Speed Ventures @ Auto Club Speedway 022313

Words by Matt Willis

A couple weeks ago, I attended another track day with Speed Ventures at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. After improving my lap times at Streets of Willow with my new seat and a little more confidence, I thought I could do the same at the ACS so I figured I’d give it a try. A friend of ours, Ham, was also running his Miata on track.

By day-end, my times went from a 2:15 down to a mid (and fairly consistent) 2:12. Fairly pleased, but I would still like to get under 2:10. I think some improvements on my driving line, some more aggression on certain turns and a front sway bar would help get it done. But that’s for another time…
