Championship Winning Spec Miata For Sale – $19,000

The car that Justin Hall won the 2004 San Francisco Region Spec Miata championship was driven in 2005 by Brian Ghidinelli in his rookie season to 6th in the overall points including a 3rd at Laguna and 2nd at Thunderhill with the fastest lap of the race.

Car was updated by Jason Hoover in 2006 with a rebuilt differential, new clutch, new shocks and fresh Hoover Speed setup. Due to a busy work life, the car has seen a limited 2006 schedule with two 2nd and one 3rd place qualifying efforts and despite some poor luck in the races, a 4th place at Laguna in April and a 3rd place at the Infineon national/regional a couple of weeks ago. New plans for 2007 make passing along this complete package to someone with more time the best option.

The car has the best of everything and the buyer will receive a *very* robust set of AIM data with a 2:08.1 at Thunderhill, a 1:55.2 at Infineon and 1:47.9 at Laguna. Sale will include video from each track as available, coaching for how to maximize the data for personal improvement and a day of knowledge transfer with detailed track notes at the local track of your choice prior to November 1st. click here to see in-car footage from Infineon Regional (110mb, ~25 mins) at

If you want to eliminate the car as the variable in your personal success formula, you can hop in and take this car to the podium at the next race. Contact Brian Ghidinelli at work – 415.462.5603 or by email at brian (at) MotorsportReg (dot) com.

Car can be delivered to the upcoming August Regional or the Infineon Regional in September.

Car is light – I weigh 140lbs and use 50lbs of ballast and a couple gallons of gas to make 2300lb minimum weight. If you’re carrying a few extra pounds, this will help you run at or near the class minimum. A few additional pounds could be removed from car if needed for greater savings. Don’t underestimate the importance of running light – it impacts acceleration and braking!

Includes my “special” bullet cam contrast and brightness fix for improved video quality and padded box for camera.
  • Radio system + antenna and two 5-watt radios. Allows driver control of the radio while buckled in and runs off switched 12v car power so no charging batteries!
