BFGoodrich Tires, official partner of the Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup (presented by BFGoodrich Tires), has provided the slick and wet tires for the professional series. Due to the interest the Global MX-5 Cup car has received by club racers and track day members, BFG, in cooperation with Mazda Motorsports and Long Road Racing, designed and developed the BFGoodrich g-Force R1-S - a DOT compliant competition race tire suitable for SCCA T3 / STL, NASA PTC, and country club or track day enthusiasts.
As with the pro series’ g-Force slick, the DOT tire is proportionally sized to fit the tight confines of the ND-chassis on the spec Rays 17×7.5 wheel and maintain the constructor engineered ride height. The g-Force R1-S uses track proven BFG performance from experience gained in the Battery Tender Mazda Mx-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires series since 2009, as well as SCCA Majors competition including three SCCA Runoffs National Championships in 2016 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
