Steyn’s 2013 season continued in fine fashion with Steyn nailing down four poles! Steyn got both STL, one ProIT pole and one Spec Miata pole that was under the existing Spec Miata Road Atlanta lap record. The field included four Spec Miata National Champions, Jim Drago, Steve Gorriaran, Yiannis Tsounis, and Todd Lamb.
In Race 1 Danny Steyn and Jim Drago had an epic battle. Steyn and Drago worked together to gap the field, and Steyn led every lap except the last lap, when Drago got by to edge Steyn by 12/100ths on the final lap. Fellow Rossini powered driver Andrew Carbonell finished third.
In Race 2 Carbonell got to the front, with Yiannis Tsounis, Stefan Tisseront, Jim Drago and Steve Gorriaran and Steyn in close contention. There were several changes for position, but eventually Carbonell and Steyn broke away from the group behind. On the last lap Carbonell was able to draft by Steyn for the win with Dillon MacHavern in 3rd.
Andrew Carbonell makes the last lap pass on Danny Steyn at the Road Atlanta Double Majors Race 2!
