SVRA: Heritage Cup in 2022
Posted 01-03-2022 12:17 PM
I click the "Printable Entry Form" on each event's page on the SVRA site. If there is a Miata Heritage Group it appears on the pdf. Auto Club (Fontana), Road Atlanta, NOLA, Road America, Lime Rock, Mid Ohio, Portland, New Jersey, Willow Springs, Utah, and COTA list a Miata group. Sebring, Charlotte, Laguna Seca, Sonoma, Ridge (WA), Indy, Watkins Glen, and VIR (this sucks) do not.
For events that do show a Miata group the entry fee is $375, which seems pretty reasonable to me. I was told by SVRA staff that a Miata can enter any event however sprint race entry fees are $745+ (non-member, some venues are higher) No thank you.
Take all this at face value as I do not represent the SVRA.

I signed up for 2 races anyway at the "full rate" knowing they would put me in Group 3 on their Black Friday special. Now I get will get a credit and sign up for another race perhaps. As I spoke to them yesterday morning, wait until next week and they should have it fully published/announced.

“There are two classes for Miatas - 1990-1997, NA Miatas and the 1999-2005, NB Miatas. Mazda Motorsports is offering every Miata Heritage Cup entry a $100 contingency bonus regardless of finishing position and number of class starters. Sign up for one race or the whole series, entry is open for all events!“

maybe we want to change the name of the thread. a casual viewer/reader might take it face value.
I enjoyed the SVRA races we had local. i might make it out to Road America this year. sadly no BIR races this year. last year we ran in a mixed group and me showing up in the mirrors of the muscle cars sure was a bit of shock for some of the drivers

I don't know for sure, but it appears the Miata Heritage Series is toast. An individual, separate race group no longer appears on any event entry forms and in recent events Miatas have been grouped with small-bore sportscars. SVRA took a great idea and FUBAR'd it in short order. C'est la vie.

On the SVRA event page none of the remaining 2023 events indicate that there is a Miata only group (Miata Heritage Group). Miatas get mixed in with other small bore makes (Groups 1, 3, 4 and 5b). At VIR, for instance, the non-member entry fee is $895. Even with a $100 rebate that is too rich for me for two twenty minute races in a non-Miata-specific group.
I've emailed Kathy, SVRA registrar, to confirm.
