Battery Tender Global mx5 Cup



Battery Tender Global mx5 Cup cup

The MX-5 Cup race cars start as complete MX-5 road cars from the Mazda Hiroshima, Japan factory before being transported to engineering development partner Long Road Racing in Statesville, North Carolina where they are produced into a race car. The process includes disassembly of the production car, welding and paint of a full roll cage and interior, and assembly of the race car, adding more than 250 motorsports-specific parts. Other components of the car, including the Mazda SKYACTIV 2.0 liter engine are sealed to ensure even competition and a cost-effective platform.

Important information:

Flags must be adhered to, if you are being lapped even without a visible notification, then move over. Do not block the race leaders from coming through.

When qualifying if you are not on a hot lap then again please move out of the way of drivers who are, basic common sense. Remember there is 15 minutes of qualifying

No rage quitting, if you have to stop the race then pull over and apply the handbrake until race has finished, drivers who continuously quit because of a spin out or out of frustration will be replaced with someone who does wish to race. If you have to leave then do so and just let us know later on. Anyone who does have to leave or doesn’t participate to the end will be classed as DNF, therefor no points can be awarded.

When leaving the pit lane please remain in the lane on the exit until the solid white line finishes, and check your mirrors before pulling out.

Trading paint will happen but crashing will not be tolerated, if you feel you have been shoved off the track, or lost time due to poor driving of a competitor please log the lap time, the lap in question and the driver that was involved. Contact Sammo85 via discord GT SPORT channel and he will decide on who is to blame, and what if any action is required.

1 Mandatory pitstop is required each race.

When all the vehicles are bunched up, especially into the first bend, every driver will need to be respectful, if you have to swerve to avoid a collision and leave the track yourself then so be it. No brake testing / no swerve blocking / no shunting. You are entitled to defend your space and racing line within reason.

If you cause a collision which allows you to gain a place, then give the position back, if you do so no further action will be taken.

No driving around the track the wrong way.

Punishment for what we deem as exceptionally poor driving i.e avoidable collisions etc, will be dealt with in the way of point penalties. Continual trouble makers will be removed from the series altogether.

No bad mouthing or slagging off other drivers in the chat, if you have an issue then PM COXBOX / BOPPA / SAMMO85.

If you for any reason cannot make a race then not a problem, just let us know as we have people on a waiting list who can participate until you return. The first 16 places are taken, however the line up will change from time to time if you have other commitments.

We welcome you to the series and hope you enjoy the racing. The racing calendar will be up shortly once we have set all the dates, however we will be running lots of practice sessions in the meantime, please monitor Discord GT Sport channel for details.

Series owner: Coxbox / Online host and coordinator: Boppa_ / Race steward: Sammo85.
