MX-5 Cup New Testing Opportunities


The best way to determine if a race car is the right fit for the driver is for the driver to test drive it. It's not the simple, but it's close. Teams in the Battery Tender MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires have test day options available. In addition, Mazda and Long Road Racing are offering test day opportunities at Barber Motorsports Park, March 4-5.
