Checkers for Kicera, Leverone at final Hoosier Super Tour

Leverone, Bergstein and Mills working the draft. Wow, there’s tight racing on the track and in the points!¬† The weekend of June 22-24 found us at Watkins Glen for the final pre-Runoffs Hoosier Super Tour. The Glen is one of our favorite tracks, so it was no surprise that the Flatout Compound was jammed: Company president Nick Leverone raced, as did Tyler Kicera, Hugh McHaffie, Craig McHaffie, Amy Mills, Whitfield Gregg, and Lance Bergstein. Crewmen Adam Desrosiers and Cory Bentley did their usual sterling job, with a boost from old friend (and part of the original Flatout gang) Forrest... Read More >

Summer rolls along – Cup testing, Road America!

With our next Global MX-5 Cup race coming up in July, FOM hotshoes Jesse Schmidt and Matt Koskinen (71) recently squeezed in a full day of testing at Palmer Motorsports Park (we hasten to add that this particular pic was shot previously at Barber Motorsports Park). The guys reported that the cars were on rails, and the lap times proved it! A promising sign for that late July date at Mid-Ohio. Meanwhile, we had a terrific contingent at Road America in Wisconsin, as Arrive & Drivers Amy Mills and Whit Greg; Tyler Kicera; and a cast of thousands descended... Read More >

Summer is here – full speed ahead!

Memorial Day Weekend found Team Flatout at one of our favorite venues: New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where many FOM drivers got their start and we have thousands of collective laps under our belts. So we couldn’t help but reminisce a bit, especially when it turned out all four of us old-timers showed up to crew or just hang out. Right to left, that’s Nick Leverone, Andy Bettencourt, Adam Desrosiers, and Steve Ulfelder. Mount Rushmore we ain’t, but it sure was good to see everybody! With the late-May weekend ushering in summer, it was also useful to glance at the... Read More >

Wherever, whatever – we’ve got you covered!

We were looking over our most recent forays to various tracks, as well as our upcoming schedule¬†and some of our alums’ accomplishments, and it prompted this thought: Whether you’re just starting out or looking to become a professional sports car racer, Flatout has you covered! In less than a month, we prepped, transported, and crewed for a pair of bigtime Mazda Global MX-5 Cup races. We hit SCCA Regional, Double Major, and Hoosier Super Tours up and down the east coast. And this past weekend, we were at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, doing one of our favorite things: Helping... Read More >

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 >
