2008S3 Week 1 – Formula Mazda Championship – Road America
This race was essentially about survival. Even though I calibrated my ancient Thrustmaster steering wheel, which was $30 by the way, wouldn’t get rid of the spiking in steering that it normally has.
I decided to race as I expected the field to get spread out fairly quickly and if anyone came up behind I’d always be able to let them by if I needed to…
I totally under-estimated how bad the spiking would be at high speed though and with it getting worse and worse through the race, I frankly have no idea how I didn’t crash!
I had four off track incidents during the race (and one in practice), and each one of those was caused by a spike happening in an area I couldn’t stop it from happening. So, this video isn’t so much a video of a great race, more a video to show you my survival skills!
