  1. Endurance racing and the NC (third gen) Miata highlight the contingency awards enhancements. More will be announced later next week with more details about the ChampCar Endurance Series and the Mazda contingency awards program. In club racing and autocross, many auto manufacturers pay contingency awards, though not all. Of those who do, the philosophy has largely been to pay just the winner or, perhaps, the podium. Manufacturers want wins and podiums to be able to showcase. Mazda is different. It wants to showcase the talented Mazda racers, but it also rewards many racers who finish deeper in the fields. “At Mazda, we don’t do things just because they’ve always been done that way,” commented David Cook, Mazda Motorsports’ business development manager. “A core value of ours has been continuous kaizen (continuous improvement). In 2017, we began paying deeper in the fields – often the top five finishing positions. In 2018, we paid a little deeper overall. And starting in 2019, as we refocus our efforts in road racing and autocross, we will offer contingency awards to Mazda racers in three sanctioning bodies for the first time – all endurance racing focused.” Mazda racers competing in American Endurance Racing (AER), ChampCar, and World Racing League (WRL) are now eligible for contingency awards. For those choosing an MX-5 Miata, Mazda Motorsports has secured a parts rewards program as the primary compensation for these racers. These “parts rewards points” can be used to acquire many Miata racing competition parts from Mazda Motorsports. While points cannot be combined with cash to purchase a given part, the points value range in the hundreds to thousands of dollars in value. The list of Miata competition parts and associated point value will be released later this month. Due to fewer competition parts choices for those Mazda racers who do not compete in a Miata, they will be eligible for the standard “cash” rewards (applied through a rewards card). “We have been following ChampCar, AER, and WRL for multiple years, and have become very impressed with the level of professionalism and focus on the customer experience each sanctioning body provides,” said Cook. “As Mazda racers are choosing to compete in endurance racing, we will continue to find additional ways to support them.” While Mazda Motorsports is getting behind select endurance racing sanctioning bodies, the GT3 class, it is also turning its support focus to the NC MX-5 Miata (2006 – 2015; third generation Miata). “The NC Miata is primed to take off in the club racing market,” commented Cook. “And we are going to give it a big boost.” As the price of the NC Miata road car has come down over the years and the NC Miata race car have made their way from pro racing into the club racing market, the opportunity to acquire an NC Miata for club racing competition has never been more affordable. Tether this with the ongoing support of the Mazda Motorsports Team Support Programand the emergence of the Spec MX-5 Challenge series, the owner’s value proposition is remarkable. But Mazda Motorsports is not resting there. After the great success of Spec Miata (the series for the first two generation Miatas), Mazda Motorsports is taking those learnings and greatly enhancing its support of the NC Miata to drive it to become a spec national class in NASA and SCCA competition in the coming years. “We have been above 50% market share, based on participation, in SCCA club racing for many consecutive years,” added Cook. That allows us competitive advantages in the market place to continue offering a Team Support Program bar none. Our goal is to get to 60%, which would allow us even greater means to support club racers. To do this, we need Spec Miata to continue to flourish, while also gaining new customers in other areas. The NC platform, being a quick, reliable, affordable and fun car that comes with all the support we are known to offer and more, entices other car owners. Our support of Spec Miata and other classes such as GT3 will continue to grow, as evident with our investment and partnership with Penske Racing Shocks and the GT3 Challenge presented by MPI, while we will bolster the support of the NC, in particular.” While Mazda Motorsports is planning to share more on the NC Miata strategy later this month, part of its strategy can be viewed through its contingency support program. The new parts rewards bonus in endurance racing is just one new offering. NC owners will receive increased contingency awards, including the parts rewards bonus by accruing points in other series such as SCCA Touring 4, NASA ST5, and Spec MX-5 Challenge. These added contingency awards via the parts rewards bonus will help NC Miata and endurance racers continue to maintain top performing race cars by more easily acquiring competition parts from Mazda Motorsports. And according to Cook, contingency enhancements for the NC are going to exist beyond 2019. As Mazda has nearly doubled the number of Mazda racers who have earned contingency during these last two years, and it continues to invest in racers with older and newer generation cars, one thing should be clear to all in the club racing arena, this is a very good time to be a Mazda racer.

  2. Hello everyone, I have a total of 8 gen 2, RX-7's for sale. Most will be considered parts cars, one was a competitive ITS racecar but has fallen into disrepair. If you have interest or know someone that might have interest in 1 or all of the cars please let me know. I know Rx7 parts are getting hard to find. please email me and i'm happy to call back if you'd like more questions. Thanks all
  3. Cleaning the basement and had this as a spare from the first SM race car. It's the MazdaSpeed Spec Miata exhaust for the NA generation ('90-'97) 0000-06-5425. I believe these are no longer available. It is stainless steel (Bosal branded muffler) and overall in good shape. It does not have a flange, so it will need to be welded in or have a flange fabbed to it. Perfect for a ChampCar / LeMons build or AutoX/Solo if not for an SM. $75 cash In Ann Arbor, MI but I can bring this to VIR 24 next week.
  4. SOLD. I have a set of Spec Miata Bilstein shocks with genuine Fat Cat bump stops. This set of shocks came off a high-end SM build and they were shock dyno’d from a large group of shocks to be a matched set. They have very little track time on them, totaling just five SCCA race weekends. Yes, there are some slightly cheaper sets available, but they likely have a lot more track time on them and are not a matched set. Couple of small scratches from removal, but otherwise in great shape. Comes with genuine Fat Cat bump stops (not the knock offs that one shop was selling) Can send additional images. Front part number: 24-014885 Rear part number: 24-014892 Thanks.

  10. Up for sale is a fully prepped race car, a 1996 Mazda 626. It ran in several Chump Car races as well as 24 Hours of Lemons. The Car was even featured on Car&Drivers blog. Many replacement parts have been added several of which are upgrades from original equipment, including new springs, ignition wires, new Tokico shocks, new race tires (BF Goodrich Rivals), safety harness, and CarboTech Racing Brake pads. The original engine blew and has been replaced. The engine is in the car but needs to have wiring and hoses attached.

Has full fire suppression system, and roll cage. We have been slowly working on the car and finally have it to a point where it is competitive; but the team has disbanded because of job transfers, moves, and job requirements...etc. We are asking $750, even though we invested lot more money in the car.

  11. Got around $2500 in it and would like to break even but... I bought this a couple years ago with the intention of racing in the ChumpCar series but ran out of time to work on it having young children. I did all the work you see below and took it to one track day up in Michigan at the Gingerman road course. I drove it 3 hours up there and ran it all day with no problems and then drove it all the way home. It was great in the corners and the brakes worked awesome. It's pretty quick and there's a lot you can do to make the 13b motor even more powerful. Smooth all the way up to 7,000 RPM!Nitto NT05 tires with only one track day on themNo interior except for driver/passenger seat and gauge cluster No door glassBrand new coilovers and camber plate Adjustable camber rod in rear Comes with full cage legal for 24hrs of Lemons or Chump Comes with a brand new never installed racing seat Has the stock big brake set up Hawk Blue blue pads with only one track day on themTransmission shifts great and has all gears Motor runs great Clutch grabs great Exhaust is straight pipe so it's a bit loud (nice rappy sound)New racing steering wheel installed New brake lines, master cyl, slave cyl, clutch masterNew fuel lines New racing fluids all around, engine oil, transmission, rear gear and brakesStock limited slip differentialK&N filter in stock cold air system.

  14. Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/speedwaycreations Car Owner: Justin DeVane Background: I raced dirt oval karts since 1996 with my dad. In 2012 we began building our Mazda RX7 ChumpCar and entered our first race at Road Atlanta in 2013. I have participated in the 24 hours of VIR (The Classic) since 2012 with our sister team, the Rotary Rotards and also recently completed the 14 Hours of Road Atlanta in 2015 which resulted in a win in the newly formed Class "B". I have entered and race a total of 12 ChumpCar events since August 2012 and also volunteered at multiple events. Our car was build so that my dad and I could share the enjoyment of our favorite hobby, without the expense and hassle of maintaining multiple cars. Speedway Creations Racing entered and completed its first race in February 2013 at Road Atlanta. Since that first race, the father and son team have fielded the #84 Mazda Rx7 at other circuits such as Daytona, Sebring and Atlanta Motorsports Park. The car has logged now over 6,000 race miles and was built to survive the punishment of endurance racing. Planned 2015 ChumpCar Schedule May - Daytona August - Barber Motorsports Park September - Sebring October - Atlanta Motorsports Park (AMP)
