceway, April 15, 2018. It’s terrific in-car footage, and not just because hotshoe Tyler Kicera passes a bunch of the nation’s top amateur racers on his way to the checkers. What we love is Tyler’s helmet cam, which lets you know exactly what the driver sees. Enjoy! Read More >

It’s funny the way the mind works. The picture you see here – of hotshoe Tyler Kicera following his 2017 Hoosier Super Tour sweep at VIR – reminded us that this second weekend in April, we’ll be at two southern tracks, including VIR again, supporting Tyler as he defends that sweep. (The other track, BTW, is Summit Point.) And that, in turn, reminded us that the following weekend, we’ll be back on our New England stomping grounds at Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway. We’re back to Summit the following weekend, but here’s the point: Racing season is finally hitting the northeast!... Read More >

Split weekend: Mills nabs 2 podiums at NOLA; Koskinen, Kicera practice for Cup season

We were all over the place the first weekend in March! One crew made for New Orleans’ NOLA Motorsports Park for a super-competitive SCCA Hoosier Super Tour. Plenty of renters and arrive-and-drivers kept us busy; hotshoe Amy Mills highlighted the event with a pair of podium finishes in the STL class. Meanwhile we were also at Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama, where the Mazda Global MX-5 Cup crowd held a test-and-tune weekend. Matt Koskinen and┬áTyler Kicera┬ádid a great job dialing in their rides (that’s Matt’s gorgeous number 71 below). Can’t wait to return to Barber next month for some... Read More >
