I must say mazdadrivers put on the most professional driving school I have ever attended. Well run school from what saw.
Except for a Vette that passed me very late on the front straight, without a point by, it was an enjoyable event.

Hopefully we'll have another Marque Madness that will tie in with the Mazda event and make it another 4 day weekend.

I certainly had a blast, it was the most enjoyable event thus far for me. Those little Miatas are truly amazingly fast.

Lucky you Steve, I wish I could have done all 4 days as well. I must say that I enjoyed the Marque Madness school. My run group had a relatively small number of people in it, hardly any crowding. My instructor was great, overall a great time. Makes me wish I lived closer to VIR.

Nice steering control. Pretty smooth.

My steering is jerky. :(

First shot is a black Vette taking the liberty of passing me and the Spec Miata without pointbys.

Those nasty Vettes can't be trusted. Won't even wait for a point by late in the braking zone! Who do they think they are?

:redface:I couldn't believe he passed me. Not only me, but the Miata infront of me. I gave a few pointbys on the front straight. I saw they Vette coming but figured there was nowhere for him to go and would have given him a pointby after turn 1. Other than a P-car that drag raced me down the back straight, it was a good group.
