Track records and busy days!

With the season in full swing, we’ve got an awful lot on our plates!

First, we’re happy to say that more and more street cars are coming into our shop for maintenance and high-performance parts. Many are Miatas, but we work on all cool cars. To learn more and make an appointment, contact us.

Also, it’s high time to note that the 1999 rotary-powered Miata we designed and built for Jon Farbman is one screamin’ hotrod. Jon’s car now holds the following track records in SCCA’s STL class:

Road Atlanta: 1:39.748

Homestead Miami Speedway: 1:35.869

Sebring: 2:29.065

Not too shabby!

Speaking of Road Atlanta, we hit that track March 19-22 for an SCCA Majors race weekend. Clients Max Tullman and Joe Cooley (who runs a T4 Miata) had excellent outings. Company president Nick Leverone ran SM and, in Farbman’s car, STL. He won both STL races and set the track record mentioned above.

Then it was on to Virginia International Raceway for testing and another Majors race April 16-19. Farbman and Tim Estes competed in STL, while Yiannis Tsiounis, Amy Mills, Whit Gregg, and Leverone ran SM. (This was the weekend that featured a much-talked-about SM start in a pile of Speedy-Dry. Oy.) Old friend Jerry Rigoli helped Adam Desrosiers, Leverone, and Jody Leverone crew, while the rest of Team Flatout burned the midnight oil back at the shop to prep enduro cars. By the way, Jody is now doing expert at-track catering for our clients – as if you needed another reason to run with Flatout Motorsports!

From VIR we boogied north to New Jersey Motorsports Park for a 12-hour enduro on April 24-25. Will Fox, James Fox, and Mark Breuers drove our number 90 rental and were leading comfortably until a minor mechanical glitch relegated them to third place. Steve Tullman and Max Tullman drove another Flatout car and were leading with 5 laps to go but needed a splash of fuel; they ended up second to our friends Elivan Goulart and Nai Nan Ko. Great race, guys! The third Flatout entry was driven by Neal and Jim Walker. They came in fourth after an outstanding, consistent race. Finally, yet another of our Miatas was rented by Eric Thompson, Sam Wilkinson, and Michael Hartberger, who fell victim to an unfortunate mechanical.

The massive crew that weekend needs to be thanked. Company employees Seamus Erskine, Rob Newton, Andrew Burke, Nick, Adam, and Jody Leverone were supported by Flatout Friends Alex Negron, Jerry Rigoli, James McElroy, Yvette Tenorio, Beans Ustin, and Doug Fisher. It takes a village, and our pit stops were blindingly fast!

From April 30 to May 3 we were at Summit Point for yet another Majors tilt. Mills, Gregg, hotshoe Danny Steyn, and Nick all drove in Spec Miata. Estes ran STL in his RX-7 and notched a great win on Saturday. Leverone grabbed a pair of Top Fives, while Danny won on Sunday after a fierce battle!

What’s next? More more more, we’re happy to say: More racing, more street-car work, and more great events to come!

Look who's in Road & Track!

Well that's pretty cool. The May issue of Road & Track includes an excellent article on the Spec Miata juggernaut - and a Flatout Miata is not only featured in the accompanying photo, but is leading the angry swarm!

For the record, that's company president Nick Leverone hustling the car, and he's a pretty fair wheel man. But keep in mind that you can rent this very Miata, or any in our highly competitive fleet, just by contacting us
