Mazda offers a hardtop option for MX-5 race cars

Mazda now offers a hardtop version of the MX-5 for those who compete in a series with MX-5 Cup cars.

Since 2014, Mazda Motorspors’ MX-5 Global Cup race car has been known as an open-top roadster. Now, the current generation of MX-5 offers a factory-approved hardtop option, but it will be available to the latest Spec Miata race series.

The hardtop, priced at $4,420, will be exclusively available to Mazda Motorsports owners and to those who committed to purchase and MX-5 Global Cup race car.

“While our first year was spent concentrating on the successful launch of the MX-5 Cup car in our Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires, we knew that was just one arena for customers. Now with an available hardtop, Mazda racers can compete in SCCA and NASA Club Racing and in the Pirelli World Challenge TCA class,” said David Cook, business development manager, Mazda Motorsports.
