Call it the perfect storm. Call it a confluence of conditions. Whatever you want to call it, conditions were slick.
Connor DeYoung reported for duty in Spec Miata with an old set of Toyo RA1 rain tires at Carolina Motorsports Park during the cold snap that blanketed Texas with snow. In South Carolina, it was cold and rainy and fresh pavement on the track made it difficult to pick out puddles because the entire track was shiny.
It wasn’t just DeYoung, who said nearly everyone in the class went sliding off track somewhere at some point during the race. The good news is that no body panels or cars were harmed in the making of this video.
