  • Review: The Best Value Fire System For Road Racing (680 views)

    By Winding Road Staff on October 17, 2018 11:06 a.m.

    Fire suppression is somewhat like life insurance: a topic that isn't all that much fun to talk about, but a necessary one, nonetheless. We have found a fire suppression system that we think checks just about all the boxes, and so could be said to be the best value on the market. That system is the...

  • No Passing At COTA? You're Doing Something Wrong. (912 views)

    By Winding Road Staff on October 10, 2018 9:59 a.m.

    Here we ride with Winding Road Racing team driver Tom Martin III for the first few laps of a recent Spec MX-5 Challenge race at Circuit of The Americas. Martin, along with fellow drivers Noah Grey (07 white) and Harry Voigt (09 blue), demonstrate that there are multiple pass and re-pass points around the F1 track. In particular, T1, T11, T12, T15, T19 and T20 offer passing opportunities in many cars. Passing in the esses is trickier, but if you are significantly faster it can be done, especially in T5/T6.
