Spec MX-5 to Become SCCA Runoffs Class in 2024

The Mazda Spec MX-5 (SMX) car class, part of select SCCA Road Racing events for several years, will be recognized as an SCCA Road Racing Runoffs class beginning January 1, 2024.

All SCCA U.S. Majors Tour and Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA Super Tour weekends will include an SMX class, and the group will have an official race at Road America in 2024 as a fully recognized National Championship Runoffs class.

“While the creation of a ruleset in the GCR for SMX competition is not yet fully completed, it will closely mirror the current specifications laid out for the Spec MX-5 Challenge Series,” SCCA CRB Chairman John LaRue said.

Based on the ’06-’15 Mazda Miata MX-5 (NC) chassis, the SMX class is designed as an affordable, reliable, tech-able and fun-to-drive option for SCCA racers. SMX, being added to the lineup of SCCA Runoffs classes starting in 2024, offers new and existing Club members a place to race in that targets a cost-effective and level playing field.
