The Mazda MX5 is a very popular car for racing. Miata cup competitions can be found all around the world, with the racers turning up in what are essentially modified road cars. It’s even the first car you get given when you sign up to iRacing!
Most importantly though, the racing is fun and close. So close that drivers often touch wing mirrors, literally. The video above is of the first lap of this weekend’s 5Club MX5 Cup on Silverstone’s International circuit. As the 3 leaders reach the Hangar Straight, watch Ben Short in the white car help hinder James Rogers’s rear view by folding in his mirror at 100mph!
