    Kelly used to live in SoCal and used to track a black RX-8. Life was good in those days. Welcome back Kelly.

    Thanks guys, it's good to be back!

    It was a long two years of unemployment and no fun times in my car (I traded in the RX-8 on a EP3 civic when I lost my job, fearful that the Renesis would implode on me in my dire straights and cost me thousands of pesos to repair), very happy to be back in a situation where I can do what I enjoy again, even if it is all the way across the nation from all my track buddies!

    Default Netherlands signing in...

    Hi all,

    I'm Laurens from Enschede, The Netherlands.
    Track cars:
    - 91 1.6 MaX5 Spec Miata
    - 94 1.8 Turbo Miata (230rwhp)

    Started doing trackdays in my '94 Miata around 2008, which was still stock powered by then. Quickly found the need for more power. After one failed attempt to install a turbo kit myself I had the engine properly tuned in 2009 and did more track days.

    Decided I wanted competition and found someone to train my driving skills and build a MaX5 (Spec Miata like). Won the 2010 Dutch MaX5 championship. This year with a newborn son much less activity and focussing on the turbo car which is now getting into shape with aero and all.

    ^^^ A Merkur? That's like a 25 year old car, right? Never seen one of those on the track.

    I have driven a few of those Ford Sierra Cosworths back in the days in Europe.Considering the rarity(especially here) you will have a problem finding performance parts at a reasonable price.See you on the track soon.

    Hi. I am from s2ki and I've neglected to join all these months cause my google browser never displayed the "capcha" thing when registering, so the site thought i was a spam bot.
