New to trackhq,
Norm, from Glendora,Ca,
Involved in road racing since the late 80's, started in FV's, then to Datsun 510, A Sedan Camaro, vintage BP corvette, spec Miata, FF not on that order. Most interesting race was the Downtown Los Angeles vintage race, good tomes. Great site, thank you for the add.
Accidentally put an old picture of the ITA crx also. Still looking for the 510 pictures.
Home: Oakland, CA
Occupation: Senior Director of Business Operations and Solutions Architect
Favorite Track: Thunderhill East CCW Cyclone configuration.
Car: 2016 Ford Focus RS -- the car is basically completely stock with the exception of a short shift kit and stainless brake lines.
I've got racing in my blood, my dad has been racing vintage for about 15 years (1968 Alfa Romeo GTA and 1958 Cooper Formula Junior). I only just started doing HPDE events about 6 months ago when I got my RS. Really enjoying it so far, I'm completely hooked. Turns out I'm pretty good at it too (for a relative noob), which certainly makes it more fun. So far I've run at Thunderhill West, Thunderhill East (Bypass), Thunderhill East (Cyclone), and Sonoma. Heading down to Buttonwillow next weekend and looking forward to Laguna Seca in the near future.
Great to meet everyone!

I just bought my wife a 2017 RS of exactly the same color. It is a very impressive car.
How does yours handle 30 minute sessions on track?
To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?
I've been lurking for a while, thought I would out myself. Have owned Alfas since childhood (well into my 50's now) and now vintage race a 1965 Alfa Giulia Sprint GT. Have done a couple Lemons/Chump races with Track HQ member, CraZee. Met him at the Coronado vintage races after we had a great track battle. Autocross a Subaru BRZ also have 1969 Alfa Spider street car. Sadly, I have never owned a Miata which means I will probably get kicked off this forum.
It's never too late to own a Miata!
