Weekend Edition – Sportscar Breakfast Club: The Miatas

At the event, Miatas were rife. I can’t blame the drivers, since the simple, rear-drive roadster is close to the very concept of a sportscar. Light, eager to please, balanced. Only the endless reliability and the undeniable ubiquituousness play against them, but it’s very easy to make a Miata, or an MX-5, or an Eunos Roadster look and feel exactly like your own. No two Miatas here were exactly the same.

This burgundy one with a carbon-fiber hardtop proudly wore an Eunos badge. It was a Japanese RHD car, but I don’t know if it had swam here via England.

NB:s were present, too, and a rollbar signified the sporting attitude.

A nice combination, isn’t it? American brawn next to sky blue Japanese delicacy.

This one looked quite like the ideal one. Note the angry bird hanging off a tow hook.

Some turbo power to brighten your day. I think the mentioned power output had the number four in it.

The German Swiss import MX-5 of guest contributor Lauri. The car is very well sorted out.
