More than 50 deposits for the $53,000 ready-to-race car received within the first four days; order now if you want to be racing early in 2016.
Within hours of the Oct. 1 price announcement, racers were in line, online, and placing $10,000 deposits, to be among the first to receive the all-new Mazda MX-5 Cup race car later this year or early in 2016.
“All summer long we sensed this would be a hit,” said John Doonan, director of motorsports, Mazda North American Operations (MNAO). “We tested in front of our current Idemitsu MX-5 Cup racers, our club racers, and visited a few of motorsports country clubs; having 50 deposits this quickly, however, is amazing. We are poised to set new records for field sizes in 2016. Luckily our season will not be starting until the end of April, so there is still time for others to place an order and receive their race car before the season begins.”
Priority to purchase the new race car is being given to current competitors in the Idemitsu Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich® Tires, and others who intend to compete in the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Cup. MX-5 Cup cars built by Long Road Racing will be eligible to compete in club racing with the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) and National Auto Sport Association (NASA) as well as many track-day clubs.
