It turns out: Mazda knows what they're doing. Even more-so, Mazdaspeed. A few months ago I picked up a 2006 MX-5 from a friend who'd done some work to it. He put the Mazdaspeed suspension (eibach springs, tokiko springs and sway bars), some Enkei RPF1 17x9 wheels with 235 wide Nitto NT-05 tires, and the AWR Racing roll bar in.

After seeing some bad wrecks at my previous track days, I decided that safety was going to be my top priority. I added a MOMO Super Cup racing seat and a SCHROTH Profi 3H 6-point racing harness. I also picked up a Necksgen head and neck restraint.

So then it was time to hit the track! Streets of Willow Springs - at night!

Racing at night is equal parts terrifying and exhilarating. My best time was 1:36:6, with definitely more to give!
