Fresh from Mazda's Hiroshima Japan factory, the stock MX-5 road cars are delivered to engineering development partner Long Road Racing in Statesville, North Carolina. The transformation includes disassembly of the production car and re-assembly of the race car, including a full roll cage and interior plus more than 250 motorsports-specific parts. Components of the car, including the Mazda SKYACTIV 2.0 liter engine are sealed to ensure even competition and a cost-effective platform.
