On Feb 3/4 we took out our 99 NB project Miata (codename: Princess Bubblegum) to NOLA for its first track shake-down at a NASA HPDE event. Being still new to HPDE and NASA, Chris Gervais and I both ran HPDE1 with Chris Tuttle (King Tut) as our instructor.  Our goals for this session included learning the balance of the Miata, threshold braking without ABS, and learning a couple different lines for different situations.
