MazdaDriverS.com full weekend at VIR on the Full Course Chasing Scott M. in his race-prepped E30 M3. We swapped position a few times, but he couldn't keep up in the corners. And I had a full tank of gas and a passenger! THIS WAS NOT A RACE. We are both high-performance driving instructors and passing was allowed anywhere during this session, but only with a point-by from the leading car. Vehicle is a 2005 Mazda RX-8 with stock 232 HP engine. Modifications are slightly better Progress springs, Koni shocks, gutted catalytic converter, B&B muffler, Hawk Brake HP+ front pads, Hawk HPS rear pads, and Hoosier R6 tires on stock rims. Everything else is STOCK. Car has 38000 miles on it. Filmed with a Creative Labs Vado HD camera mounted to the windshield with a Panavise 809 suction cup mount.
