For the 2018 Spec MX-5 Challenge season the series has now received 22 applications for 20 seats (10 East and 10 Central). But the series isn’t full yet. The application process closes on January 31, so there is still time for interested, qualified drivers to get an application in.
Series officials have accepted 12 applications to date, which means there are still 8 seats open. “We want to ensure a high quality field, with good competition throughout the pack, so we’re taking our time in evaluating applications,” said Todd Lamb, one of the principals of the series. He noted, “We’re making sure we ask questions about driver resumes and driver expectations, so that we put together the best field we can.”
