NASA put on another awesome event for Spec Miata racers. This weekend was absolutely perfect weather and the racing was close and clean. A big thanks to all SM drivers for a completely clean race on Sunday and an almost clean race on Saturday. With 27 cars in the field, I think that is a great accomplishment.

Mark Bennett, in his Race Engineering powered SM, preatty much dominated the time sheets. He qualified on the pole both days and won both races handily. It is obvious that the rest of us have a little more work to do to catch Mark. Last years OH/IN Nasa Champ, Dennis Joynt, in his Winning Formula SM, took 2nd place both days.

See the results here:
Saturday:

Sunday:
http://www.mylaps.com/results/newResults.jsp?id=507571

Some other drivers who really picked it up this weekend are: Rick Deerwester, Eric Meyer, Dave Watts. These guys all had personal best lap times this weekend and will be contenders this year.

Thanks Everyone,

Thanks for the compliment. It was great fun dicing with you yesterday. I only wish that the Honda's could have stayed out of trouble so that we would have run a few more hot race laps.

Spectacular weekend. Team D-Squared Racing (Deb and Denny) had a flippin blast. NASA did an awesome job conducting the event. Only thing that could make it better would be a SM only group (I can dream, can't I?) Bennett turned a 1:43.496 in qualifying. Does anyone know if that's a pro-course track record? GreatLakes website's pdf file for records won't open.

Anywho, great to see all our buds, and great to be back in the car and racing after a long miserable winter.

Denny [thumbsup]

Bravo NASA! I must say that the relaxed atmosphere yet structured schedule made for a smooth event. The great weather did not hurt either! Thanks to Greg for being the Series Director and Shane for being Tech Guru.

I had a great time on track. It was amazing how much I learned about the car and the track after 3 years. If you want to know the definition of "bad push" or "massive understeer" look for some video of Slattery from Saturday. I've seen school buses turn sharper. [Eek!]

I was great seeing all the old faces, and learning a few new ones. I plan on making most, in not all, the Mid-Ohio NASA events. And I am thinking about Grattan later this year... [scratchchin]

Denny,

1:44.7 (Tony Coello) was the best lap time on the Pro course from the Pro-Miata Cup years.

Thanks to all of our customers and friends.

Next race we want "Carbotech Danny" to race, that would be BIG.

What did Bennett run during the race, or who had fast lap and what was it?

Bobby T., the last time I was on the track with Bennett he needed my help getting past an ITA Miata (the ole squeeze pick maneuver)! [yep] [Big Grin] [Razz]

If Mellman ran a 1:44.7 then Bennett's 1:43.4 is believable. [Big Grin] [duck] That makes me think someone can run a 1:42.9 in the right conditions!

Alright, Mark Bennett holds the new Mid-Ohio track record on the Pro-course at a 1:44.1 for Spec Miata. Correct? Congrats Mark!

Hey Danny, I thought I was the smart a$$!
Mark ran 1.43xx in practice on a different surface he hasn't run on before...1.42xx is possible!

Record shmecord, they repaved the place, whoopie. [Roll Eyes]

A cool sunny day, a draft/tailwind, and a Pro-built car with a Pro driver, and 41s are in the bag! [Eek!]

I must say, NASA ran a *topnotch* event.

I hate roo-rah website commercialism, but for anyone that actually cares, it is certainly true that Race Engineering motors, Backstreet Performance Dynojet tuning, Carbotech brake pads, and SafeRacer are a big part of my race program.

Congratulations to Waldo Watts for raising his game at Mid Ohio and entering his FIFTH season on ORIGINAL PAINT AND SHEETMETAL. (And original everything else that hasn't broken or fallen off) [Smash] [duck]

I would have had my original motor in it if it wasn't for you blowing it up Mark!! [Razz] [flamed] (I guess I should thank you, huh?)

I really appriciated Mellman's comment of "How can you be a second and a half faster than me in THAT thing!?" Hint: CRX's make GREAT drafting partners (see picture): THANKS TO MARKUS

NASA didn't raise the weight on the 1.6s, so the 1.6 times should still be at 2300#.

Hello Mr B, is the surface repaved AGAIN after last year when we raced? If comparing my times from last fall, I would have been better served staying at home working on needlepoint.....needle point I hear is pretty boring.

Take into consideration that this was the "Pro" course without the Bus Stop. Since I was there last, the inside curbs were ground down and the Keyhole was ground down on the inside line (or paved?).

Hi David, the course was modified already for the race there last fall, and we were more than 2 seconds a lap slower running at the front. That was the Pro course, but maybe they repaved it again.

My needlepoint has improved immensley with coated lightweight needles and expensive blueprinted textiles!

Nice racing Watts, and don't take any crap from Bennett. Bennett has been trying to hold you back for years (remember the Runoffs side slap?). Wasn't Bennett the one who blew up your motor???

Nowicki, if you study the Mid Ohio laptime history a little more, I think you'll find some oranges among your apples.

The truth is out there [Wink] ... but even Nosaj Omared might not know that 42s, 43s and 44s were all seen two years ago on the short course.

Either the Sky isn't falling, or it already fell long ago. So, too, SM.

The fruits of our labor are the love of apples and oranges together, so say the Omared wise one. Apples today and Oranges tomorrow yield dessert without toppings.

Fast Times at Mid Ohi were laid down by Niki a few years back, but I believe the surface was the old apple, or was it the orange. Some call it Lemon, but who am I to ponder the existance ot the Nosaj tree that grew far from the gravitational path of the parsed fruit.

It is raining today, maybe even at MO, so therefore would you not say the sky is falling yourself?

Erstwhile question remains unanswered.

Steve, Steve, Steve...while you may not be breaking any SPECIFIC rule, you are not following the "intent" of the needlepoint hobby. If you like to use modified or suped-up equipment, maybe cross-stitching is more your style. We will file protest paperwork at the annual Quilt-Offs (TM) if you show up with such.

I want to thank NASA (Dave)and everyone else who attended the Mid-Ohio race.. I had a great time .. Special thanks to Mike W. of the "Winning Formula" for turning/tuning a 2352lbs. 114hp sm into a competative car. To quote Mr. Bennett.. "Lap times, Shmap times" .. if I recall you cant win a race with "ONE" fast lap..

Thank You Steve..

I would have to say .. If Mr. Bennett and the Dear Mr. Schultz are running the Race Engineering Motors .. Im leaning heavey that way ..

My question .. Money aside .. if I purchase a Race Engineering "Pro Motor" ..Do I get the same quality and performance as Mr. Bennetts Power Plant.. I understand that there is always some variances to any built performance motor, but how big is the gap between a "Pro Motor" for the purchasing public and the "Ultra Pro Motor" that simply is not for sale..

Mr. Thorton .. Thanks for your reply . We all know that there are several Motor Builders to choose from. As a business owner myself unerstanding quality and service. Based on your proven quality and equally important, the racers (Mr. M. Bennett / Mr. G. Schultz)you have chosen to represent your company is why I will choose a Race Engineering Motor.

Dennis,
I'm sure all the motor builders build a fine product but Bob goes that extra yard to help after the sale. I run his motor too!

I have heard too many horror stories of customers shelling out 7k and getting a motor that has only 116 or 117 Hp and is unreliable. I have heard ONLY RAVE replies from Race Engineering customers. How many Hp's can be expected from a Race Engineering Pro Motor. with Mike W. of "WINNING FORMULA" tuning the car, adding a few more ponies from my current 114hp seems to be my next step to being competitive across the board.

I'd be willing to bet most "pro motors" come to you at about the same HP. You have to tune on a dyno to get the full potential from the motor. Change timing, change exhaust,change plugs, different brand gas, etc...
In my experience my RE motor make hp/tq before my old "pro motors". Just my .02
