New for 2020 MaX5 Racing has now rebranded to “Mazda Motorsport Club UK”. This has opened up the Championship to any Mazda Race Car and we are excited to welcome a number of new Mazda RX8’s to the grid this year! Although our website here will remain, the content will no longer be updated. For all the latest news on drivers, regs, registration and the 2020 calendar, follow the link below to our new website…

MaX5 celebrate 30 years of the MX5, and 25 years of the owners club!

On Sunday 23rd June, over 100 assorted MX5s decended on Brands Hatch Circuit to support the MaX5 Championship and celebrate 30 years of the MX5 and 25 years of their beloved MX5 Owners Club.

Members from several areas from across the South gathered together in the early summer sunshine to watch the MaX5 racing on track (with its unique mixed grid), and to talk and look at all things MX5.

After the race we drove the race cars over to the display area for the presentation of the race trophies. I think it must have been the biggest crowd the MaX5 racers have ever had for their awards, although there were very few requests for autographs but plenty of pictures taken with the drivers and their trophies.

Big thanks to Sarah Garret and the other area organisers for making the day so special (and for the many celebration cakes!!).

Lots of interest in the MaX5 Championship at the 2019 Autosport Show!

We had lots of visitors come and talk to us on our stand. They were drawn in by Paul Roddison’s Championship winning Mk4 MX5 looking fabulous (see pic below).

There was a lot of interest from people that wanted a cheap and safe way into motorsport. We  had people that already raced and wanted to build a car to MaX5 spec. We spoke to people from other championships such as the BRSCC Super Series (for Mk3s), 750MC Club5s, and BRSCC MX5 series. Our recent change of regulations to allow cars from other race series was really capturing people’s attention.  It is now easy to come racing with us on dates and circuits that suit your personal calendar.

There was also a lot of interest in hiring a car to race. This is perfect for people that want to see if MaX5 is the championship for them, or just want a quick, easy and relatively easy way to get on track. Some people take this route to build up points on their licence towards other, usually much more expensive racing that they have planned.
