Hi Everyone,
My name is Tom Kaminski, the Utah Region SpecZ director. I want to let everyone know excited we are to have the SZ class growing so much in this region. I have been hearing of some cars being sold off due to lack of class members, people saying the class is dead, etc and just want to to share how "viral" the class is growing here and how it SHOULD be spreading elsewhere.

These cars are great and if you want a cheap way to race, SZ is the way to go. They have been proven to be reliable and FAST. I run 2.09's on outer loop, 1:44s on East, and 1:41s on West, and im only 1 year into the class.

We are already outnumbering spec miata on most of our race weekends, which was the initial goal :)
We have around 10 licensed drivers/cars, with 4 being built, and 3 HPDE SpecZ's, so 2016 we expect to have 10+ every race.

There is a lot of SZ momentum here and just want to spread the word that we were ridiculously successful in implementing the class here in Utah.

If anyone has any questions for me, dont hesitate to ask.

Hi Tom,

Great seeing you again and racing with the new guys a couple of weekends ago! Like Tom said, SZ has gone viral in the Utah region. Besides all the cars that Tom and Matt Guiver have built/are building, there are two other shops that are specializing in building Spec Z's. It's really cool to see.

Looking forward to racing with you & Arthur (and hopefully more) at High Plains Raceway here in Colorado in October!

Glad it's still ramping in Utah. The scene looked awesome (and fast) when we were out there for the six hour enduro in August. Too bad in California it never took off. Anyone looking to get in cheap and quick, I have a buddy selling a spec z ready car in the Bay Area. All it needs is the suspension and, just coincidentally, I have a (gently) used set we could throw in for the right price. Delivery is also on the table. Who's interested?

Yeah, it's crazy how Utah region exploded with Spec Z's! It's so much fun racing against so many Z's every race...

Any of you guys heading down for west nats in 2016.
I would enter if we had some car counts plus I know of one other spec z in California, that would make it 2 on top of any cars from outside California.
