I'm in for TT.

 

...but if anyone is willing I'd love to throw my car on a trailer if you have room. Otherwise I'm driving the 8 hours in the Miata and hoping nothing too important breaks. I would of course provide compensation.

Could be worth renting a truck and trailer...

No need for the trailer.  Just use this method to get the Miata in the U-haul.

You can use my trailer and ramps to load and unload.  But you have to let us film the process.

I am thinking on this, I feel the same. My car has lasted to long without any issues.

Btw, that beautiful race car noise you're hearing in the above is a 1.6 Miata.

And just because I'm a shitty driver doesn't make a miata any less slow.

There is no DE1/2, so there is no instructing. At least there was not last year.

We're in, love me some Hallet.  We parked down by the pond last year and had great power, a breeze and plenty of room the stretch out.  I even found some sweet jumps for the minibike.  Bring it on

Hallett is fantastic. Very challenging to get right IMO.

Hey, I was running out of dry track to try and beat your lap time. I was driving flat out.
