NEWS: The first ND Mazda MX-5 race car is here

Mazda MX5 ND race car 02

Mazda relentlessly brags about how it’s the most raced marque in America. Now it’s apparently gunning for the world. Today at SEMA, alongside the world’s first Miata race car — built from one of the Chicago Auto Show display models — Mazda revealed the first ND race car.

It’s all part of a greater plan to develop the Spec Miata racing series globally, To ensure every one is on a level playing field, one spec sheet and one builder will supply the entire one-make series worldwide.


It was circulated that the US would get a 2.0L SkyActive-G motor in the new MX-5 while the rest of the world received a 1.5. With today announcement, however, Mazda says that all Spec NDs will be equipped with a 2.0L engine. Power figures were not disclosed at this time. Will Mazda become the most raced marque in the world, With 940,000 MX-5s sold since 1989, it seems that’s a solid bet.
