June 18th Autocross Preview

NMS Miata at Little Creek, ACU-4 in 2015
This is going to be a BIG weekend, with TWO events, in TWO states, with TWO clubs, TWO cars, TWO guys, and TWO NMS drivers fighting over the 2016 team bragging rights. Man to Man. Mano a Mano. Duel of the Duo. Trash Talking Title Time! Big Boys Battle! Sixteen Supremacy! Bob-Brian-Beat-Down! Gas Pedal Kings! Miata VS. FIAT! Rear Wheel Drive vs. Front Wheel Drive! Naturally Aspirated vs. Turbo Power!

The first event in our weekend will be Saturday, here's the preview:

So far, there are a total of 19 drivers registered to compete in our Street class at the North Carolina Region of the SCCA event coming up on Saturday June 18th, and a total of 110 drivers. While the NMS team will be co-driving the 99 Miata, you can see from the following list that the rest of the field will be wheeling a variety of cars. In the fastest category of Super Street (SS), I'm sure that the 2016 Porsche Cayman GTS and the 2014 Corvette will be pretty quick! At the other end of the spectrum in H Street (HS) is a 2016 Ford Focus, likely to be a bit slower.

NMS: All friendly before the 2016 show-down!

In between SS and HS, are all those other letters of the alphabet, AS, BS, CS, DS, ES, FS, and GS. A couple of Corvettes, Miatas, Scion FRS, Toyota MR2, VW GTI, Subaru BRZ and WRX , Ford Mustang, gives us a pretty wide range of cars. This should be a fun competition, and besides the other 17 people, of course the NMS team will be trying to defeat each other too.
