RaceRoom - Mazda MX5 Racing Cup Car Preview Video

Two weeks ago, KW Studios, announced the upcoming Drivers Pack DLC for RaceRoom Racing Experience, which will be released on December 14th. The RaceRoom Drivers Pack DLC will include the French Circuit de Charade, the Crosslé 9S, the Crosslé 90F, the Mazda MX5, and the Praga R1.

Now KW Studios shared some new media, showcasing the Mazda MX-5 ND2 Cup model in action in-game.

The iconic Mazda MX-5, also known as the Miata in the US is the go-to starter car for club and spec drivers all around the world.

The MX-5 Cup race car is based on the MX-5 road car and further developed by partner Flis Performance in Daytona Beach, Florida, USA where is converted into a race car.

The car is completely disassembled, the tub is cleaned of seam sealer and sound-deadening material, and an IMSA, INDYCAR, and SCCA-approved roll cage is TIG welded into the car.  The cage contains complete NASCAR-style door bars on both sides of the car (making it the ultimate HPDE driver/instructor car) and is tied together across the firewall through the interior of the dash leaving a neat appearing and fully functional dash.  After roll cage completion, the cage and tub of the car are painted in an automotive paint booth.

After cage installation and paint, the car is assembled with over 250 race car-specific parts.  The parts added to the car provide handling, endurance, safety, and power enhancement specifically designed for the car after hundreds of hours and thousands of miles of both on-track and lab testing by automotive mechanical engineers and professional race car drivers. 

The turn-key, ready-to-race MX-5 Cup car is powered by a Mazda SKYACTIV-G 2.0L four-cylinder engine that delivers 155 plus hp. All that power is transferred to the rear wheels by a SADEV six-speed Sequential racing transmission.

The core RaceRoom Racing Experience racing simulator is free for all and can be installed from this Steam link. Commercial add-ons are available in the RaceRoom Store.
