Racing the Rock DVD, from Flyin Miata

A full-length feature on Miatas racing in a major competition? Yes!
In 2011, hundreds of Miata owners banded together to support FM’s two-car team as they took on the daunting Targa Newfoundland. One car had the experienced team of Keith and Janel Tanner, battling for the win in the fast Open division with a V8 Miata. The other car had the rookie team of Brandon Fitch and Zach Bowman tackling the complex Grand Touring division. This is the story of that race and the people behind it.
Filmed and edited by professional filmmakers Adam and Tracy Costa, this is no home video. It’s a great look into the Miata community and what it takes to survive “the Ironman of Motorsport”. It’s similar to Dust to Glory and Truth in 24. The film was partially financed by Kickstarter contributions, making it a community-supported film about a community-supported race effort.
