MX-5 Cup

The Mazda MX-5 Club of NSW is excited to announce the launch of a series of MX-5 only races for 2014.

This series is called the MX-5 CUP, and consists of five races to be held at Wakefield Park Raceway over the year.

The MX-5 CUP has been created to provide an annual competition featuring low-cost, competitive, good spirited MX-5 racing. It is intended to foster the development of MX-5 racing and encourage new entrants to the sport. Newcomers will be provided support and assistance, and competitors will be expected to adopt a gentlemanly approach to them under race conditions. 

There will be 5 different classes in the competition. Points will be awarded at each round for placegetters from each class. The overall winner for the season will be the competitor who amasses the most points, hence he or she could come from any class. CUP entrants will compete for class places at each round, and for the title of overall 2014 CUP Champion.

Note that the entrance fee for the MX-5 CUP will be separate from the event entry fee payable to the raceway or event promoter.

Eligibility

The MX-5 CUP is open to Mazda MX-5s (and imported Miatas and Roasters). The competition is open to all MX-5s that comply with CUP requirements.

Code Of Conduct

All competitors will be required to commit to a MX-5 CUP Code of Conduct. The intention is to provide for competitive but sporting racing, with special consideration for new entrants to the sport.

Non-MX-5 CUP Entrants

Non-championship entrants are welcome in MX-5 CUP races. They will not be eligible to participate in the CUP points tally or receive any other benefits for CUP entrants. They are also required to agree in writing to the MX-5 CUP Sporting Code of Conduct before being allowed to form on the dummy grid.

First Time Racers

If you are getting into racing for the first time you need to obtain a licence, and prepare your car. Information for those new to racing can be found on the club website HERE.

We encourage all budding MX-5 racers to come and join us. Reasonable track experience and car control is required. We recommend that prior to racing you gain experience at MX-5 Club of NSW Track Days and CAMS NSW Supersprint events.

The upper class threshold of a 1min 16s lap at Wakefield Park is a guideline. If you are concerned you may not meet this, please contact us to discuss your eligibility. Provided you have obtained sufficient experience, we will provide the support to enable you to take the grid for the first time.

The best way to get quicker is to go racing!

First Time Racers Preparation

The MX-5 CUP is a development series for MX-5 racers. Before submitting an entry in the MX-5 CUP, competitors will need to obtain:

  • Race licence
  • Vehicle logbook

They will also need to prepare their car and equipment to comply with the competition rules and regulations of the licencing body and those of the event promoter and raceway.

First time racers should refer to information on the MX-5 Club of NSW’s website http://nsw.mx5.com.au/motorsport/other-motorsport/racing.

A committee member has been assigned to assist with any questions and concerns that first time racers may have.
