Well I had a great autocross event with Triad Sports Car Club, which by the way puts on a great event. It was HOT with Temperatures in the mid-nineties. Like most locations we go to there was little shade to be had, and none in the paddock!
I took the car through tech with the KEENiTop on, had them check it along with the car and passed tech. While other competitors were throwing anything available over the car seats, actually sat in the car out of the sun. Even had a slight light breeze! Now my Miata is race only so no AC, getting rid of the factory softtop made a weight difference.
Just sitting with the factory top up I was only hotter in the car ! I always prefer the top down and this top gave me the best of both worlds! Oh yea while not that important I finished 1st out 3 entries in class
