I started running autox with no other kinds of racing experience. That got me hooked quickly and I wanted more. I’ve been slowly converting my Miata from a nice street car to a more purpose built race car. That has paid off with a few records in BSP at hill climbs this year. I started running LeMons with a local team as a way to get wheel to wheel experience and that has been a blast as well.
