After a few local autocross events to gain valuable seat time, Chris Harvey made the 10 hour drive to Lincoln, NE for the 2nd Tire Rack SCCA Pro Solo event of 2010 driving the Grassroots Motorsports/Tire Rack Project STR Mazda MX-5. The site is the same used for the year-end Pro Solo Finale and National Championship events, making this a great advanced look at how the car will do at the big dance later this year.
Call it a coming out party, or call it a battle. Either way, Chris was challenged by Brandon Davis in his lightweight ’99 Miata all weekend. Keeping everyone in suspense, Chris was able to pull out the win on his final run on each side of the course. As they say, it ain’t over ‘til it’s over. In addition to scoring victory, Chris learned a lot about how the car performs in the heat of battle and the direction we need to go as the project develops.
