Spec MX-5 Challenge presented by Toyo Tires – known as THE Driver Development Series – races on many of the bucket list, pro tracks such as Road America, Sonoma Raceway, Circuit of The Americas, Sebring International Raceway, and others, offering the most per-race contingency awards in club racing, with the collective payout in the six-figures. And with relatively low operating costs thanks in part to the reliability and durability of the Toyo spec tire, PAGID brake pads, Penske Racing Shocks, as well as the discounted pricing, the value of the series has never been higher.
To keep the momentum going, Mazda Motorsports has worked with series partners to offer one of the best deals on the parts for both new builds and NC MX-5 conversions.
“We are very close to achieving critical mass in the spec series,” commented David Cook, Mazda Motorsports’ business development manager responsible for Mazda’s grassroots racing program. “We set out to have 15+ cars in each SMX race, while offering at least five events in the West, East, Midwest, and South, with some crossover. We are right there with all the events in the East, Midwest, and South, outside of one event, and the West is coming on nicely,” continued Cook. With another 20-30 cars built before the next race season, we will achieve our tipping point, looking to add even more events in 2024, on our way to achieving our long-term goal for Spec MX-5 to become a national class in both NASA and SCCA racing.”
