Mazda scores numerous victories over two days in the third round of the SCCA Hoosier Racing Tire Super Tour
There were plenty of great SCCA moments on Saturday, March 3, at NOLA Motorsports Park during the Hoosier Racing Tire Super Tour, but a special one came from Danny Steyn. While he had a less than optimal Super Touring Lite outing earlier in the day due to unforeseen mechanical issues, the Florida driver bounced back strong to claim the Spec Miata victory in his No. 39 Adept Studios/Rossini Engines/OPM Autosports/G-LOC Brakes Mazda Miata.
“Exactly a week ago, I turned 60 years old,” Steyn pointed out. “I’ve had this goal for a long time that I wanted to win a U.S. Majors or Hoosier Super Tour Spec Miata race at the age of 60. And one week into 60, I pulled it off. So, I’m really thrilled I could make this happen.” The next day he avenged his STL loss by taking the win in his Miata, but Michael Carter claimed the SM victory.
Mark Weber came from St. Louis and took home a pair of F Production wins in his Miata, holding off fellow Miata drivers Weber Manning (Saturday) and Kyle Baker (Sunday). “I had a great start; I couldn’t have drawn it up any better,” said Weber after his second victory of the weekend. “I got an early lead and had somebody to race with. I knew I could hold them off. It was a perfect day.”
