The transformation of a brand new Mazda MX-5 into a Global MX-5 Cup race car is amazing. This build process will take you through the normal steps from start to finish in delivering a professionally-built, factory-supported race car.

1/43 We receive brand new MX-5’s from Mazda.

2/43: The cars received are in Sport trim

3/43: They must be white because they’re 15lbs lighter than a painted car.

4/43: Disassembly of doors and interior….

5/43: Bumpers…

6/43: Dashboard….

7/43: Disassembly complete.

8/43: Lift work: The MX-5 is drained of its fluids and receives a racing transmission with EMCO gears.

9/43: Additionally, a limited-slip differential is installed.
