Two Mazda MX-5 Cup Cars Remain; $8,000 In Rewards Await The Buyers

Don’t let its looks fool you. While the Mazda MX-5 Cup car is pushed by the Miata’s original 155-horsepower from the Skyactiv 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, these cars have had over 250 additions to them. Long Road Racing has transformed them into what we now know as the Global MX-5 Cup car. The cars feature a roll cage, upgraded suspension, brake rotors, radiator, and other components made specifically for the stress of road racing.

Coming in at just under 60 grand, the cars make for a decently priced introduction into a racing series. John Doonan, Mazda of North America’s Director of Motorsports Operations explains, “The car costs $58,000 to buy, so if someone buys a car outright the running costs decrease a bit compared to leasing, but then in other areas, they go up. Owning a car means you must own a truck to transport it, a pit space, tools, hire a guy or a crew to help you, etc.”

Whether its special pricing or other rewards programs for racers, Mazda has always found a way to put enthusiasts first. This time offering a bonus package for MX-5 Cup car buyers. The promotion started last month, when six of the Cup cars were offered – now, there are only two left available to North American buyers – but the deal still stands.

Not only would the buyer be receiving a ready-to-go race car that can compete in club and pro racing, but will also get a plethora (which is about $8,000 worth) of stock and competition racing parts, including but not limited to:

  • A Battery Tender “PowerTender Plus” battery charger: $99.95
  • A set of BFGoodrich Tires, with a choice between either an extra set of the ones purchased thrown in for free or a set of BFG g-Force slicks: $1,060
  • A custom roll cage and interior paint color of the buyers choice from Long Road Racing: $500
  • A full maintenance brake pad kit from PAGID Racing: $991.78
  • Waived entry fees to the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup event, either in the Championship or Challenger class: $1,200
  • And 50% off the following two hefty packages from Mazda’s Competition Parts Department: the Spares Pack (now $2,555.09) and the Crash Pack (now $2,282.98)
