New Tampa based team has openings for two drivers @ Daytona April 2018!


Recommended Posts


A new team is forming to campaign ad3adman's (Mike Davis) 1990 race prepped Mazda Miata in 2018. Because we're new, our plan is for a

FUN, NO PRESSURE experience for our first few races. We won't judge you on your lap-times - as long as you don't judge ours :)


Daytona is a 14 hour enduro = over three hours of track time, on Dayton's historic banking, for each driver on the team! Paid rides

will get the early stints.

Sebring 14 hour on September 22nd is definitely on our radar!

Size matters - ad3adman and co-driver JohnMac are both about 5' 9' & 160lbs. We are looking for similarly sized teammates that can fit

in a Miata with a 15" (non-adjustable) seat.


Driver preparation:

Sim training - with no practice available at Daytona, team drivers will have access to ad3adman's excellent simulator. You'll be able

to learn the fastest line, proper gears and braking points around Daytona.

 

The Sim is ran on a high-end gaming computer with triple 40" monitors, Fanatec Wheel, v2.5 pedals, and H-Pattern shifter. Full-Motion

seat driven by 150mm actuators bolted to a Summit racing bucket seat all sitting on a custom built, all steel construction chasis. We

can run IRacing and Project cars 2 depending on the track you need to learn.     


Real Driving - Track Days! We're planning to run the car 1 or 2 times at The Firm, between now and April. This is a great chance for

you to get a few hours of seat-time at speed and a feel for the car if you've never driven a Miata + you'll be helping to sort out any

handling or technical bugs in advance of Daytona.  

Cost - PM either ad3adman or JohnMac and we can discuss. If you have access to a truck/trailer, or can supply additional pit help, or

have something else that would bring value (beyond your driving prowess) to the team, we can negotiate a lower cost for you.

 


Interested?

Hi... do you still have open spot for experienced endurance driver?.. I have many years experience in open wheel and have also ran previous chump car events.  I am very quick and know how to avoid stay clear of collisions and also how to not abuse car for edurance racing.. i.e.: not over cook brakes, no lockup tires, not abuse clutch, or grinding/ abuse tranny.  I have all safety equipment and cool suit.  I also previously worked as formula car builder/manufacturer and Master Auto Tech with state of the art diagnostic equipment and tools.. so I can help with any car prep and equipment repair and/or fab, if needed.

Hey Chris. Yes we still have 2 open spots for drivers. If we can get one more commitment for drivers in Daytona ill register the team.

Let me know if you would like to meet, see the car and so forth. Thanks for the reply.

WOW! Does that look cool. 

Mike I can't wait to try out your Sim!

 

What's the hourly cost for non-teammates?

I had thought about renting time but could not seem to come up with a number that seemed appropriate. If someone wanted to rent a few hours on it i suppose we could come up with a fair price.
