Rossini Racing Engines - Championship Winning Spec Miata Engines


Hi, I am Mike Rossini, the founder of Rossini Racing Products. If you drive a Spec Miata, then I am here to help you in any way I can. I don't mind what you are racing, or whose engine you are using, if you need help just let me know and I will do my best to assist you.

Not only am I the voice that you get on the other end of the line when you call, but I am the same guy that will be working on your engines. I personally do all the work.

Rossini Racing is a small company, totally geared towards the club racer. I personally stand behind all of my Spec Miata Engines and I care about each and every one of my customers. You will find my Spec Miata engines racing in SCCA, NASA, FARA and many other organizations. And you will find the Rossini powered drivers of standing on the top steps of winners podiums around the country.

See our Spec Miata Championship results below. This should give you an idea of what you can expect from our engines. And read my engine manifesto below!

This is what you can expect when you buy one of my race engines

  • I believe that every racer should have access to the very best of my Spec Miata Engines. I do not believe in cherry picking all the best pieces and setting them aside for my top drivers. What you will get from me is EXACTLY the same as they are getting.
  • I believe in personal attention and 100% of all the work is done by me personally
  • We do NOT cheat. Every one of my Spec Miata engines will pass tech. They are not "tech-shed legal", they are straight up legal, and within the spirit of the class. We build to the absolute limit of the spec and no further.
  • I don't believe in sub contracting the machining work to any third-party machine shops - I do it all personally in-house.
  • I don't believe in hiring young labor to assemble your engine for you. You can rest easy knowing that I will be the guy putting it all together, assuring you of the tightest tolerances, the best fit and the best possible overall performance.
  • I believe in charging a fair price for my work and I do not believe in gouging my customers.
  • I believe that your Spec Miata engine should be absolutely reliable. I have front runners in the Spec Miata Nationals that have campaigned my engines for more than a season without refreshing (more than 60 hours of race time).
  • So call me today to get you into a really fast Spec Miata, SSM, ITA or other Mazda engine. You can be assured of my personal attention.

Rossini drivers shine at the 2015 NOLA Majors event in New Orleans Louisiana

March 9th, 2015


Rossini drivers Danny Steyn and Selin Rollan were on fine form at the NOLA track just outside New Orleans Louisiana. For both drivers it was their first time at the track so they were both at a real disadvantage against the drivers that had raced and tested at the track prior to the all important Majors race with one of the deepest fields ever assembled for a non-runoffs event.

Despite their disadvantage Steyn went to the front of the grid to clench the pole position with a time of 1:58.071, almost three tenths faster then the 2nd place qualifier Jim Drago. Rollan also rose to the occasion with an 8th place on the gird.

In Race 1, Steyn barely avoided the Turn 1 carnage, and after the restart led almost the entire race. Coming into the last three turns Steyn was in the lead but over drove the Turn 12 and ended up in 3rd place for his 5th podium in 5 Majors races. Rollan was running in 4th place when he lost a brake caliper and managed to limp home in 15th place.

For Race 2, Steyn started on the pole again and led the first three laps before falling back to 6th place after being bumped off line in Turn 6. Rollan made it up to 3rd place and ran in the top four for much of the race, Steyn started fighting back and drove his Rossini powered Spec Miata back to 3rd place only to lose rd by 3/1000ths of a second at the line.
