Tia Bobia’s Special Edition 2003 Miata

Miata Special Edition emblem

Diane’s sister & fellow Miata autocross enthusiast, Tia, came out to play at both recent SASCA AutoX events, #6 & #7.  Her 2003 Mazda Miata is a Special Edition model in beautiful Strato Blue Mica.  I hadn’t seen one of these before – it was striking!

Here's Tia Bobia, assessing her "Dori"...

And here's Diane, considering autocross competiton strategy...

Tia & her sister Diane, are both enthusiastic NB Miata owners.  I have already profiled Diane’s 1999 Miata 10AE, here.  Tia’s exquisite blue 2003 Miata is named “Dori”.  The Strato Blue Mica paint looks like different colors in different lighting.

Like her sister, Tia’s been busy making her sweet Miata faster.

This car is well preserved & being well enjoyed – she’s had others co-drive it, too.

Tia went so fast, I wasn’t able to take a very good “@ speed” shot . . . oh well.

Tia @ speed !

Racing Ready wants Karlino to be showcased by others on the web, too!
