2021 Spec MX-5 Cars Available To Order

Winding Road Racing built 13 new Spec MX-5 race cars for the 2020 season and is accepting orders for 2021 cars. These cars will be built to the specification for the Spec MX-5 v2 racer by Mazda Motorsports and Spec MX-5 Challenge.

“In 2020 we built 13 cars, and we are taking reservations for 2021 build slots now,” said Tom Martin, CEO of Winding Road Racing. “Our car have been very successful, winning the National Series Championship, qualifying on pole multiple times and winning races outright. We have built more cars than any other builder and we think that experience shows up in our reliability record.” The Winding Road Racing production process begins in October with the first delivery of a new batch of Spec MX-5 parts from Mazda Motorsports.

New builds begin with an un-raced, un-crashed, southern street car donor. This is stripped, a TIG-welded cage is added, and the interior is painted. The car is fully inspected and excessively worn or damaged parts are replaced. Street parts are replaced with race parts (a typical build has over 100 race upgrades). Safety equipment is added, and options such as data systems, driver cooling and graphics are added.

New 2021 builds are priced starting at $49,988, FOB Austin, TX. Beyond that base price, drivers will probably want to add some of the available options, which include data systems, radios, alternative seats, wheel sets, reliability upgrades and more.
