South Regions MX5 25/30 Anniversary get together at Brands Hatch Max5 Race

On Sunday 23rd June,  the South Regions of the MX5 Owners Club will come together to celebrate the anniversary of the MX5. The venue is the Brands Hatch Circuit in Kent on a day when the Max5 racing championship will be on track providing two races for the visiting MX5 enthusiasts to enjoy.
To offer maximum entertainment, the Max5 Championship are keen to get as many MX5 race cars on track as we can. Max5 is the only place where you can see all models of MX5 on the same grid. 

Come and race with us at Brands Hatch

So if you’re a past racer or entirely new to Max5, please come and join us for this special day/weekend of celebration. To make life easy, we are offering free registration to drivers from other race series. All you will need to pay is your race entry for the weekend. This will cost around £350, and will cost even less for a grid of over 22 cars.
There is no need to modify your (already compliant with your current series) car to meet Max5 regulations because visiting cars will not be racing for Max5 points. You will be racing for final position in the 2 races on Sunday, with qualifying and a possible practice session on the Saturday. A test session may also be available on the Friday.
And there will be fun off the circuit too with the very friendly and supportive Max5 family.
To find out more, please contact Jon Halliwell

Bring your MX5 road car!

Anybody that wants to come along in their MX5 road car for the day can park up in the reserved display area opposite the pit straight. There’s also a lunchtime parade on the circuit for anybody that fancies a safe lap or two of Brands Hatch.
There’s a 20% discount on tickets purchased in advance with the code MX5OC. 
Come and join us and make this an MX5 celebration to remember.

Lots of interest in the MaX5 Championship at the 2019 Autosport Show

We had lots of visitors come and talk to us on our stand. They were drawn in by Paul Roddison’s Championship winning Mk4 MX5 looking fabulous (see pic below).

There was a lot of interest from people that wanted a cheap and safe way into motorsport. We  had people that already raced and wanted to build a car to MaX5 spec. We spoke to people from other championships such as the BRSCC Super Series (for Mk3s), 750MC Club5s, and BRSCC MX5 series. Our recent change of regulations to allow cars from other race series was really capturing people’s attention.  It is now easy to come racing with us on dates and circuits that suit your personal calendar.

There was also a lot of interest in hiring a car to race. This is perfect for people that want to see if MaX5 is the championship for them, or just want a quick, easy and relatively easy way to get on track. Some people take this route to build up points on their licence towards other, usually much more expensive racing that they have planned.
