As a corner worker, I can definitely say that over 75% of the "metal to metal" incidents reported to race control involve at least one if not multiple Miata's.

At least they keep us corner workers busy. :D

Dead on the bullseye! If you love your car, then drive it and enjoy. If you love to drive, then get a car to race...and be prepared to replace most or all of it at regular intervals! From bumper to bumper it's a "wear item" for your addiction to speed.

No wonder the old saying is true: "If you want to make a small fortune in racing, start with a large one..."
