A new race series that puts the focus on driver ability that will be both fun and superb value. It is designed to put a grid of MX5s together to race at Kirkistown starting in the 2019 season. The vision is to start a competitive but well-mannered race series, in which all competitors will respect each other and each other’s machinery. This will not be a contact sport as contact=damage=repairs=money. Opinion is that the MX5 is one of the best sports cars ever made, inexpensive, well designed and well engineered. As well as for serious enthusiasts, this series will also appeal to novices looking for excitement and fun. Competitors can participate in the following MX5 cars - Eunos/Miata/MX5 origin 1989 – 2005.
