Topic: Team Oktoberfest Racing Sunday, Miata #19 spin in T8a

Our driver David L on Sunday. Last part of video shows him chasing White Miata #19 for about a lap before the Miata spins out in the esses.
@9:57 in video. Not really sure what happened to cause the spin....

Miata goed too fast.

Unless it was a coolant line spewing water onto the road surface/rear tires interface, like my spin in the same place on Saturday morning. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

How does one spin a Miata? I thought those things were as sticky as the booger you try to flick out of your car window?
