A little of the "crazy gene" helps in Spec Miata - especially at Road Atlanta - Steyn hanging it out!

This lap is a composite of several laps from different sessions, all edited together to form one fun filled lap

Don't try this at home!!!!!

2012 ARRC Spec Miata Race at Road Atlanta - Steyn and Brown to the wire!

November 3rd 2012

In a closely contested race, Cliff Brown holds off the challenge from Danny Steyn. Jim Drago is an early contender but an off in Turn 5 ends his chances. Brown and Steyn pull away to wing over over Drago and Blake Clements.

This video shows the start, the first 4 laps and the last 4 laps...... middle section of the race was just like the beginning and the end! Brown and Steyn were never separated by more than 0.3 seconds for the entire 20 lap race.

If you want to skip to the good part - watch from 12:00 onwards and see how the last lap pass attempt succeeds and then fails as I get too greedy in T7.

Daytona Race 2 - Awesome wheel-to-wheel racing

August 12th 2012

If you race Spec Miata, then you get it. If you don't race Spec Miata, this video should convince you to build, buy or rent a car and come and have some fun with us. You don't know what you are missing

This was Sunday's Race 2 at the 2012 Daytona Double SARRC. There were two full course yellows and of course, two restarts that brought the whole field close together. That makes for some intense wheel-to-wheel, bumper-to-bumper racing, three wide into turns, a huge passes on the outside going into T1, some absolute craziness in the bus stop, and some amazing freight trains that left me hung out to dry - TWICE (you would think I would learn after the first one!)

And just in case you are not sure of how much sure how much bump drafting works, just take a look at the segment from 8:00 to 9:30 and the segment at the finish 18:50 onwards - You'll understand!!!!

Road Atlanta National Race 1 - Full Video

May 22nd 2012

Full video from Steyn's in car camera, chasing Drago, Brown, Sandlin and Topping.

Steyn's great Rossini motor blows up while setting the pole lap when the radiator hose blows off. Steyn runs the national race with a spare motor that is down on power and tries to hold onto the leaders by out driving them through the infield (Turn 1- Turn 7)

Steyn hangs on for 12 laps until the tires finally let go. Up front Drago and Brown have an exceptionally hard fought race with Drago hanging on for the win.

Road Atlanta National Qualifying - Pole Lap

May 21st 2012

The new OPM Spec Miata built for Steyn continues its sorting out process, and appears that the program is headed in the right direction. Steyn took his new car to pole positions in both the National and Pro-IT qualifying grids, out qualifying several top flight National contenders, including Drago, Sandlin and Brown.

In the National qualifying session, unfortunately a radiator hose let go and Steyn almost spun out in Turn 12 in his own coolant, but hung on to get the pole!

2012 SCCA Spec Miata Double National at VIR Race 2 in the rain

April 22nd 2012

Sunday's Race 2 was held in soaking rain. Steyn starts from the front row but gets dropped at the start and falls back to 4th. Steyn then spends time driving blind in the spray from the cars ahead. Steyn has a huge moment when he goes off at South Bend, gets airborne and comes back across the track narrowly missing the tire wall. Steyn recovers and while everyone around him starts flying off the track, Steyn keeps calm, keeps it on the track and finishes 2nd to Todd Buras.

2012 SCCA Spec Miata Double National at Road Atlanta - Race 2

March 18th 2012

Very close racing at Road Atlanta. Steyn qualifies 6th, but drops back to 12th after a missed shift at Turn 7 on first lap, then claws his way back through the field to finish 4th. Lots of very tight racing. Up front Cliff Brown, Pat Sandlin and Alex Bolanos run away from the field. But duking it out for 4th place are Jim Drago, Andrew Charbonneau, Andrew Carbonnel, Voytek Burdzy, Selin Rollan, Jeff Labounty, Pat McGinnis and Mike Cottrell. Lots of bump drafting to get back up in contention!

Last lap of the intense battle between Chip Van Vurst, Andrew Charbonneau and Danny Steyn. Charbonneau leads out of Oaktree, but is past by Van Vurst on entry into Hogpen. Van Vurst overshoots the turn and Charbonneau does the classic over/under to regain the lead. Van Vurst trails Charbonneau but gets a great run out of Hogpen and side drafts past Charbonneau for the win. Steyn hangs on for 3rd.

Spec Miata National at Roebling Road. Steyn and Van Vurst battle for the win.

March 7th 2011

The Spec Miata field took to a wet but drying track. Steyn who had qualified in 4th place drove to the front by the end of lap 1 and opened a commanding lead on Van Vurst. As the track dried Van Vurst found a faster line and closed in on Steyn, eventually taking the lead around lap 8. Steyn then tried everything to get back past Van Vurst, and the last 5 laps provided some spectacular offensive and defensive driving from this pair. The rest of the flied were no longer in contention. Chip van Vurst held of Danny Steyn for the win by a hair.

Watkins Glen National Spec Miata Race. Danny Steyn's horrific crash into Mike Collins.

July 10th 2010

In the first race of the Double National Spec Miata race at Watkins Glen in July 2010, Steyn has a horrific crash. This video starts after the restart of the race after the first Full Course Yellow. Coming through the bus stop, Collins loses control ahead of Steyn and ends up turned sideways on the racing line. Steyn is following Bednarz and cannot see Collins car until too late. Fortunately Bednarz's car rips off Collins front right wheel and this becomes the launching pad for Steyn's car and prevents the full impact into Collins's car.
