SVRA Expands Spec Miata Eligibility  - First Gen 1.8L Cars Now Eligible to Compete – First Race Weekend April 28-30 -

IRVINE, Calif. (April 14, 2017) – Due to racer interest, the previously announced addition of early first generation Spec Miatas has been expanded to include all first-gen cars, both the early 1.6 liter models, and the later 1.8 liter cars.  The first weekend for the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) 'Mazda Miata Heritage Cup' will be April 28-30 at Auto Club Speedway, in Fontana, California.

'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.

For Mazda racers, competing in the inaugural Mazda Miata Heritage Cup races during the SVRA Auto Club Speedway weekend on April 28-30, there may be no more interesting weekend this year.  For a $295 entry fee a racer will receive:

• 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.
