Special Value Package: Test Drive A Spec MX-5 Car At COTA In February

By Winding Road Staff

January 23, 2019

The SCCA will be running a 3 day race weekend at Circuit of The Americas, February 8-10, 2019. Winding Road Racing has put together a special value package to allow drivers interested in the Spec MX-5 Challenge Series to race one of the cars at one of the great tracks in America. If you decide to join the series, this will be good practice since the Spec MX-5 Challenge West Series will be racing at COTA in May as part of qualifying for its $100k+ national championship. 

Save Over $6000

The full cost for a Spec MX-5 Challenge weekend is normally $9000, but thanks to support from Yokohama, Pagid Racing and the SCCA, WRR is offering this race weekend test for $1900 per driver, plus the cost of entry. The $1900 fee covers car rental, mechanical wear and tear, transport, tires, fuel, pads, fluids, nitrogen, mechanics, prep and setup. This is a standard SCCA SuperTour three-day race weekend with practice session, two qualifiers and two races (one 25 minute and one 35 minute). Total run time is scheduled for 2 hours (SCCA Supps with latest schedule for Group 1 EP are downloadable here). WRR will have 2018 Spec MX-5 Challenge Central Series champion Tom Martin III on hand for data analysis and coaching advice. Drivers are responsible for their personal transportation, lodging, and meals, entry fees, plus damage due to crashes, contact, off-track excursions and abuse. Drivers must be SCCA full competition licensed.

In summary, you get to race a Spec MX-5 car to see if you'd like to join the 2019 Spec MX-5 Challenge and run for $100k+ in prizes. Your price is about the cost of tires and fluids.
