Being passed by a $4500 110hp Miata in your $75,000 400-hp German behemoth is an experience not to be missed.

Instead of being bored, you'll spend your days wondering about how to unbolt the seats, what's the lightest and most uncomfortable seat to replace it with, camber, lightweight wheels and tires, whether to disable traction control, and of course a set of track brakes that won't melt by the 3rd session.

You have never lived until you've done 20 white-knuckle laps at Laguna Seca (or its local equivalent) while being hounded by little Japanese-made fleas.
Once you get your times under 1:45, those pesky spec miatas start to leave you alone.
