Steyn qualifies on pole, but only manages 4th at Road Atlanta National, and gets 2nd in Pro-IT

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!

The OPM team worked to replace the engine for the races, but unfortunately the spare engine was not up to the task. Steyn finished a close 4th in the National and 2nd in the Pro-IT. He did however score the fastest race laps in both races.
