Courtesy of Winding Road: Six of the first 10 drivers have been selected for the inaugural season of the Spec MX-5 Challenge Central Series. Each of these drivers is aiming for the regional championship and a shot at the season-ending grand prize of $100,000 supported by Mazda Motorsports, Yokohama Tire, Winding Road Racing and Atlanta Speedwerks. These drivers hope to join qualifying participants in the East Series for the 2018 Spec MX-5 Challenge Championships at Road Atlanta in November.
“We are very pleased with the experience level of the drivers who have been selected for the first Spec MX-5 Challenge,” said Tom Martin, Series Director. “We have positioned the Challenge as a driver development series, and the drivers we have picked have shown a dedication to developing their skills and advancing their careers.”
