The Tracks of Spec MX-5: Summit Point

Summit Point Motorsports Park, in Summit Point, WV is a 2.0 mile classic track dating from the late ’60s. It has been the site of many SCCA races over the years. Spec MX-5 Challenge – East will visit Summit Point in June of 2018.

Driver comments on Summit Point show why it is a popular track:

  • the track is fast and fun, with both slow and fast corners
  • there is a long straightaway that helps lower-powered spec cars set up passes and practice drafting
  • the track has ample elevation change which creates additional camber challenges in many corners
  • the track has a friendly, family-oriented atmosphere

Check out this video of 2009 MX-5 Cup champion Todd Lamb driving a Spec Boxster in a Porsche Club race for a sense of the track’s complexities:
