Based on your driving skills the best car will be the one you are driving. Seriously, IMO it's too early to pick any of the cars as having an advantage over the other. It's hard to beat the support from Mazdaspeed Motorsports, so if I were to get into B-spec it would have to be a Mazda2

Someone else's as a rental. Why spend 30K on a crap box car for a series that may only last one year????

Ernie,

Don't let the man drama get you down. These cars are great to drive on a race track. Ask anyone who has driven one, I do believe it will be cars for the courses. Fast courses one car will have an advantage, Slow technical courses another car will have an advantage. etc. The biggest thing is get our and drive. Spec Miata is a great way to go, but B-spec will have it's advantages.

I think the best way to go is with whatever company throws down contingency money towards the effort.If the OEM's decide they want a B spec war you might see some payouts for win's instead of just tire bucks. Besides if there is a clear "car to have" they wiill add weights and plates as needed to balance things out.

I drove a B spec mazda 2 at NJMP. Sure it was way underpowered but still alot of fun to drive. I passed a couple spec miata's, ITB, ITC cars with it. GIven a large enough field I think it would be just as much fun as any other low power class.

We actually got a Mazda 2 last week and tested it stock. I got it to within 3 seconds of my SM fastlap on 3 WHEELS!! We are caging it this week and getting it prepped for the Homestead grand-am race.
