This event is round 6 of the MX-5 Cup and it is also the 2021 MX-5 Nationals.


The MX-5 Cup is a race series open to all MX-5 Club members, and is intended as a safe and fun competition, particularly suitable as the first racing experience for drivers coming from track days or supersprints.

The MX-5 Cup is run under a strict code of conduct that lays down driving standards that we expect from competitors, which makes it suitable for drivers moving up from Supersprints.

The MX-5 Cup is organised into time categories, which means that you can win the championship without having the fastest car. This engenders good competition all the way down the grid and makes the MX-5 Cup such great fun for everyone.

MX-5 Cup races are held at events organised by Motor Racing Australia (MRA):

MRA race meetings are held under AASA permits, so drivers must hold AASA race licences, and their cars must comply with AASA safety standards for race events.

An important distinction to bear in mind is that the MX-5 Club of NSW organises the category (the MX-5 Cup), but we do not run the events – MRA do. To enter the MX-5 Cup, you need to enter that category on the MRA website and pay the entry fee to MRA. Registering for the MX-5 Cup series, is not entering the event!

To run in the MX-5 Cup series or to do more than one event, you need to be a financial member of the MX-5 Club of NSW. Non-members can compete in one MX-5 Cup round ($20 payable to the MX-5 Club) but must join the Club if intending to do more than one round.

Registration for the series ($60 payable to the MX-5 Club of NSW), entitles you to compete for trophies in the MX-5 Cup championship which is normally conducted over 6 rounds.

The 2021 season will be held over six rounds at three different circuits. Two of the 2020 rounds will be held at the Sydney Motorsport Park GP circuit, and one at the Brabham Circuit. The remaining three rounds will be held at Wakefield Park.
