 TIME:  6:30 PM Ice Cream served – Concert to follow

 LOCATION:        Parma Heights Baptist Church, Cross of Hope Pavilion, 8971 West Ridgewood Dr., Parma Heights, OH  (across from the Shoppes at Parma) (Click for map)

Two of our Northcoast Miata Club members are fired up about FREE Ice cream and jazz music.  So, in a very kind gesture, Tim Hunsicker and Ron Nelson, who are both members of the Parma Heights Baptist Church, have invited our club members to a free evening of ice cream and music.  The only requirement is that you bring your own comfy chair to enjoy this outdoor event.  As Tim and Ron need to plan for the number of people to expect, members are asked to register by 8/6/21.  There will be a sign-up sheet at the July meeting, or you may sign up by E-mail or call Daniel Splichal and leaving a message at 701-330-5631. 

Take care & safe travels,

Daniel Splichal,
President, NMC

Miata Reunion – Oct 23-24/2021

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The 2021 Miata Reunion (click for video announcement) will be held at the New Jersey Motorsports Park on Oct 23 -24, 2021 (click for event website).  New Jersey Motorsports Park  (click for track website) is located at 8000 Dividing Creek Rd., Millville, NJ 08332  (directions) which is about a 7 – 8 hour drive from the Cleveland area. 

The events will be on the Lightning Raceway which is a 1.9 mile 10 corner circuit within the Motorsports Park.  It is fast and challenging featuring some of the most interesting and dramatic corners and elevation changes in the park. The 20-acre paddock area has a 4-acre skidpad and autocross area.

The 2020 event at Road Atlanta was canceled so here is the next opportunity to gather with fellow Miata owners from all over.  The last event in 2019 had about 1,600 people – so Miata’s at the Gap times 2 plus a racetrack and more activities. 

Closer to the event there will be details posted about members going to the event.

Autocross season is getting started soon and we’re just about ready to go. If you’re interested, please remember that we have loaner helmets (with sanitary head socks for helmet users) for our club members’ use. To secure a helmet for an event, contact Rich Velardo ncm.competition@northcoast-miata.com to be sure there’s a helmet for you at the event…there’s not enough storage room in a Miata to bring all of the helmets along to every event if they’re not going to be used.
 
We autox with the Akron Sports Car Club, if you’re ready to go for the whole season don’t forget to join ASCC, go to:  https://www.motorsportreg.com to join. The cost for new members is $65 and gets you lower entry fees, $25 gift certificates for Summit Racing (use that to help pay for a new helmet) and you’ll get an option to pay $10/event to escape cone chasing duty. Find ASCC here;  https://www.facebook.com/AkronSportsCarClub
