Miata Trophy is here!

The UK’s all new-for-2023 Mazda MX-5 championship is the latest addition to MSV Trackdays’ impressive racing portfolio, which boasts the successful Trackday Trophy, Trackday Championship and EnduroKA series.

Anticipation is reaching fever pitch for two classes of Mazda MX-5 to form on a single grid, challenging for championship glory. The two classes in question are derived from chassis code: NA Class (for Mk1 chassis) and NC Class (for Mk3 and 3.5 chassis). A dynamic points structure has been designed to encourage close competition and allow the overall champion to come from either of the two classes, maximizing the importance of each and every point on offer during the season.

An exciting qualifying format, where the top-ten fastest qualifiers will take on ‘SuperPole’ – a winner-takes-all shootout for the front of the grid, is in place at each event to decide the starting grid for race one at each event. SuperPole is set to be a truly exhilarating experience for drivers and spectators alike. Competitors will then fight for victory across two sprint races, providing the perfect platform for plenty of thrilling on-track action. 

The inaugural season starts in stunning fashion, as Miata Trophy takes on one of the most prestigious circuit configurations in British motorsport – Brands Hatch Grand Prix. Ten races follow, across five of the UK’s finest circuits: Anglesey, Oulton Park, Donington Park, Snetterton and Brands Hatch (Indy). For a more in-depth look at the inaugural calendar read here.

There are a number of generous driver prizes on offer for winning competitors this year too, including a prize-drive at a pre-determined EnduroKA race in 2024 for class champions. The addition of these prizes will ignite strong competition and we expect a season of fantastically close racing, while maintaining the high driving standards and scrutineering associated with MSVTs existing racing portfolio.

The Miata Trophy website will be your go-to hub for everything this season, from race results and reports to regulations and those all-important championship standings.

Let’s do this!
