Awesome stuff!!

 

For those of you who have dabbled into the PWC, mx5-cup, how does the racing compare to SM? Do budgets get out of control quickly? Is it worth trying?

As well....The winner of both races(though he was dqed in the first for excessive camber?)was Spec Miata driver Will Rogers...who finished P2 in the West Teen challenge last season and competed at the shoot out on an invitation.

Another former young SM driver who is making a name is Kyle Kaiser. He finished 4th at the 2014 Runoffs(before being dq'ed). He just won the Indy Lights race at Pheonix and took the overall points lead in the series. Granted, he came to SM for a short period after/during his other series.

We ran a B-spec car in the last 2 weekends of the year last year.  The biggest costs are the initial costs and things like entry fee, race keeper, yellow light system and licenses can eat up the budget quick,  The prize money is much better though.

 

In regards to the racing it doesn't have the depth as a strong spec miata field, but their are some good drivers and cars,  the television package makes it something you can sell to a sponsor.  

 

Hope that helps.
