Global MX-5 Cup Race Car - Technical Specifications

(for pictures see our "Picture Album" tab)


The Mazda Global MX-5 Cup car is a purpose-built race car from 2016 / 2017 Mazda MX-5 known as the “ND” or fourth generation Miata.  All cars are built from white, Club trim level new cars exclusively by Long Road Racing in Statesville, NC, just north of Charlotte.  (www.LongRoadRacing.com


The car is completely disassembled, tub is cleaned of seam sealer and sound deadening material, and an FIA, SCCA and NASA approved roll cage is TIG welded into the car.  The cage contains complete NASCAR-style door bars on both sides of the car (making it the ultimate HPDE driver / instructor car) and is tied together across the firewall through the interior of the dash leaving a neat appearing and fully functional dash.  After roll cage completion, the cage and tub of the car are painted with automotive single stage grey paint and baked to a hard finish in an auto paint booth.  Custom colors are available at an additional cost. 

 

After cage installation and paint, the car is assembled with over 250 race car-specific parts.  The parts added to the car provide handling, endurance, safety and power enhancement specifically designed for the car after hundreds of hours and thousands of miles of both on-track and lab testing by automotive mechanical engineers and professional race car drivers.  Component sealing and authentication tracking is done for parity in the various racing series in which the car competes and includes the Global MX-5 Cup series, Pirelli World Challenge TCA, SCCA and NASA.

 

The complete list of parts added to the race car can be found in the Global MX-5 Cup car Homologation Document (included on a USB stick with the car along with several other documents including the User's Guide) - the highlights are listed below.
