BRSCC Mazda MX-5 SuperCup


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.

No other UK championship offers such close and competitive racing between identical modern production sports cars, this cost effectively! Former champions and race winners in the MX-5 SuperCup have gone on to successfully compete in series such as the British GT Championship, Ginetta GT4 Supercup and the Renault UK Clio Cup, showing that the MX-5 SuperCup attracts and creates some of Britain’s best driving talent. The BRSCC Mazda MX-5 SuperCup Championship also features a dedicated Race Centre at all championship rounds. This will be the focal point of the championship in the paddock and will enable all competitors and team owners a meeting point to socialise. An excellent resource for race information and complementary hot and cold drinks.

*NEW FOR 2018* - As well as the MX-5 SuperCup there will also be a new Mazda MX-5 Super Series, an additional contest for Mk3 generation MX-5s that are also eligible for and built to compete in the SuperCup. With the SuperCup joining the TCR UK Championship support package for 2018, the Super Series was created to allow complete novices or those who wish to move from a Mk1 to a Mk3 a place to race without the weight of expectation racing in front the TCR UK spectators would bring, whilst also remaining with the same teams they may have raced with in the Mk1 Championship and still compete on the same weekends at the same circuits throughout the year as the Mk1s. To find out more about competing in the Super Series, make sure you contact Mandy Andrew on 07973 665176 or mandy@brscc.co.uk.
