One of the best-supported single-make championships in UK club motorsport, the Mazda MX-5 Championship provides intense, door-to-door single-make sports car racing.
The series makes use of the Mk1 Mazda MX-5, one of the best small sports cars of all time, and which provides a true challenge to master for drivers of all experience levels, backgrounds and ages. The relative simplicity of the cars mean they can be prepared from home or maintained by one of several race teams, and they provide a cost-effective way for anyone to compete in a contemporary small open-topped sports car.
The MX-5 Championship features an action-packed race weekend featuring a 20-minute qualifying session, followed by 3 x 20-minute races. In addition to the main overall championship honours, a Masters contest is also featured within the series to allow drivers aged 45 and over to fight for their own victories and titles.
As has been the case for numerous seasons, due to the high level of competition delivered by the series, the MX-5 Championship isn’t usually settled until the final weekend of competition, and usually with multiple drivers in contention right down to the final race!
Brilliant camaraderie and welcoming paddock allow any driver to feel welcome and make friends straight away, with regular social gatherings at race weekends, plus a dedicated Awards Dinner at the end of the season.
