***The fluidity of this situation had deemed a venue change to prestigious Road Atlanta***


I was proposed an idea that I wanted to relay because I thought it was pretty interesting. An Atlanta HPDE organization was looking for a way to create a Miata-only track event. It was suggested that perhaps one way to garner enough interest was to do one a day or two prior to [email protected] weekend.

Plans are fluid and the organizer is extremely reputable, safety-first with an emphasis on fun and friendly atmosphere. It would be held at Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA. T

Now, it is about a 3 hour trip from the Fontana to Road Atlanta. That is actually part of the fun! That would be an excellent primer for a Miata-only track day. :)

The impetus for this event comes from the adventure I had when I did Miatas at Laguna Seca by caravanning up the Pacific Coast Highway with other Miatas from LA to Monterrey. Part of the fun to that event was the drive up. The drive from Fontana to Road Atlanta is far shorter, but no less fun.

The event will have instructors on site, and the intention is to limit the field to four groups; novice, intermediate, intermediate 2, and advanced. Essentially, all you need to bring is your car, yourself, and your excitement.

Cars would be limited to those able to run safely on a track (rollbar) that don't leak, and are in good running condition.

I think if any vendors wanted to come out and demonstrate what their products can do on the track, they would be welcome.

Feedback and interest would be welcome so plans can be made to get it rolling. Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the comments and interest! We are hoping it becomes popular enough that we can make it an annual event. Why should the West Coast guys have all the fun? :). This event will be presented by Jzilla Trackdays. Personally, I think it's pretty exciting. There are maybe 4 or 5 tracks nationwide with the history and prestige of Road Atlanta, it is a sort of hallowed ground for racers and motorsport enthusiasts.

We are still gauging interest. If you know another Miata owner who would be willing to participate, please point them to the pre-registration! We will cap the entries for safety and value. Too many cars is dangerous and can diminish the experience. Some other HPDE organizers will take as many registrants as possible to lower costs, maximize profits but that isn't our philosophy. We utilize the station workers and safety crews Road Atlanta provides, they are extremely professional and some of the best we have worked with.
