    What a wonderful video, pix and just a great day in general……these so-called “parade” laps were really anything but……not what we were used to from days of yore….this really gave you the feeling of a race track especially for those of us who  have never personally driven behind the wheel in an actual race…..a really fun and good time was had by all and something I believe LimeRock will continue…….

    Good seeing everyone at the inaugural MiataCon.  Hoping that it gets more traction if they decide to do this again next year.

    Nutmeg Club hangout during the event!

    Winner of Group1 – Massimo is only 16yrs old!

    Also note the new GMX-5 Brembo Big Brake kit.  You can buy most GMX-5 competition parts from Mazda Motorsports.

    I have no doubt that this event will happen again next year.  I have already swapped messages with one of the LRP VP…Walt Irvine

    He stopped in our campsite a couple times over the weekend…Brought two Mazda Corporate guys…and caught me while he was test driving an ND on Friday morning…he just commented that he just might need a NMC application…lol!!

    Soi I gave him the link

    I just had a very nice conversation with Walter irvine, a Lime Rock VP…he wanted to thank me and our Clubmembers for how things went at MiataCopn .  I shared a link to our website with him and he was really impressed with the way folks were interacting about MiataCon. the NEWS blurb that Peter wrote with the pics and the video was passed along to other LRP people also.  He REALLY liked that.  hats off to peter for that and keith for doing that video.  A lot of eyes well outside of our Club say that.

    the pics I had shared of the pumpkins that Abby Wurtman carved and brought to the track went all the way to Mazda Corporate in California!!

     

    thank you again to everyone that took the time to come to MiataCon.  and here’s one more thing…it is already on the LRP schedule for next year!!

    Well I had a fantastic time and am already looking forward to next year. My only regret is not being able to spend as much time there as I wanted. Next year I’ll plan to stay the whole weekend.
    Maybe we can do more next year with more notice. We could set up an official club area in the paddock, do something for a local charity, organize a cornhole tourney or even a little gymkhana course? Just throwing out ideas. I noticed a lot of people left after the parade laps, maybe something to keep them around and participating. More food trucks/vendors would be awesome too. And 2 days of MiataX 😂

    Excellent article! Brings back memories of a fantastic day we all celebrated our Miata’s and will help me get thought the long, wet, cold miserable days of Winter 🙁 . Can’t wait till spring and next year’s MiataCon 🙂
