2016 Mazda MX-5 Cup Racer Costs $53k Ready to Race
Factory -built racing cars that are ready to hit the track can be incredibly expensive. Take that M6 GT3 racer from BMW that cost around $430,000 ready to run. For racers on a much (much, much, much) more modest budget, Mazda has rolled out the MX-5 Cup car and the price is nearly affordable at $53,000.

Road and Track Tests the 2016 Mazda MX-5
I get quite jealous when other writers get to drive cars I want to drive before I do. One of the cars I want to drive the most is the 2016 Mazda MX-5. I know the new model has less power than the old car offered, but anyone who has driven an MX-5 or Miata will tell you power isn’t everything.

Mazda Demos 2016 MX-5’s 50/50 Weight Balance
One of the things that can be difficult to explain to someone in words is what exactly balance is when it comes to a car. I always find that it is much easier to put a student in a car, take them out on the track and let them experience what it feels like when the car is well balanced in high-G corners.

2016 Mazda MX-5 Rated for 36mpg on the Highway
I daily drove a 2013 MX-5 Club Sport for a long time and averaged about 28mpg on the highway. In mixed city use, it was around 24mpg. The close ratio transmission in the Club Sport did nothing to help fuel economy with the car spinning above 3,000 rpm on the highway at cruising speed.

2015 Mazda MX-5 Club Adds the Goodies Drivers Want
I spent a couple years hooning a 2013 Mazda MX-5 Club Sport around the racetracks in Texas and making people with “fast” cars hate themselves. If you want to track a MX-5, the Club is the model you want.

Mazda Shows 2016 MX-5 with All the Accessories
I am a big fan of the Mazda MX-5/Miata platform. I have owned several Miatas and a MX-5 over the years and driven them very hard on the track. Few things are more fun than putting a low-powered car up the tail of a “fast” car in front of you and not letting that fast car driver get away.
