Danny Steyn podiums both days at the Sebring SCCA Majors
January 17th, 2015
Sebring Majors always draws a huge field of Spec Miata drivers and this
year was no different. 70 Spec Miata drivers entered the event, and
there were over 20 Rossini powered drivers in the field.
Race 1, Dillon Machavern and Danny Steyn managed to break away
from the pack almost immediately and ran nose-to-tail for the entire
event with Machavern leading the entire race, except when he went 4 off
in Turn 5. Andrew Carbonnel finished 3rd. Rossini drivers Selin Rollan
finished 6th with Mark Gibbons in 13th.
Race 2 was a very intense race between Steyn, Machavern and
Carbonnel. Steyn got into the lead immediately and led the first four
laps. Thereafter the lead changed several times. The race for the win
came down to the last lap with Machavern triumphing over Carbonnel and
Steyn. Rossini drivers Rollan and Gibbons finished 6th and 10th
