In fact, the fastest-growing road-racing class in the United States is the Sports Car Club of America's (SCCA) Spec Miata class, with more than 1,000 identically prepared Miatas tearing up America's racetracks. Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) unveiled the next generation of Spec Miata at the New York International Auto Show.

The Spec Miata series provides an affordable, entry-level nationwide class whereby amateur racing drivers can compete in inexpensive, identically prepared first- and second-generation Miatas. The greatest attraction of the series is that all regions of the country use similar rules and regulations, enabling drivers to compete nationally and always remain competitive. Components for the cars are sold directly through Mazdaspeed Motorsports Development, which also supports the program monetarily with contingency awards to successful drivers.

Mazdaspeed's intention is to use this car as the prototype from which they will further develop the package of components that will transform the MX-5 for the 2006 season of a professional Spec Miata series. As testing continues, some of these parts may change as Mazdaspeed hones the car with the perfect combination of cost versus performance.

Often held in conjunction with SCCA professional road-racing events and sanctioned by SCCA Pro Racing, the current Mazdaspeed Miata Cup professional Spec Miata series is absolutely the least expensive way to participate in top-flight road racing in front of professional teams and large crowds.
