The Sacramento Area Miata Owners Association had their first track event at thunderhill. Lots of miatas, it was a great event.
The weird part is the plane that flew over the track, broke a wing, and crashed meters from turn 6-7. Unfortunately both occupants died, even though the TH ambulance was there in less than 5mn.
The event resumed an hour after that and went well.
Many thanks to Raphael, my friend who tagged along for the event and took great pictures of me. Incidently, the first time he rode with me, I spun in 11, and the second time, I went right past the tower in 5 (didn't manage to brake enough and was not going to make the turn). Figures...
The many picts are here
