Live Stream Announced for Lime Rock Park’s Inaugural MiataCon
After a successful five-day live stream of Historic Festival earlier this fall, Lime Rock Park will once again offer fans a free streaming option with a Glimpse of MiataCon powered by Mazda of Milford (Oct. 27-28).
The ‘Glimpse of MiataCon’ camera will be perched below the pedestrian bridge, allowing fans to witness every generation of the Miata MX-5 race down the Sam Posey Straight. The one-camera live stream promises an unfiltered, unedited and unadulterated authentic experience of the inaugural even for fans at home.
The Voice of Lime Rock Park Greg Rickes and statistician Craig Robertson will lend their expertise to guide viewers through the racing, sharing history and stories behind the cars and their drivers as they lap Lime Rock Park. The live stream will begin daily at 9:00 a.m. ET.
MiataCon promises to be an action-packed weekend honoring the Mazda Miata. This inclusive grassroots race weekend will feature three different Miata race groups: Spec/Global MX-5, Spec Miata, and an Exhibition group which will include any race-prepped MIata that doesn’t fit into the first two groups. Also featured on the weekend will be a number of Miata-only HPDE sessions. Practice and qualifying will fill Friday’s on-track activity, with Saturday opening with sprint races from each group and culminating with an hour-long multi-group enduro.
Friday’s activities will also feature “MiataX” – Miata-only autocross lapping sessions on the FCP Euro Proving Grounds. A limited number of MiataX spots will be available via the MiataCon registration page.
Miata owners from all generations will have the chance to come together to celebrate their love for the Japanese sportscar. The weekend will feature five different Miata Car Corrals where like-minded Miata enthusiasts can park amongst each other and participate in parade laps around the iconic LIme Rock circuit. The different corral classifications include: NA Miata (1989- 1997), NB Miata (1998 – 2005), NC Miata (2006 – 2015), ND Miata (2016 – present) and JDM Sportscars.
