Thread: New to the area... new to me Miata

    Default New to the area... new to me Miata

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to the Waco area (moved here Tuesday from Minneapolis) and I just purchased a 2002 class red Miata in the Dallas area. Looking to meet some other people outside of work. I plan to autox... is there anyone here going to the event in Dallas this Sunday? Do you know if they set up the course / practice on Saturday? I'd like to stop by and meet some folks before I commit to driving back up to Dallas on Sunday.

    I am super excited about picking up my new car... Texas is beautiful so far!

    Thanks guys,

    Kate

    Welcome aboard Kate... I'm sure those that will be at the SCCA event will chime in shortly. They usually meet for breakfast somewhere near the event site...

    Kate, check out www.dfwautocross.com for all of the Dallas/Fort Worth AX action.

    Also check out the Texas A&M Sports Car Club, as they have some great events not too far from you, too. There is also a Baylor car club there in Waco, but they do not do much in the way of autocrossing. You do not need to be a student to join the TXAMSCC events. I do not know the limits for the Baylor club.

    Welcome to the board.

    Welcome.

    There will not be any practice on Saturday for the event on Sunday. And, the course will not be set up until Sunday morning.

    Have you autocrossed before?

    I will be there. This year I will be using number 61, rather than 91, running in E stock.

    If you were as slow as me, you wouldn't be afraid either.

    Glad you made it! I assume you're the same one that posted on miata.net. Seriously, come to Hallett.

    I picked up the new car today and plan to go to the SCCA event at DFW on Sunday. I couldn't find a place in Waco that sells acceptable helmets though . The car is beautiful! Look for me... the confused looking girl with a red 2002.

    Bring a painter's head sock, we have helmets to lend.

    That is ridiculous looking... I wonder if painters really use them... At the risk of sounding stupid, in TX weather I think I'd rather just get paint on my head.

    Paint on your head is not as bad as putting on a loaner helmet that is all squishy from the last driver
