Good-Win Racing Mazda Performance Parts

Meet the Good-Win Racing Team

Brian and Andi Goodwin
Our primary goal is to help owners like you dial up the FUN. We seek to accomplish that goal by offering a wide range of quality parts and good advice with which you can add some extra fun to your Mazda/Fiat/BRZ.

We race what we sell as a means of constant testing to the limits so we can better help even the guy just driving these cars to work with a decision about what will last and what works for daily driving vs track weekends, etc. We live in sunny San Diego, and while we spend lots of our free time out on the track, you might also find us designing new products, driving local fun roads with the top down, on road trips in one of our project cars. We've been in business since the late 90's so we can answer many of your questions about these fun cars.

Meet the core team:

Brian Goodwin, Founder/CEO

Brian Goodwin

When folks ask me what I do, I usually tell them that I am a toy maker, because I make toys for big boys and girls. When I run through the gears on any of our project cars to hear the motor sing, the exhaust burble, and feel the way the car stays flat in the corners with our suspension bits, it makes me laugh out loud with joy and I want to help customers find the same joy with the right mix of mods for their toys.

Good-Win Racing is the hobby that became my life. My favorite bedtime story as a small child was "Go, Dog. Go!" by P.D.Eastman, I just loved the dogs racing cars. I raced everything I could as a kid from skateboards and BMX bikes to Go-Karts and Snowboards. Then came motorcycles and cars and my first roadster: a 1978 Fiat 124 that I purchased for just $50, and it actually ran! I rebuilt that first Fiat 124 from junkyard finds and spent Sundays driving it through the mountains for the pure joy of winding up the motor to full song and sliding it around on 'upgraded' 14x5.5 alloy wheels from a later version of the 124. Later my first Mazda Miata arrived as a newer version of that roadster experience which gave me much of the same back roads joy and I could reliably autocross and track race it. Started the company when I could not find the parts needed to go faster and make it more uniquely my Miata.

My first 1994 Mazda Miata racked up well over 100,000 miles of combined use on and off the race track and in autocross. The race log on my 99 Miata had over 25,000 miles of just track time, and that was about half the mileage on the car when I sold it to start playing with a 2003 Miata Club Sport. Then came another 94 Miata, and then a 97 for STS class autocross, and then a 2001 Miata, and then a 2004 RX8 for STU class, several 2006 and 2007 MX5 Miatas, 2016, 2017, and then a 2017 Fiat 124 completes the full circle. With each new toy the goals are similar, make it more fast and fun!

Odd fact about Brian: Brian LOVES particular chocolate milk. You will always find chocolate milk in our fridge and with us when we race. It serves as a great recovery drink by providing quick carbs and protein to replenish muscles and rehydrate.

Andi Goodwin, CFO & Marketing

Andi Goodwin When I married Brian I was fascinated with his cool cars and the fun he had autocrossing and on the track, but never considered it as something I could do. Once I became part of the Good-Win Racing team I just had to try it, and boy am I hooked! Talk about an adrenaline rush! I discovered a passion for racing, car control and general FUN driving.

My first Miata really changed my entire view on cars and why we have them. Before my Miata I thought driving was just to get from A to B... but now I love to put the top down and go for a drive just for the thrill of shifting gears and charging the corners.

When I am not out driving you can find me with a group of friends enjoying a good meal and fine wine...or out surfing with Brian and enjoying the California sunshine.

Odd fact about Andi: I have super small narrow feet; Brian says I stole them from a 6 year old! However, they happen to be perfect for driving race cars, who knows maybe I was born to race all along.

Ryan Passey, Customer Service, Design, Welding, Parts Prototyping, and more.

Ryan Passey When I bought my first Miata I had no idea the road I was starting down. A decade later, I'm still having the time of my life with these fantastic cars and with the entire family of miata owners and racers that I've met as a result.

Passing the knowledge that I've gained on to other enthusiasts and designing new parts to cater to our community is my way of 'paying it forward' for all those who were influential and helped me along the way.

I have a background in fabrication and racing, and I still have my first Miata which is now a bit of a Frankenstein after all these years, but I still drive a (mostly) stock miata on a daily basis.

Odd fact about Ryan:
I love running outdoors. To me there are few things as refreshing, and it\x92s how I get away from the business of life, find my focus, and recharge.

Just wanted to thank you guys for the great stuff and great work done on my MX5 club yesterday. I could feel the difference in sound and performance right away! It drives and corners awesome now. Can't wait to tell my friends about you guys. I'll be keeping an eye on your web site for other goodies and events as well. Can't wait to try my new suspension out on a auto cross. Will definitely be trying it on some twisty roads this weekend. Just can't wipe that smile off my face when driving this car. Thanks again guys!

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.
