        I'll be taking photos while the enduro is going on, but I'm thinking of super-sizing into PTE.

                  Yes. It's much easier to do when I, you know, have a car. And boy I could use the seat time.

                    So hows everyone doing? Someone should take pics of the qualifying times and race results.

                      PTE Saturday:
                      Podium- Gordon, Fuzzy, white/orange miata from NorCal
                      3 people, including myself, DNFed. I had "electrical problems", emilio had engine problems, and the 2nd mother's car had a pretty violent airborne off at the bus stop (which I caught on camera).

                      PTE Sunday:
                      Podium - E3 Saturn, Anthony, Fuzzy
                      The Saturn got me on the start and I couldn't get past him. I'd try to stick my nose inside and put some pressure on him but then I would make a mistake and spend the next few laps catching up again.

                        Is the Mothers driver/car ok? Who was driving? Post the video. Watched some of your Sun race video, you were a lot faster than the Saturn. Knowing what you know now, what would you have done different?

                          ok, maybe I exaggerated a little bit about the mother's car. Here's a video of Saturday's Start and first lap plus the mother's car spin. I doubt anyone got hurt because I think this car logged at least 2 more laps before stopping.

                          I don't know. I'm still new to race craft and Sunday was my 4th w2w race. Looks like I made up the most time on the Saturn between the esses and bus stop. I guess timing a pass at riverside would have been my best bet besides waiting for a mistake. I knew he was an experienced endurance racer so I figured he knows how to drive within his limits at a reasonable pace. I only saw small mistakes that didn't leave much room to capitalize plus it was the final race on my provisional license. I'm definitely open to suggestions or critique.

                            As I said on FB, I think you made the right decision to not force a pass while still on a provisional. You've had some great races already, you'll have plenty more opportunities. I haven't watched the race yet, I hope to learn a thing or two as well from it.

                              I remember now that you mentioned you just started racing. Congrats! As for suggestions, im at P25 on BRPs top 25 for 1CCW so youre probably better off listening to someone else. I only glanced through a few laps, but i agree with Eric that you did good not forcing a pass since youre on your provisional. Other than that, one thing i remember is that your min speeds in some of the corners are a little low. If your suspension is something other than the SM setup, keep in mind ive only driven an SM so i dont have experience between a PT Miata with suspension vs the SM stuff. Lots of fast Miata guys here who can help you, and im guessing you know them all. Good job and keep at it.
