Nor Cal NASA Opener at Sonoma Raceway, California was an exciting one for Haag Performance. Spec Miata racer Kyle Loustaunau won First Place both Saturday and Sunday February 9 & 10, 2013, with a time of 1.55.2 on Saturday and a 1.55.6 on Sunday.
Second Place went to Craig Evans both Saturday & Sunday with a 1.55.4 and a 1.55.6. Third Place went to Duncan Ellis. Congratulations to you all! What a way to start the 2013 season.
It was a great start for Craig Evans this new 2012 racing season. Craig finished first both Saturday and Sunday at Infineon Raceway Sonoma racing NASA February 11 & 12. Closely followed by Jami Florance and Charley Hayes finishing in third. Both Evans and Hayes run our Haag Performance 1.6 L Spec Miata race engines.
The end of the racing season means one thing: points are added up and champions are crowned. We’re excited to announce that two of our motors built by Mike Haag claimed season championships at the final 2010 San Francisco Region SCCA race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in October! Driving a 1999 Mazda Miata sponsored by PacificSignaling.com, Wilson Powell from Danville, CA claimed the ITS title over thirteen other drivers with a 50-point margin at season end. The championship comes in his first season since converting to ITS specifications during the 2009 season!
Earning his first championship, Brian Ghidinelli from San Rafael, CA piloted his MotorsportReg.com/Team SafeRacer 1999 Mazda Miata to an 8th win in 13 races clinching the Spec Miata championship ahead of 78 other points earners in the San Francisco Region.
We here at Haag Performance are focused on building fast and reliable engines (and transmissions and differentials!) so our customers can focus on winning races. Congratulations to Will and Brian on their consistency and great results!

Spec Miata #12 driver Brian Ghidinelli continues to showcase the power and torque of his 1999 Mazda Miata engine in San Francisco Region SCCA’s regional championship series. Taking both checkered flags in Rounds 7 and 8 at Thunderhill Raceway in July and two of three race wins at Rounds 9 and 10 at Infineon Raceway, Ghidinelli headed into Rounds 11 and 12 at Thunderhill with lots of momentum. Qualifying on pole for both races, a spin in race one saw a 6th place finish and an error-free race on Sunday brought home Ghidinelli’s 7th win of the 2010 season and a slim lead in the regional championship.
Next event is the double points season finale at Laguna Seca in October which will crown the 2010 Regional Champion. Will it be a Haag Performance motor on the top step? Wait and see…
Rounds five and six of the San Francisco Region SCCA regional championship were held this weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Two Haag powered cars found their way to the top of the result sheet with wins in Spec Miata by Brian Ghidinelli driving the #12 MotorsportReg.com / SafeRacer car and Super Touring Under by Wilson Powell driving the #77 PacificSignaling.com Mazda Miata. Ghidinelli also scored pole position for race six. Both drivers also scored a podium finish with third in their respective classes for race five.
The next local event will be at Thunderhill Raceway June 24-26.
