With the popularity of the Maxxis RC1 in US SUPER Miata Cup we decided to give these tires a try at our local Atlantic Motorsports Park in Shubienacadie, Nova Scotia. Read on to hear our opinion of these tires in comparison to Nitto NT01.
A bit of misfortune caught up to us at the racing weekend. We didn’t get to race due to mechanical failure. So we packed it up and headed home – not a great feeling by any means. I guess this is the other side of racing. This shit happens to everyone at some point. The best we can do is reflect, learn a lesson (which I’m about to share) to avoid or prevent future recurrences, and think positive.
We had a great first year racing jumping from GT6 to GT5 with minor setup changes and had a share of experiences. Here are our top 10 lessons from last year.
We had a long winter of hibernation… Well, not really. The Bluenose Autoclub Rallycross Championship kept us occupied (see Team Yellow Sentra’s Facebook page, that was us causing a ruckus). But now the 2017 road racing season is about to commence and we’re excited! The first race of the season is May 28th, 2017, but tomorrow we’ll get the chance for a few laps at the track to shakedown the car and heat cycle the tires.
