I know two FOT that race a Spec Miata, and both are good competitive
racers. I think all that seat time in such a tight wheel to wheel
environment really can hone your racecraft skills. Especially since
there is little to no horsepower advantage at play here.

I will admit after a couple of frustrating race weekends I have given
the concept more than a passing thought!
