Rossini Racing Engines - Championship Winning Spec Miata Engines


Hi, I am Mike Rossini, the founder of Rossini Racing Products. If you drive a Spec Miata, then I am here to help you in any way I can. I don't mind what you are racing, or whose engine you are using, if you need help just let me know and I will do my best to assist you.

Not only am I the voice that you get on the other end of the line when you call, but I am the same guy that will be working on your engines. I personally do all the work.

Rossini Racing is a small company, totally geared towards the club racer. I personally stand behind all of my Spec Miata Engines and I care about each and every one of my customers. You will find my Spec Miata engines racing in SCCA, NASA, FARA and many other organizations. And you will find the Rossini powered drivers of standing on the top steps of winners podiums around the country.

See our Spec Miata Championship results below. This should give you an idea of what you can expect from our engines. And read my engine manifesto below!

This is what you can expect when you buy one of my race engines

  • I believe that every racer should have access to the very best of my Spec Miata Engines. I do not believe in cherry picking all the best pieces and setting them aside for my top drivers. What you will get from me is EXACTLY the same as they are getting.
  • I believe in personal attention and 100% of all the work is done by me personally
  • We do NOT cheat. Every one of my Spec Miata engines will pass tech. They are not "tech-shed legal", they are straight up legal, and within the spirit of the class. We build to the absolute limit of the spec and no further.
  • I don't believe in sub contracting the machining work to any third-party machine shops - I do it all personally in-house.
  • I don't believe in hiring young labor to assemble your engine for you. You can rest easy knowing that I will be the guy putting it all together, assuring you of the tightest tolerances, the best fit and the best possible overall performance.
  • I believe in charging a fair price for my work and I do not believe in gouging my customers.
  • I believe that your Spec Miata engine should be absolutely reliable. I have front runners in the Spec Miata Nationals that have campaigned my engines for more than a season without refreshing (more than 60 hours of race time).
  • So call me today to get you into a really fast Spec Miata, SSM, ITA or other Mazda engine. You can be assured of my personal attention.

Rossini powered drivers dominate the entire weekend at Daytona, qualifying on the pole and winning every session

August 8th, 2016

At one point Rossini drivers were running 1st through 4th. In the photo above Pardus leads Rollan, ahead of Steyn and Malatesta

This past weekend at Daytona International Speedway, Rossini powered drivers were the class of the field, qualifying up front and winning every race.

Preston Pardus teamed up with Selin Rollan and together they were unstoppable all weekend. Preston triumphed over Selin on Saturday and Selin took the win over Preston on Sunday. In Race 2, Danny Steyn and Nick Malatesta teamed up and were running up front with the Rolan and Pardus, until Steyn's car quit with electrical issues.

Malatesta did a phenomenal run to the end withoug a team mate and hung on for 3rd.

Daytona is a horsepower track and to have our engines dominate this weekend is not only a tribute to our engines, but especially to our drivers.

This is the definition of a photo finish. Selin Rollan anbrely pips Preston Pardus for the win on Sunday Race 2

Michael Carter serves notice that he will be a force to be reckoned with at the upcoming SCCA Runoffs

August 8th, 2016

Young 16 year-old Micahel Carter took the time to travel to Mid Ohio for this past weekend IT Spectacular, purely to get extra seat time at the track that will be used for the 2016 Runoffs.

Due to budgetary constraints, Michael seldom does the test day, but his time he did, and used the time to play with different setups for this unusual track. And it paid off.

Running against the local track favorite, Jsutin Hille, Michael was able to not only hang with him in each race, but finally in Sunday's Race 3, Michael was able to triumph over Justin.

The pair put on an exhibition of clean close racing, showing each other a great deal of respect. Any drivers wanting to win at the Runoffs are definitely going to have to contend with Carter and Hille.

Below are two in-car camera views from each driver, showing the amazingly tight racing

Ryan Fisher and Danny Steyn set back-to-back track records at the inaugural race at Dominion Raceway Virginia

July 25th, 2016

Ryan Fisher with his Dominion Raceway Race 1 winner's trophy

Young Ryan Fisher triumphed over his older and more experienced team mate, Danny Steyn to win the very first Spec Miata race at Dominion Raceway in Virginia.

Ever more remarkable is that Fisher completed his first Grand Slam, qualifying on the pole, leading every lap, and setting a new track record in the process.

In Sunday’s race, Steyn who qualified on the pole, was able to lead most of the laps until traffic skunked him and he was passed by Bryan Henderson and Ryan Fisher.

Fisher made a slight bobble and Steyn was able to pass him for 2nd with Fisher finishing 3rd. Steyn set a new lap record of 1.36.933 in the process.

Other Rossini drivers on form included Duncan Ellis, Adam Molaver, Xavier Calderon, Jason Connole, Adam Culley and others.

Michael Carter races to back-to-back victories at Road Atlanta in a competitive Spec Miata field

July 25th, 2016

Young 16 year old Michael Carter, seen here with his dad Mickey, is turning out to be a force to be reckoned with in Spec Miata racing.

At Road Atlanta this past weekend, Carter triumphed in back-to-back victories in a very deep field at Road Atlanta. In Race 1, Carter started in 3rd and had a great fight with John Carter (no relation) and Cliff Brown, winning by less than a second over Brown and Case Crowell

Sunday’s race 2 was even more eventful with Michael driving off in Turn 1 on the second lap while leading. He re-entered in 4th place, and hunted down Case Crowell, John Carter and Cliff Brown to get the win by hust over a second.

Michael has now won six out of the six SARRC races he has entered!

Take a look at Michael Carter’s in car video from Saturday's Race 1
