The best way to determine if a race car is the right fit for the driver is for the driver to test drive it. It's not the simple, but it's close. Teams in the Battery Tender MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires have test day options available. In addition, Mazda and Long Road Racing are offering test day opportunities at Barber Motorsports Park, March 4-5.



(MX-5 Cup cars are eligible to run in Battery Tender MX-5 Cup; Pirelli World Challenge TCA; SCCA T3; NASA PTC and more.)


Barber Motorsports Park Opportunity: The Battery Tender Global MX-5 Cup kicks-off the season at Barber Motorsports Park during the IndyCar race weekend, April 21-23. MX-5 Cup Spring Training will be held at Barber Motorsports Park March 4-5 (load-in on the 3rd). Mazda and LRR plan have two MX-5 Cup cars available for testing either test day for those interested in joining the series.


For details, contact Long Road Racing at (980)223-8547.
