COTA seat in GP3 Miata

Postby vss » Tue Oct 24, 2017 6:23 pm

Roughly two hour stint for each day on Saturday and Sunday. We have two drivers with WRL, Chump races under the belt and one experienced driver with racing in multiple disciplines and levels including WRL. Will be running in GP3 class and we should be in top 20-30% in and with lots of luck on the podium. We are looking for an experienced, consistent and more on the conservative side driver. The car is a 1997 Miata:

Safety:
- Spec Miata Cage Kit that was very well installed by a professional Chris from X-Factor.
- Welded in floor drop pan for extra head clearance (2 drivers are 6’1”).
- SPA 4 fire suppression system with 4 spray nozzles (2 in cockpit, 2 on the engine).
- Schroth 3” belt 6 point seat belt.
- Quick disconnect steering wheel.
- 16” Spec Miata seat with added head supports.
- Coolshirt system.

Other:
- Coil-over suspension, new bushings, sway bars.
- Aftermarket aluminum radiator, improved cooling system, air intake, cheapo exhaust collector down.
- Engine rebuilt this summer - bearings, rings, lapped valves, seals, gaskets, etc.
- Rebuilt transmission this summer - new fork ends, synchros, retainer rings.
- Planning to use RS4 tires.
- We do our best to prep the car - brakes, fluids, bearings but in a racing environment things get pushed and may eventually fail. We bring ample spares, but there is still a chance that mechanical, electrical problems may prevent from finishing.

Terms:
- $1,500 for 4 hours of racing. Roughly 2 hour stint each day. $500 non-refundable downpayment.
- Driver responsible for crash damages (regardless of fault) and mechanical failures caused by gross driver error.
- Pay only for the time in seat and get reimbursed if unable to race due to issues with the car.
- We do not expect you to help around the pits, but a set of hands would be helpful.

If interested, please PM information about you, experience, any videos, and references you may have. Once committed, prior to the event we can meet at MSR Cresson where we are members to get on track for a test session. Or simply meet at the garage in north Dallas to check seat fitment.
