Due to their popularity as track cars the MX5’s are always being thrown around.

Classic styling does not seem to age.

Due to the carburettors being mounted on the drivers side of the engine the mesh intake in place of the headlight is pure race car.

 Some of the less popular models make for great track cars.

Stay tuned for a feature maybe even two, on some of the cars from the day, one of which you would not expect to find at a track day like this.
