Why just pick a single generation of Miata to celebrate when you could celebrate every generation of Miata?

Set for October 27-28 at Lime Rock Park, MiataCon aims to bring together “Miata owners, fans and industry experts from around the country to revel in the passion for this legendary roadster.”

Highlights from the weekend’s schedule include sprint races for Global MX-5, Spec Miata and more, as well as HPDE sessions, parade laps, car corrals and “MiataX,” a Miata-only lapping session of the FCP Euro Proving Grounds.

Advanced tickets start at $25. Camping and infield parking are also available.

Looks like free general admission for veterans and active military.  Good for them.

A Miata-only autocross and track day, eh? So what makes this special, compared to any other autocross or track day?

Thought about going, but then saw the date and that's kind of late in the year. I've seen them salt the roads in Central New York that early. And then I remembered that the last time I took my Miata to Lime Rock Park, when I lent it to some YouTube channels for filming, my car ended up getting thrown out for noise violation. Yeah, that'll be a pass.

It's very dependent on the weather at that point. If there's salt down already, and there well might be, attendance is going to be affected. That said, the FCP Euro Proving Grounds autox course is really entertaining - a great mix of high and low speed corners, as well as elevation changes, and it can be configured in several different ways.

Hmm, scratch my last post.  Didn't realize how early the roads can get salted up there.

Super dependent on the season. With how warm this summer has been, maybe it'll carry through to late fall. The other issue is that if you're running grippy boi tires, that late in the year you could get down into temperatures that damage them, or at the very least makes them have all the grip of a polished marble.

You'll need to log in to post.
