Irvine, CA – Mazda Motorsports introduced the MX-5 Global Cup race car in 2014 as nature intended: as an open-top roadster. Now, those who compete in series that require a hardtop have a factory-approved option, Mazda Motorsports has confirmed pricing and availability for the track-only, removable MX-5 Cup hardtop.
The hardtop priced at $4420.00, with orders being accepted exclusively through Mazda Motorsports from owners and those who have committed to purchasing an MX-5 Global Cup race car. Deliveries will begin in April.
“While our first year was spent concentrating on the successful launch of the MX-5 Cup car in our Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires, we knew that was just one arena for customers. Now with an available hardtop, Mazda racers can compete in SCCA and NASA Club Racing and in the Pirelli World Challenge TCA class,” said David Cook, business development manager, Mazda Motorsports.
