Miata Challenge 2011 – Round 1 (SEASON OPENER): Buttonwillow (1/30/2011)

Please join the discussions about this event and the upcoming 2011 series on the official Miata Challenge forums! This will be the easiest way to timely answer your questions and address concerns about the series. Feel free to pick our brains and ask lots of questions about your interest in the series there.


A new year, new season. Zero points, round one. 2011 Miata Challenge starts SUNDAY, Jan. 30th. I don't need to say anymore. Well, but maybe one thing… This is a VERY POPULAR TRACK for track-goers and rack days at this track usually sells out, so it’s important to REGISTER ASAP TO AVOID NOT GETTING IN!!

Round 1 registration link: SUNDAY, January 30th
(Note: TRANSPONDERS ARE REQUIRED. Please order one during online registration.)

2011 Rules and Regulations link: PLEASE READ
It is the competitor’s responsibility to read and understand these rules in their entirety OR RISK BEING DISQUALIFIED!


And in case you are wondering about the ending of the 2010 season and the season finale...

[EDIT: 1/12] Season prizes and per event prizes are TBD for the 2011 season pending discussions with sponsors and Speed Ventures about a new attendance-based contingency system for winners. STAY TUNED for updates!!

A photographer for putting up photo on the Miata Challenge website would be nice.

Im probably going to be coming out with my dad.We will probably bring the expedition so I can bring tools/ jacks n stuff just incase some of you Cr guys need a support vehicle. Im defiantly not a pro photographer but I just purchased a sweet new camera that im hoping will arrive any day now. It would be a great place to test it out.

just registered in green . hope its still available.

Vagaxt . help me get up to speed for a session? so you can have a battle.
I'd be happy to, just follow me around for the 1st green session. Anyone else is welcome for a ride or following us in green group.

BTW, with the optimal weather conditions of no wind, 60degF with sunlight, I predict the following for the winning times:

Unlimited: 1:55.xxx
Modified: 2:03.xxx
Street: 2:09.xxx

My camera still hasn't come yet :( Hopefully it will come in time or ill be stuck with my old camera.
In specific are there any tools or items I should bring that would be helpful or potentially helpful. As a non-driver are the pits accessible so that I could help some people out if they need? I was just thinking the obvious ( jack / stands , sockets, ratchets and tq wrenches)
Whoever is going from here just speak up before hand so I can make sure to get pictures of your car :)

Urban, 949Racing and I will be there. There are others as well, but on other forums.

Maybe spare fluids like coolant, oil and water (distiled).

Pits are open to everyone and is the only place for everyone to be, aside from the store and cafe.

No conclusion for that, IMO. The lap times at ACS are inconsistant to compare, even between different track days for the same weather, track conditions, driver and car. This is because ACS has cones to mark the course and rarely are replaced in the intended locations when they are knocked down.
