So after a decent start to the season going to both the Majors races at Hallett and Blackhawk, next was the June Sprints at Road America. Unfortunately we struggled all weekend with a motor being down on power and a poor suspension setup done by yours truly. By Sunday we were just looking to leave with some good notes for next time but fate had other plans.

We were involved in the caution crash before coming to the green and have decided to retire the old girl. There is enough damage that it would cost me more to fix than it is worth.

Here is the in-car video:

And a couple pictures of the damage...

We are doing some research and planning now. We'd still like to salvage our planned trip to Laguna this year so we have to act fast. As I thought, the next big thing appears to be the 2001-05 VVT miatas so we are looking at them now. Fortunately we can use a lot of the existing parts so that will cut our expenses considerably.
