Danny Steyn in his OPM built 2002 VVT set the new Watkins Glen Spec Miata lap record on the 3rd lap of the BF Goodrich Majors Supertour race this past weekend. Steyn’s time of 2min 15.917 beat the 5 year old previous lap record set by Steve Gorriaran back in 2009.
This is Steyn’s SECOND lap record of the year and the FOURTH lap record set by Rossini powered cars during the 2014 season.
Steyn finished 6th in Race 1 and was lying 7th in Race 2 when he was knocked off the track in Turn 9. Fellow Rossini driver Ralle Rookey had a great weekend and was a front runner in both races but faded to 13th in Race 1 and 11th in Race2.
