Getting ready for Runoffs!

Our busy racing season continues, and as usual, we’re supporting drivers with all sorts of goals. Some are angling for regional points championships, some are getting started by renting whenever they get a chance – and plenty are just having fun. Naturally, though, many of our clients build their season around the SCCA’s Big Dance: the Runoffs, which will be held at Virginia International Raceway. VIR is one of our favorite tracks.

We just had to share some in-car footage from June 22’s Spec Miata Hoosier Super Tour race at Watkins Glen. Flatout’s Tyler Kicera, one of the nation’s top SM pilots, slugged it out for 28 minutes with fellow star drivers Elivan Goulart and Danny Steyn. Hard, clean, skilled racing from green to checkers. Hate to drop in a spoiler, but in the end it was Elivan in front – with the top 3 separated by 0.063 seconds! Also: If you can’t watch the full half-hour, start at the 23-minute mark to watch the last couple of pulse-pounding, lead-swapping laps! Read More >
