Deadlines Near: Spec MX-5 Challenge Series

Features, Racing I By Luciana D'Andretta I March 06, 2019

The start of the Spec MX-5 Challenge Series is only a month away (the East Series opens at Summit Point on April 5-7; the West Series at CoTA on May 4-5). Transporters are being detailed, cars are being prepped, tires are on order and trophies are being built. With $150,000 on the line at the national championship, the excitement is building. $80k will be awarded to the championship winner at Road Atlanta, with $40k going to P2 and $20k to P3.

The Series will run major tracks during 2019 including Road America, Watkins Glen, Sonoma Raceway, Mid-Ohio, Circuit of The Americas, Sebring, and Laguna Seca. The Series offers full arrive & drive services, including race car rental, but also allows independent drivers to service and run their cars. A detailed breakdown of entry options is available on the Series website.

Only Two Seats Left

Each of the East Series and the West Series has two seats available in series-owned cars. In 2019, drivers who own SCCA T4 cars can also run them for the full season, so there is additional room beyond what was offered in 2018. Either way, the application deadline for the regular season is March 22. The application is available by clicking here.

Single Event Entries Welcome

Drivers who own T4 cars are also welcome to run individual two-race events, but they will not be championship eligible. Drivers must run the full regular season in order to qualify for the championship. See the full FAQ page for the series here.

To enter an individual event, contact [email protected] for West Series events or specmx5@atlspeedwerks for East Series events.

National recognition, significant prizes, and exciting competition are coming.
