Mazda MX-5 GT is a racing version of the legendary roadster that the British branch of the Japanese company has prepared to take part in Britcar Dunlop Production GTN Championship.

After a good start this season, they are now busy fine tuning and upgrading this fast roadster for the upcoming race at Thruxton Circuit on 11 and 12 June 2011. Since the last race, held at Donington Park on 8 May 2011, where the team secured their second podium finish, Jota Sport has improved the rear brake package, modified the differential, added a new induction system and developed bespoke dampers. The car will be competing big names like BMW, Lotus and Ginetta.

The Britcar Dunlop Production GTN Championship is contested over ten races from March to November including a race at the Spa Francorchamps circuit in Belgium.

“Thruxton will be the fourth race of the Britcar Dunlop Production GTN Championship race series, with just three races run, the Mazda MX-5 GT car has secured second in its class in the championship and fourth overall. This is testament to its bullet proof reliability, nimble handling and lightweight. The latest modifications will make the MX-5 GT race car an even stronger contender against the more powerful race cars in its class,” comments Graeme Fudge, PR Director, Mazda UK.
