A new generation of Mazda MX-5 will join the BRSCC ranks in 2020 as the Mk4 Trophy makes its debut on Uk race tracks alongside the existing MX-5 Championship and SuperCup this season.
The Trophy is designed to be a stepping stone from the MX-5 SuperCup for drivers looking for a new challenge, or for those who are searching for the next level in their racing career with a superb race-ready car to match.
The current generation ND (Mk4) Mazda MX-5 model will be used as the base car, with several engine modifications, a sequential gearbox, uprated suspension and tyres to create an excellent all-round package for drivers to enjoy.
The concept behind the new car is to create a bridge to higher levels of national motorsport such as GT and sportscar racing and to add another level of competition within the BRSCC Mazda paddock.
The cars will be seen competing throughout the season initially in the BRSCC Clubsport Trophy in 2020, with this season mainly being used as a development year for new cars and drivers. A pair of dedicated test days will be taking place at Donington Park on February 8th and Silverstone on February 16th for any drivers wishing to try their hand with a view to competing in a car for this season.

Engine: 2.0 litre SkyActiv-G with aftermarket ECU, race cams, uprated valve springs, race air filter, tubular exhaust manifold, stainless steel exhaust system and uprated engine mounts.
