The Spec MX-5 Central season kicks off at NCM Motorsports Park in March. NCM Motorsports Park is a new (2014) track located in Bowling Green, Kentucky as part of the National Corvette Museum complex. Built at a cost of $20M, the layout is a collaboration of Steve Crawford with Pratt and Miller. Some outstanding features of the track:


   - The track has inch perfect replicas of corners from Le Mans (Mulsanne Corner, Porsche Curves, Playstation Chicane).
   - The track is very technical without being slow.
   - Patience is critical in getting the most out of a lap.
   - Substantial elevation change.
   - Demands 100% focus the whole time, even the straights aren't straight.



Spec MX-5 Challenge will run NCM Motorsports Park in NC generation Spec MX-5 race cars rather than the NB generation PTE cars used in this video, so Spec MX-5 pace should be a few seconds faster than this. Spec MX-5 gives 20 drivers the opportunity to win a $100,000 scholarship to Global MX-5 Cup and more, running tracks including Circuit of The Americas, NOLA, VIR and Road Atlanta.
