Here's your chance to give autocross a try without driving all the way to Brooksville! We'll be at Tampa Bay Downs on May 9th.

Registration for this event is open until May 6. Remember, pre-registration is required for all drivers.

This event is open to all licensed drivers. Novices and first timers are welcome, so if you've not done this before, this is the perfect opportunity to bring your Miata out for some fun!

Want to come out and watch, or bring friends and family out to watch? No problem! Tampa Bay Downs is great for that, they can hang out under the shade trees in "Raceway Park", they don't have to register or even sign in to be there.

No excuses, no experience required, what the hell are you waiting for???

Registration and complete event info here:
Get Registered!

Bringing out the new MazdaSpeed 3 for this one!
Not sure what class to register it in? everything is stock from what i can tell, Upgraded induction system. Sway bar on the rear but not the front. SO? doesn't really matter. Just bringing it out to have fun with it and see what she can do. :mrgreen:

S4 as long as the upgraded induction didn't include a fuel or computer upgrade. Or you could run in FN for fun.

Make up your mind, is it modded to hell, or is it stock? :)

Springs and engine tuning take it out of stock.

^ That was what I was told be a be the salesman at the dealer i bought it from In FT Myers. Had it in for a warranty trans seal leak and the tech beat the drive shaft to hell and damaged the half shaft and hub and they tried to say i did it when they pulled the wheel off. LOL
it was towed to Ferman Mazda and they shop finally relented and admitted guilt and it was fixed. The master tech at Mazda told me it was stock with upgraded induction (Cobb), exhaust and was tuned. and he said the H&R springs where stock height, doesn't look stock but I have yet to be next to another speed 3 either. So I really don't know what i have. I know its fast and handles well. Thus I dont know what class it should be in if i decide to autocross the car regularly. so I take what master tech said over the salesman.
So I am hoping i can have some one who knows turbo's better than me tell me what i have...

Pretty much said the same thing, sounds like. The car is "tuned", which means somebody has monkeyed with the fueling. That's not allowed in FAST stock. The springs are not stock. That's not allowed in FAST stock. It's a Mod car as far as we're concerned. M2, to be exact.

Will be great to see you out there, Brian!

RS-3's are awesome, but I'll warn you... TBD is not the grippiest site. Lots of sand blown over from the horse track.

Trying to limp through the rest of the season without buying 4 more tires! Corded one of the fronts at the last event.
