Thursday, March 13, 2008 Part 3 of our Technical Analysis is more than just a discussion of the upcoming MX-5 Race Series, as we unveil a new name for Skip Barber’s Mazda MX-5 Miata-based racing programs.

In Part 1, we discussed the construction of the MX-5 Cup racecars. Part 2 detailed the racing school. In Part 3, we discuss the Skip Barber MAZDASPEED Challenge, which launches on April 5-6 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
