Long Road Racing has been winning since 2001. Winning takes more than just a great driver:
it’s about having a properly setup vehicle; it’s about preparation for the worst and the expectation for the best; it’s about teamwork with a common goal and plan of action. The combination of these facets along with a little luck creates the opportunity to win. Here’s the story about Long Road Racing.
Long Road Racing started in 2001 with racing preparation and support services; both at the amateur and pro levels, and custom street tuning for enthusiasts. After a superb run in Spec Miata with multiple Club Racing victories, Long Road Racing advanced to professional racing. And in 2005, we won the Pro Spec Miata championship!
Following the success with Freedom Autosport, Long Road Racing embarked on a new project with Mazda Motorsports: to become the exclusive builder of the Global MX-5 Cup race cars from the 4th generation (ND) Mazda MX-5. This spec-series based on the homologated race car would be the platform for the development of professional road racing drivers in America, Asia and Europe. The highlight of the series is a $200,000 scholarship from Mazda to advance up the ladder of professional racing.
With an initial estimate of building 40 Global MX-5 Cup cars, the interest in the series and in the best value in motorsports in the race car has propelled sales to over 180 cars. Long Road Racing continues to work with Mazda Motorsports on this project as well as to provide trackside support for teams and drivers at each of the Battery Tender Global MX-5 Cup Series events presented by BF Goodrich Tires.
Along with our racing pedigree and knowledge of the Mazda MX-5, Long Road Racing has developed and marketed the Ultimate MX-5 street car for the car enthusiasts. Apply the proper tuning to an already great roadster or RF and you get the feeling of being one with your vehicle. Add a supercharger to that package and you get the boost in acceleration that everyone craves.
History will continue as will the opportunity with Long Road Racing. Winning with Personal Service focuses on our customers and in our dedication to build what people want. Whether it is a Global MX-5 Cup car, an Ultimate MX-5 or a custom-fabricated roll cage; you can trust that Long Road Racing will stand behind you and our work.
