Mazda MX-5 Cup Goes Global

Mazda MX-5 CupSince its recent unveiling, the most-asked question about the fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 has been “Where will it race?”

Mazda has just answered that question with the announcement that the Mazda MX-5 Cup would be going worldwide in 2016 as the MX-5 Global Cup, a new series that will take place in North America, Europe, and Asia.

The series will take place around the world with identically prepared cars and will culminate at the end of 2016 with a Global Shootout at the famous Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in California.

“It has long been our goal to see Mazda fans around the world competing in identical MX-5s, and the launch of the 2016 MX-5 Miata is the perfect time to make this goal a reality,” said Masahiro Moro, a Mazda executive.

Little has been revealed about the race-spec MX-5 so far, though we do know it uses a 2.0-liter Skyactiv four-cylinder engine. For all the details about the production version, however, visit Steet Ponte Mazda!
