The Pacific Northwest Spec Miata (SM) Championship Tour is a group of drivers and racing enthusiasts that just like to have fun with our Spec Miatas. We try to create an atmosphere of friendly competition and inclusion of all people interested. We started in 2015. We just completed our 8th year of "The Tour".
This informal Tour is the brainchild of multi-time Spec Miata champions Will Schrader and Ken Sutherland. After 2014 they realized there was too much emphasis on winning. They concluded that getting back to the basics of enjoying close competition with friends on the track and laughing about all the fun things about racing Miatas was how they wanted to spend much of their free time. The Tour was launched in 2015 and we are all lucky to benefit from it!
This is an informal tour aimed at getting back to the grassroots of SM racing by keeping the costs down and emphasizing having fun racing. Anyone who races Spec Miata in the Pacific Northwest area (and of course family and friends) is welcome to join the Tour - contact us at the bottom of this page! The goal of this tour is to create the best racing memories of close competition with old and new friends with the final results being secondary to the fun that was had. We are confident that track tips and car preparation plus setup tips will flow freely. [...Some advice might even be good....]
We have simple rules that fit on one page. We try to set up the "Tour" schedule to spread the racing out and provide a mix of tracks. We knock down any walls between drivers and sanctioning organizations. Join us and get back the “I remember why I race and it pegs the fun meter” feeling!
