One of Flyin’ Miata’s V8-powered MX-5s will be on display at our big tent during this weekend’s Grassroots Motorsports Experience at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

You’ve seen the online chatter. Here’s your chance to see it in person. Come see it, smell it, and talk to its creators.

Fit one of Chevy’s LS V8s into an ND-chassis MX-5? Yes, it’s possible.

You don’t need one of our special tickets to see it, either. All race attendees are invited to our compound all weekend. Just look for the giant circus tent on the shores of Lake Lloyd. Magazine staff plus our project cars will be there all weekend. Each morning we’ll serve up some hot Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, too—no charge for the morning nosh.
