New Shocks Approved for Spec Miata
In keeping aligned with the SCCA Spec Miata rules, Autobahn has approved the use of Penske shocks in our Miata series. SCCA has performed extensive testing with these shocks and has detailed their process in the links included below. These new shocks are not mandatory so drivers who would prefer not to change at this time are not obligated. https://www.scca.com/articles/2010200-mazda-spec-miata-penske-racing-shocks-upgrade-on-way-to-nasa-scca
A detailed account of the process including part numbers and ordering information is included in this link http://mazdamsports.staging.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Spec-Miata-Shocks-Evolving.pdf
Spec Miata Engine Seal Program Continues
Spec Miata racers will, again have the opportunity to get a seal placed on their engine if they are in the process of a rebuild. Before the cylinder head is installed our Tech Inspector Joe Griffin will measure the internals to assure compliance and place a seal on the head bolts. Many drivers this past season avoided inconvenient post-race technical inspections by having this seal on the engine. The presence of a seal on the engine can give an automatic by pass when intrusive checks are performed.
If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity email Joe Griffin at [email protected] and make arrangements for an inspection.
