Mazda MX-5 Driver Takes Porsches, BMWs, Hondas To Task: 15 Passes On First Lap

Follow Nelson

There are many things that make oval-track racing more conducive to huge audiences than road racing, not least of which is that the track is always visible to people in the stands, and so, too, are the passes. Fortunately the Internet exists, to let us see acts of greatness like this first lap from CJ Wilson Racing's Steven McAleer at the Continental Tire Series race at Sebring last weekend.

The video above shows some skilled traffic reading, masterful car handling, and a brilliant combination of patience and opportunism. For the full breakdown of each pass in McAleer's own words, head over to Racer.

In the meantime, sit back and watch how a lightweight, underpowered car can slice and dice a field full of faster, more powerful machines.
