Mazda Motorsports writeup: Jon Farbman’s screamin’ STL Rotary Miata

Great writeup here at Mazda Motorsports discussing one of our favorite cars – Jon Farbman’s gorgeous, supremely engineered (if we say so ourselves) 13B-powered Miata, which is a demon in SCCA’s STL class. In the article, company president Nick Leverone explains some of the challenges around the build, such as the need for a trick oil pan. The tradeoff is an engine (light to begin with) that sits low and way back, making for excellent weight distribution. This car is fast, fully developed – and for sale! To learn more, contact us.

It’s coming, friends, you know it is – and according to the Farmer’s Almanac, it’s going to be a snowy one in the northeast.

As is our tradition, we’ll kick off the Flatout Motorsports Winter Series on Thanksgiving weekend with the Turkey Trot regional at Sebring. Keep an eye on our schedule for more opportunities! You can rent race-winning cars from us to compete in a number of classes, or you can arrange an Arrive & Drive weekend; we bring your car south, we prep it, we provide crew – all you do is fly in and drive!

2 top tens for Leverone at a great Runoffs!

The 2017 SCCA Runoffs are in the books, and what a great event. Before we talk results, how about a hand for the guys shown here – the greatest crew in the world! L to R: Andrew Burke, Kyle Santos, Adam Desrosiers, Nick Leverone, Dave Goulet. Flatout president Leverone had a spectacular week, driving a pair of machines you can rent anytime. Nick notched a strong 10th-place finish in the massive Spec Miata class, then followed with a 6th in STL. Craig McHaffie also broke into the top 10 in STL; he and Nick were the top non-Honda, non-FWD cars in that race. Amy Mills took 21st in STL, Eric Thompson 25th, and Whit Gregg 39th, with Joe Schubert a DNS. Like Leverone, Mills (42nd), Schubert (47th), and Whit Gregg (54th) ran SM. So did Tyler Kicera, who was in the top 5 until a mechanical took him out. Whit also ran T4, finishing 18th! Thompson was a busy man; he competed in STU, with an unfortunate mechanical knocking him out, and in T1, where he notched an excellent 15th. Like all major race weeks, this one had heartaches – one of our cars got hit hard during a test day, for crying out loud – moments of triumph, and lots of laughs. An all-time great event!
