With the announcement by all SCCA and NASA regions of their complete 2020 schedules, Spec MX-5 Challenge, LLC has released its final schedule for the 2020 race year. As previously announced, there will be 10 Marquee events at which drivers can score points toward the 2020 Spec MX-5 Challenge Championship. There will then be an 11th Championship event, with additional points, culminating in an expected $100,000 prize package.
The 2020 Spec MX-5 Challenge presented by Toyo Tires event calendar is as follows:
Each Marquee event brings together multiple series drivers so that car count is boosted and drivers get to experience competition with a wide range of talented drivers:
Drivers from each series score points in competition with their fellow series drivers, but are on track at the same time as drivers from another series. For example, West Regional Series drivers will run in the season opener at Willow Springs against Invitational drivers. Then, later in the season, West Regional Series drivers will drive side-by-side at Laguna Seca against National Series drivers. Drivers in each regular season event can earn contingency money from Mazda.
The Spec MX-5 Challenge Championship will be held in November at Circuit of The Americas, the F1 track in Austin, TX. The top drivers from East Regional, West Regional, National and Invitational competitions will bring points earned during their regular seasons and then race directly against each other at the Championship for additional points and prizes.
