The MX-5 SuperCup deservedly is one of the supporting championships of the new TCR UK Championship for 2018.
This popular, fast and reliable sports car, with sensible performance modifications, creates a superb platform for competitive racing. These Mazda MX-5 Mk3 cars, although modern, are not complicated and can be run from home (as many of our drivers do), or there are several specialist race preparers who offer race support as well as ‘arrive and drive’ packages.
The MX-5 SuperCup season is contested over 8 different meetings at the UK’s top circuits, including world famous venues such as Silverstone, Brands Hatch and Donington Park. Race weekends are all triple header meetings, with a 20 minute qualifying session and three 20 minute races at all events, giving drivers plenty of competitive track time. There are always battles throughout the field meaning that the winner is rarely decided before the final lap and the winning margin is often only tenths of a second! Multiple race winners throughout the season is the norm and in the last 5 seasons, the championship has remained undecided until the final race meeting, two of which went down to the final race of the season! While certainly competitive on track, the SuperCup prides itself on having drivers and teams who are always willing to lend a helping hand to their fellow competitors and who enjoy the atmosphere back in the paddock as much as the action on track.
