2016 Battery Tender Global MX-5 Cup Race 2 Road Atlanta

04/10/2016 In car video from my seat in the Meathead Racing car #6. I start in 19th place, drive very conservatively and slowly move up the field as the attrition takes out drivers ahead of me, finally finishing in 10th place. Despite my conservative approach my lap times were very competitive, just a tenth or two off the fastest lap of the day. I brought the car home with not a scratch on it!

This is why I LOVE Spec Miata V2.0 - THE MOST INTENSE START EVER - 2016 June Sprints

20/06/2016 THE MOST INTENSE SPEC MIATA START EVER. Bumper to bumper for at least 15 rows deep all the way to Turn 1, and 3 wide through turn 1. Make sure you watch at 3:24 - full screen rear bumper. No other class can come close to this kind of racing.

2016 VIR Majors STL Race 1

21/04/2016 My Jesse Prather built, OPM supported Mazda MX-5 can run some decent lap times on its own with a clean track, but it is pretty hard to "race" under the current rule set. By racing I mean passing and being passed. Lapping in formation is not really racing IMO

2016 VIR Majors SM Race 2 - How to go from 14th to 6th to 28th to 9th

21/04/2016 Not my finest day at VIR! Several years ago I overcame a 16th place qualifying and drove to the win, so I was hoping I could overcome my 14th place start. Well I went from 14th to 6th by Turn 5 and then promptly drove myself off at Oak Tree, falling back to 28th. Then together with Michael Ross we put on a demonstration of team driving and moved up into the top 10, and I finished 9th when Michael went wide at the top of Hog Pen. All in all a fun ride!

2015 Sebring Turkey Trot Spec Miata - NOW THIS IS FUN!!!

01/12/2015 This is why we love Spec Miata. Intense wheel-to-wheel, side-by-side racing, mirrors overlapping, no blocking, no BS, just pure fun wheeling a car as hard and as fast as you can. Such respect for ALL the Spec Miata drivers that race me clean week after week. Race 2 Sebring Turkey Trot. Danny Steyn vs Selin Rollan vs Cory Collum vs Andrew Charbonneau vs John Carter vs Jeff Labounty NOTE - at 24:50 there is about 1 second of video missing where the transition from one file to another took place on the Mobius Camera at the file limit size. Have no idea what happened there.

2015 ARRC Spec Miata Road Atlanta Danny Steyn vs Blake Clements

09/11/2015 Danny Steyn and Blake Clements battle head to head in an epic Spec Miata race for the 2015 American Road Race of Champions (ARRC).

Race ends under full course yellow This is Danny Steyn's 3rd Spec Miata ARRC title and his 4th overall.

2015 Spec Miata NASA Nationals VIR - Danny Steyn's Race ends in 14 seconds

06/09/2015 This is one of my issues with NASA Nationals qualifying system. Sometimes you end up with drivers starting out of place with no real understanding of how to handle a National Start. Just watch the red/silver car #78 car ahead who typically finished 3-5 seconds per lap behind the leaders in all the sessions, but due to NASA's qualifying system starts near the front and then destroys the race for some faster drivers with a ZERO PERCENTAGE MOVE. NOT GOOD.

Scary Last 60 seconds from 2015 NASA Championships VIR QR1

04/09/2015 Qualifying Race 1 starts out wet/dry, but on lap 3 the heavens opened and we all started aquaplaning in the braking zone to Turn 1. I go off and get stuck in the sand trap, watching 20 Spec Miatas spinning off hurtling towards me. So fortunate that only two of them hit me - could have been so much worse.

2015 June Sprints Spec Miata winner Danny Steyn post race interview

18/08/2015 Danny Steyn won his 2nd June Sprints title, this time winning over Todd Lamb, in the rain at Road America. Steyn started from the pole, his 3rd June Sprints pole starting position.

2015 June Sprints Spec Miata Road America Danny Steyn vs Todd Lamb

22/06/2015 Some very close racing in trying wet conditions at the 60th running of the June Sprints at Road America. Danny Steyn starts from pole with Todd Lamb alongside, both on rain tires. Jim Drago, Craig Berry and Erik Stearns behind gamble on dry tires and it doesn't pay off for them. Unfortunately in-car-camera USB power cable pops loose so only rear camera for the last three laps. Danny Steyn's June Sprints Resume * 2010 - Champion (wet) * 2011 - 2nd Place * 2012 - 5th Place * 2013 - Leading in last corner of last lap, but taken out by others * 2014 - Led all laps but Lamb got by, just as they threw the FCY and it finished under Yellow * 2015 - Champion (wet)

2015 NASA June Jam Road Atlanta Spec Miata Lightning Race 2

09/06/2015 Flat out CRAZY Race. First two minutes are boring, and then it just goes NUTS. NASA sends out Spec Miata first, and we end up on our first lap flying through T12 blind onto the front straight to see the trailing end of the Spec E30 grid taking the green, and our closing rate is absurd. The next 15 minutes feature crazy wheel to wheel passing with Spec E30's who are way faster down the straights, and way slower in the turns FUN TIMES!!!

2015 Summit Point Spec Miata Post Race Interview with Danny Steyn

03/05/2015 Danny Steyn wins race 2 at Summit Point Majors in a close fight with Tyler Kicera. Steyn clinches the 2015 South East Majors Conference in Spec Miata for the 2nd time.

2015 VIR Majors Spec Miata Race 1 - Steyn loses to Machavern by 71/1000ths

20/04/2015 Exciting racing between the top Spec Miata drivers in the country at the 5th round of the 2015 Majors events in the South East Conference. The top 6 qualified withing 3/10ths of a second and the top 17 qualified within 1 second. There is no other class that generates anywhere as close wheel-to-wheel racing as Spec Miata. After Andrew Carbonnel goes off at around 6:30 and rejoins, he has grass in the radiator and the temps start to build and by the last lap the ECU is pulling so much timing that his car slows down considerably. He pulls off with 3/4 lap to go to save the engine.

2015 SCCA Majors Road Atlanta Spec Miata Race 1

23/03/2015 Really exciting Race 1 between Dillon Machavern, Danny Steyn and Jonathon Goring during the first Spec Miata race at the 2015 Road Atlanta Majors. First two laps are really fun, as well as the last two laps starting at 17:20. Last lap (19:35) is particularly exciting with Steyn and Machavern passing a lapper on either side through the downhill esses - guess he needed an underwear change after that moment!

2014 Road Atlanta Spec Miata Rain Race - Exploring the limits on a wet track

23/05/2014 More practice in the wet at Road Atlanta in my OPM built Rossini powered Spec Miata. Qualified on the pole and handily won the race, and had some fun on the cool down lap putting on a show to thank the corner workers for enduring a miserable day so we could race. Almost tossed it away in T10B. Huge thanks to my sponsors including Rossini Racing Engines, OPM Autosports, Traqmate Data, Carbotech Brakes, Adept Studios.

2014 VIR Majors Race - Lap 1 Carnage

21/04/2014 Here is the STL, STU, T2, T3, T4 Race 1 in which a Yellow Nissan 370Z T almost causes several incidents on the first lap before finally T-Boning Michael Scornivacchi's Blue Mustang, causing more than $100,000 worth of damage to multiple cars. Cars caught up in the carnage include Cliff Brown, Andrew Charbonneau, Forrest Landy, Connor Flynn, Joseph Strong and others.

2014 Road Atlanta Majors - Danny Steyn crashes in Turn 5 with two laps to go

21/03/2014 In Race 2, Steyn was just pushing too hard and with two laps to go was closing in on 4th place and over drove the exit of turn 5 and crashed head first at 78 MPH into the tire wall in T5.

2014 NASA Road Atlanta Rain Race - Steyn vs Gorriaran

18/03/2014 Danny Steyn and Steve Gorriaran have an intense Spec Miata race in the rain at Road Atlanta. Neither wants to give an inch, but both have to protect their cars, as the bit SCCA Majors race is just 4 days away. Steve drives a stellar race to hold Steyn behind him and goes on for the win. Toyo "rain" tires make for very sketchy conditions with the front and rear breaking away in every corner making the steering wheel very light in the drivers hands and requiring very cautious inputs of steering, brake and throttle. Here is the whole rain race, not all of it is exciting but some might want to see how Steve Gorriaran and I start finding speed on the track trying different lines, different braking points, new passing lines, sometimes finding speed and sometimes scaring ourselves silly. Steve pulls off some very significant passes on lapped traffic in the last few laps With the unshaved Toyo RA-1 "rain" tires the car is on the verge of a slide from turn in to track out and the steering wheel is just so light in your hands the entire time. And often in the braking points we were going into turn T10A with all 4 wheels locked up. Very, very scary. Being crossed up side-by-side with another driver not giving an inch and big concrete walls either side is pretty nerve wracking. Then on top of that we have the Majors race in just 4 days from this so no chance for Steve or I to repair anything if we get it wrong. Passing on the outside of turn1 in the rain is also not for everyone, but it was not nearly as hairy as the feeling from the exit of T3 to the exit of T5 where the entire time I was expecting the car to get away from me. • Lap 1 is fun finding out what the track and tires have to offer. • Really fun side-by-side passing attempts on the outside of turns starts at 16:00. Initially we completely check out from the field of BMW Spec E30's, but towards the end when I start trying to pass Steve it slows us down and then the E30's come into the picture and make the last two laps really hairy.

2014 Barber - Danny Steyn comes to terms with the NASA TT format - Barber Motosports Park

22/02/2014 Danny Steyn's makes first foray into NASA's TT at Barber Motosports Park, a place where he has set the Spec Miata lap record on four occasions. In the TT events, a huge variety of cars with vast dissimilar HP outputs, and a huge variety of driver skills all converge for a 3-5 lap time trial format. One fast lap is all you want. However there is a lot of traffic on the track, some fast in a straight line, some slow in the corners, and may unpredictable in both, and several who lack situational awareness. Getting one clean lap is not as easy as you would imagine as this video shows (5 laps from 3 different sessions are shown here)

2014 New Barber Motorsports Park Spec Miata track record 1:45.719 on Toyos Danny Steyn

24/02/2014 After setting a Spec Miata new track record in August of 2013, I felt that we would be much faster on a colder day. Well we got our cold day, and this time, on Toyo RR's which are not nearly as fast as the Hoosier SM6's, I was able to go a full second faster and run a 1:45.719. In fact I ran ten of the eleven laps under my previous lap record. The following day I ran a 1:44.818 on Hoosiers in the TT event, but unfortunately as it was not a race it doesn't count as a track record, but it is still the fastest lap ever run by a Spec Miata at Barber!

2014 PBIR Majors Spec Miata Race 2. Alex Bolanos, Danny Steyn, Andrew Carbonell, Selin Rollan

Despite being given the green flag and racing to the checker, the last lap is deemed to have started after the official race time had expired, so the final positions were determined by the last lap under caution. Features Alex Bolanos, Craig Berry, Todd Lamb, Jim Drago, Danny Steyn, Blake Clements, Selin Rollan Jnr, Andrew Charbonneau and many more!

2013 ARRC Spec Miata Road Atlanta - Main Race (Bumper Cam)

06/11/2013 2013 ARRC Spec Miata Full Race. Unfortunately around the 8 minute mark, I lost power to the Traqmate which shut off the in-car camera and I lost the shift light as well. Bumper Cam for the remainder. Video Highlights • The start is awesome with the bumper cam • 13:30 to 19:00 has some pretty intense racing with lots of passing. Dan pushes Cliffy past me and Dan and I drive 4 turns side by side with Mark and Blake trying to get past too. Cliff opens up a lead in front of us. At the end of that lap Dan drops a wheel under the bridge at T11 and that lets Drennan get the run. Who would have thought that would have killed his momentum that much. • 17:00 Mark Drennan gets the run and tries the pass on me but gets sideways in T10A and that allows me to get back by with help from Blake • 18:00 I have my Dukes of Hazard moment trying to pass a lapped car on the outside of T5 and Blake almost bumps me while I am still recovering!!! Really looks awesome with the rear view camera, especially the end of that lap with Blake all over my bumper! • 31:00 Cliffy catches the lapped car that takes him all the way to the left of the track. I get past the lapper through T10 and get under Cliffy and make the pass by T1. The lapped driver goes for a wild ride through T1 behind Cliffy. • 32:30 Cliffy makes another pass attempt on the back straight and I manage to get it back going through T12 side by side again. This sets up the last lap. • 34:30 Cliffy makes the pass on the back straight but the side draft keeps me in the hunt for an amazing finish Huge shoutout to Cliff, Mark, Voytek, Blake, Andrew, Dan and the rest of the amazing Spec Miata class for putting on such a great show! Hard, clean wheel to wheel racing all weekend!

08/01/2013 Some phenomenal driving by Todd Buras to pass Danny Steyn on the outside of turn 17 on the final lap to win by 4/100ths of a second. The top 5 drivers were within 0.4 seconds. And the top 12 Spec Miata drivers qualified within 1 second of the pole sitter Todd Buras. Hats off the Rossini powered Chip van Vurst for a great comeback. Chip was leading with 2 laps to go!!! Andrew Charbonneau, Alex Bolanos, Jim Drago, Pat Sandlin, Craig Berry, Jamie Tucker, Cory Collum, Jeff Labounty, Bruce Anderson, Nick Leverone ....... anyone of these drivers (and more) could have won it. The 2013 Spec Miata class is going to be one of the most competitive classes in all of amateur racing.

A little of the "crazy gene" helps in Spec Miata - especially at Road Atlanta - Steyn hanging it out!


Danny Steyn having fun on test day in two different cars.This lap is a composite of several laps from different sessions, all edited together to form one fun filled lap. Don't try this at home!!!!!

2012 ARRC Spec Miata Race at Road Atlanta - Steyn and Brown to the wire!


In a closely contested race, Cliff Brown holds off the challenge from Danny Steyn. Jim Drago is an early contender but an off in Turn 5 ends his chances. Brown and Steyn pull away to wing over over Drago and Blake Clements.

This video shows the start, the first 4 laps and the last 4 laps...... middle section of the race was just like the beginning and the end! Brown and Steyn were never separated by more than 0.3 seconds for the entire 20 lap race.

If you want to skip to the good part - watch from 12:00 onwards and see how the last lap pass attempt succeeds and then fails as I get too greedy in T7.

2012 This is why I LOVE Spec Miata - Spec Miata drafting at Daytona Danny Steyn and others


If you race Spec Miata, then you get it. If you don't race Spec Miata, this video should convince you to build, buy or rent a car and come and have some fun with us. You don't know what you are missing.

This was Sunday's Race 2 at the 2012 Daytona Double SARRC. There were two full course yellows and of course, two restarts that brought the whole field close together. That makes for some intense wheel-to-wheel, bumper-to-bumper racing, three wide into turns, a huge passes on the outside going into T1, some absolute craziness in the bus stop, and some amazing freight trains that left me hung out to dry - TWICE (you would think I would learn after the first one!)

And just in case you are not sure of how much sure how much bump drafting works, just take a look at the segment from 8:00 to 9:30 and the segment at the finish 18:50 onwards - You'll understand!!!!

Road Atlanta National Race 1 - Full Video


Full video from Steyn's in car camera, chasing Drago, Brown, Sandlin and Topping.

Steyn's great Rossini motor blows up while setting the pole lap when the radiator hose blows off. Steyn runs the national race with a spare motor that is down on power and tries to hold onto the leaders by out driving them through the infield (Turn 1- Turn 7) Steyn hangs on for 12 laps until the tires finally let go. Up front Drago and Brown have an exceptionally hard fought race with Drago hanging on for the win.

Road Atlanta National Qualifying - Pole Lap


The new OPM Spec Miata built for Steyn continues its sorting out process, and appears that the program is headed in the right direction. Steyn took his new car to pole positions in both the National and Pro-IT qualifying grids, out qualifying several top flight National contenders, including Drago, Sandlin and Brown.

In the National qualifying session, unfortunately a radiator hose let go and Steyn almost spun out in Turn 12 in his own coolant, but hung on to get the pole!

2012 SCCA Spec Miata Double National at VIR Race 2 in the rain

22/04/2012 Sunday's Race 2 was held in soaking rain. Steyn starts from the front row but gets dropped at the start and falls back to 4th. Steyn then spends time driving blind in the spray from the cars ahead. Steyn has a huge moment when he goes off at South Bend, gets airborne and comes back across the track narrowly missing the tire wall. Steyn recovers and while everyone around him starts flying off the track, Steyn keeps calm, keeps it on the track and finishes 2nd to Todd Buras.

2012 SCCA Spec Miata Double National at Road Atlanta - Race 2


Very close racing at Road Atlanta. Steyn qualifies 6th, but drops back to 12th after a missed shift at Turn 7 on first lap, then claws his way back through the field to finish 4th. Lots of very tight racing. Up front Cliff Brown, Pat Sandlin and Alex Bolanos run away from the field. But duking it out for 4th place are Jim Drago, Andrew Charbonneau, Andrew Carbonnel, Voytek Burdzy, Selin Rollan, Jeff Labounty, Pat McGinnis and Mike Cottrell. Lots of bump drafting to get back up in contention!

Spec Miata National at Roebling Road. Steyn and Van Vurst battle for the win.


The Spec Miata field took to a wet but drying track. Steyn who had qualified in 4th place drove to the front by the end of lap 1 and opened a commanding lead on Van Vurst. As the track dried Van Vurst found a faster line and closed in on Steyn, eventually taking the lead around lap 8.

Steyn then tried everything to get back past Van Vurst, and the last 5 laps provided some spectacular offensive and defensive driving from this pair. The rest of the flied were no longer in contention. Chip van Vurst held of Danny Steyn for the win by a hair.

Watkins Glen National Spec Miata Race. Danny Steyn's horrific crash into Mike Collins.


In the first race of the Double National Spec Miata race at Watkins Glen in July 2010, Steyn has a horrific crash. This video starts after the restart of the race after the first Full Course Yellow.

Coming through the bus stop, Collins loses control ahead of Steyn and ends up turned sideways on the racing line. Steyn is following Bednarz and cannot see Collins car until too late. Fortunately Bednarz's car rips off Collins front right wheel and this becomes the launching pad for Steyn's car and prevents the full impact into Collins's car.

Steyn sets new Sebring Full Course Spec Miata Lap Record.


After a mid-race Full Course Yellow, Danny Steyn passes Chip Van Vurst and Andrew Charbonneau to set a new Sebring Full Course Track Record in Spec Miata with a time of 2.36.915.
