The Mazda MX-5 SuperCup is a highly competitive one-make championship for the Mk3 Mazda MX-5, which regularly attracts some of the fastest and skilled drivers from across UK club motorsport.
The MX-5 SuperCup will feature an amended four-race meeting calendar due to the delayed start to the UK motorsport season. The championship is usually settled on the final weekend of competition and has been for the last six seasons, with multiple drivers in contention right down to the final race!
Cars can be both prepared from home or maintained by one of several race teams and outfits, providing a cost-effective way for anyone to compete and succeed in a contemporary small sports car and succeed, no matter what their budget.
The championship features a Masters contest within the main series to allow all drivers aged 45 and over to fight and achieve their own victories and titles.
The brilliant camaraderie and welcoming paddock allow any driver to feel welcome and make friends straight away, with regular social gatherings at every race weekend, plus a dedicated Awards Dinner at the end of the season.
The MX-5 SuperCup is seen by many as the next step up from its Mk1 counterpart, as drivers pedal the 2.0-litre Mk3 MX-5 in competition against one another. For 2020, the SuperCup will merge with the MX-5 Super Series and will incorporate a new class structure, with a “Pro” class for drivers looking for a high level of competition, and a “Club” class for drivers wishing to race without the pressure of the Pro Class, but still enjoy the racing environment.
