Courtesy of Turnology: Yokohama is proud to announce its affiliation with Spec MX-5 Challenge, a new category which spans the bridge between club Spec Miata and professional series like the Battery Tender MX-5 Cup. These sorts of series help make the world of professional motorsport slightly more egalitarian, and in these days of extremely high barriers to entry, they’re a breath of fresh air.
It’s a new rung on a ladder helping young talent make their mark on the world of professional motorsport. Set firmly between Spec Miata and Global MX-5 Cup, this affordable series offers the series champion with $100,000 to further their career. This new category tries to both provide an affordable racing experience while supplying the winner with an encouraging, door-opening quantity of money to help put their name in lights.
