    Iim 78 soon to be 79, I say to old now because I know my reaction time is slowing down and confidence is not the same to mange my car the way I use to enjoy driving. The fun for me is to test my skills and the challenge of a Hillclimb. So twisty roads is still enjoyable.

    Re: Brad's Miata at Chasing the Dragon Hillclimb 2019

    We have the dates for next year's event. It is Aug 15/16 (the weekend after Miatas at the Gap, if anyone wants to stretch out a vacation). This hillclimb is only about 10 miles from Tail of the Dragon. I am absolutely hooked. I have at least four friends in Miatas running, next year. Plus, my son-in-law's WRX, a friend in a quick BRZ, and another friend in an LS3 RX8. Should be very fun in the "Street Unlimited" class, next year.

    '93 (Red no more). 15x10, Xida CS, Torsen, Carbotech, Racing Beat, Enthuza, Rotrex C30-74, Precision FMIC, Tial, Skunk2, Haltech, Momo, Hard Dog, LanceSpeed, Blackbird Fabworx, etc.

    That sounds like unbelievable fun. I take it the road is officially closed to traffic for the event? Sorry if that’s a dumb question.

    Sorry for the late reply. Yes, the road is closed for the event. It takes place on a dead-end road, in the state forest, so through traffic is not an issue. The close the road at the bottom, and we basically have it all for paddock/pits, course, and turn around at the top.

    You absolutely should. Remember, my car was one of the fastest cars there. Lots of people run without my power level. There were 12 other Miatas entered.

    Lots of different classes. I'm guessing most of you have cars that would run in CSP? Looks like the CSP winner was about 15 seconds off my time (power helps). So, that's pretty much where your goal would be, if you were looking for a win. I 3.5 seconds behind the winner in my class, and knew going in that was the best I could hope for. So, I set a target time, and worked to achieve that, and it just happened that it was a trophy position. Here is the complete overall results from this year.

    MX-5 Miatas 2nd and 3rd, you going to run again? You could be 1st, I bet you extract 2.5 seconds and score 1st Place
