While Mazda is putting the finishing touches on the technical details of the Spec MX-5 car for 2020, they’ve published a teaser of sorts which includes an interview with Tom Martin, director of the Spec MX-5 Challenge. We’ll note that while there have been many attempts over the years to create “the next Spec Miata”, Mazda obviously has the experience and resources to do it. But what is “it”? Mazda’s idea isn’t to replace Spec Miata, but to create a cost-effective, spec-effective class that can be a step up from SM.
