'Spec Miata has reached yet another milestone with our recent inclusion into the world of vintage racing.  This gives our racers access to additional race weekends and the unique experience that only the SVRA provides.  Expanding eligibility to include the 1.8 liter cars was in response to racer interest,' noted David Cook, business development manager, Mazda Motorsports.

• A two-day race weekend plus a test day for a total of approximately two hours of contact-free on-track time (vintage racing is not meant to be a contact sport.
