About Ryan Passey
The HyperMiata embodies my personal journey to always push forward; broaden my skillset, improve the car, and get faster and faster. It also represents a whole community of enthusiasts who believe a Miata has the potential to compete with giants in Time Attack. A decade ago I wrenched on this same car in an apartment parking lot and raced it on the weekends. This car provided me a canvas to learn tuning, fabrication, driving, and more. The hobby has evolved over the years into a career and these days I get to have fun with Miata projects daily as Team Principal at Goodwin Racing. Through it all, this car remains the one I push my limits the furthest with and continue to pursue ever lower lap times.
