TOPEKA, Kan. (April. 1, 2015) – Sports Car Club of America has announced that Maxxis Tire will become the exclusive tire supplier for the SCCA Club Racing Spec Miata class for National competition beginning in 2016.

Beginning January 1, 2016, all cars in the class will run exclusively on the Victra RC-1 tire in the P205/50ZR15 size, with no current designated tire for wet conditions.

“We conducted a survey of licensed Spec Miata competitors this past winter, and we believe that the move from the Hoosier products best addresses the feedback we received, within the parameters of our selection process,” SCCA President and CEO said. We shared the survey results with the Club Racing Board who, in turn, consulted with the Spec Miata Advisory Committee. All of these sources helped us to shape our decision. Additionally, we have received considerable feedback requesting universal support at National race events across the country from the tire provider.”

SCCA set forth a process to select the next tire in 2014. After evaluating the survey information, input from the CRB and data from the most recent tire test conducted, the Maxxis Victra tire was selected.

“We are extremely pleased and excited about this great opportunity,” said Sr. Product Manager, Maxxis Tire.

Established in 2006 as a National-level class, but existing for several years before that in Regional competition, Spec Miata exclusively utilizes the 1990-2005 Mazda Miata with safety modifications and an approved suspension kit available through MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development. Since its inclusion into the SCCA Club Racing National program, Spec Miata has finished first or second in annual class participation, making it an extremely popular program within SCCA. Spec Miata utilized the Toyo Tires Proxes RA1 tire from 2006-2008 and 2010-2011 and the Toyo Tires Proxes R888 tire in 2009. 2012-2015 utilized the Hoosier race tire.
