The MR2 is just a toy car for me replacing my bikes. Had I wanted to be super-competitive in this endeavor I would have sprung for a Miata.


I haven't raced a bike either but I think a lot of the principles are similar including trail braking, oversteer, understeer and lines just adapted to the vehicle you are in whether it is a bike or car, front, rear or AWD. I also think an MR2 with the right tires could be very competitive. I think you are all set to have a lot of fun and success.
