8 Hours of Road Atlanta
« on: November 15, 2012, 11:09:13 PM »
I going to attend the NASA 8 hour race at Road Atlanta on November 30 as a "member of the crew" of a PartsGroup Motorsports MX5 or two.

Tom Neel drives an MX5 in the Playboy Cup that is fielded and sponsored by his company the PartsGroup.  After he saw my images of the VIR Playboy Cup race, including these images of Tom:









Tom and I became "Facebook friends" and he is currently using one of my VIR images at the top of the PartsGroup facebook page:

Tom and other PartsGroup Motorsports drivers are going to be participating in an 8 Hour NASA "Santa's Toy Run" race at Road Atlanta on Friday November 30.  Tom and the red 2006 MX5 pictured below will be participating as defending champs of the event and I am going to join his "crew" as team photographer to document the 8 hours.  The team may also be running a second Miata in the 8 hours if Tom is able to find one more paying driver.

Had a great time on Friday hanging out with Tom Neel's PartsGroup Motorsports Team at the NASA Santa's Toy Run 8 Hours at Road Atlanta.  The team took 2nd in class and 7th overall.  Would likely have done better if not for considerable (and expensive) tire troubles.  Photos to come soon.
