    I am assuming that Oli will jump at the chance to buy some decent rubber at Miata prices.

    1:44 is a pretty safe bet. 2013 Miata Challenge street class cars were turning 1:38-1:39 SVC

    My street class car turned 1:39 flat with a 99 1.8L that has seen better days, bfg rivals and basic coilover suspension. That was was my second ever tack day at WSIR in a rwd car. A better driver would have easily been 1 second faster if not more.
