That was quite a race against all those FP Miatas. Craig held on from a very fast start by Ethan Shippert in another Seven until Ethan had a tire go flat after the first lap.

For those that do not know Craig, he is just a great person. And a hell of a driver. He was my instructor at Lotus Owners Gathering 38 track event. Taught me alot.
