Behold the beginning of the end. The Grassroots Motorsports LeMons Miata was really moving at the start of its last race. Unfortunately, during our third stint, tragedy struck.

Good bit of video. It really does give a good idea for for how difficult it is to drive a fast line in that kind of traffic. You guys were doing well.

I was going to say that place looked like a golf course, then I realized it is Barber. Basically nicer than most golf courses.

From the thread title, I thought this was about the presidential election.

LOL at the Pontiac minivan-based Imperial Shuttle. Style points, but not fast.

The race cars vs. parade floats aspect isn't unlike the mixed species run groups that get assembled to fit 100 SCCA classes into 8 run groups. In "wings and things" you can have a pro in a formula Atlantic and a rookie in a formula Vee circulating at the same time with about a 30% lap time differential. Very tricky dealing with local yellow situations.

What's the last thing that goes through a Miata's mind before it dies?

Technically, the beginning of the end is at the end of the beginning.
