MEAN­WHILE, ACROSS THE AT­LANTIC…

Total MX-5 - - SHOW REVIEW -

A cou­ple of weeks be­fore the Ra­gley Hall shindig, Amer­i­can MX-5 – or per­haps we’d bet­ter say Miata – en­thu­si­asts were rock­ing up in Cal­i­for­nia for an event called Mi­atas at Mazda Race­way La­guna Seca. A two-day gath­er­ing, it cen­tred on the fa­mous (and fre­quently sun-drenched) race track, with own­ers pay­ing to use the cir­cuit track­day-style.

Although the track was ex­clu­sively for Mi­atas, par­tic­i­pants were sen­si­bly split into classes, rang­ing from novice to race li­cence holder, with in­struc­tors on hand for those new to track driv­ing in gen­eral and for those fresh to La­guna Seca. Off-track ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded bar­be­cues, a car show, par­ties, live mu­sic, shop­ping op­por­tu­ni­ties, and a chance to chat with Miata ex­perts.

In prepa­ra­tion for the MX-5’S 30th birth­day the or­gan­is­ers of Mi­atas at MRLS have al­ready booked the dates for 2019’s event – Oc­to­ber 11–13. If you fancy a trip to Cal­i­for­nia to at­tend, then best you check out mi­atasat­maz­darace­way.com for fur­ther de­tails.
