Dear Competitors

I’m pleased to announce to all drivers free registration for the 750mc “Roadsports” events, in addition to this the 750mc will also be offering a discount of approximately 25% for drivers who choose to compete in both “Roadsports” and “Mx5 Cup” on the same weekend.

For the Donington “Roadsports” event the entry fee will therefore be £245.

If your interested please contact me for more information and registration forms.




Bob Marsh’s Replacement

Dear competitor

Due to other commitments Bob Marsh will only be in our paddock as a friend and guest.

Hence after much thought, and with Bob’s approval, “5 Club Racing” have appointed accomplished driver and another true gentleman “Ed Gay” as the race meeting liason officer.

We all wish Ed well in his new role and welcome him to the “5 Club Racing” family and I am sure we will all help him find his feet in this new position.

Mx5 Taster Day Update!!

Hi Everyone

Due to the unprecedented uptake of the Taster Day, Donington Park do not have the availability of track time we now need. Luckily “Javalin Trackdays” at Snetterton have been able to find us the track time you need with a higher noise limit and larger faster circuit.

The date is the same 16th February and everything else remains the same, see the updated details below.

“5 Club Racing” Mx5 Cup – Taster Day

Thanks for registering your interest in the “5 Club Racing”/750mc MX5 Cup at the Autosport Show.

Still mulling it over and not sure if it’s the right step? We might make it a little easier for you!

Drive a fully race prepared 5Club Mx5 Cup race car on the high speed Snetterton circuit; experience the thrill of Coram’s never ending corner and find the Bomb hole’s blind entrance.

This is a fantastic opportunity to explore the limits of your own driving skill while gaining an understanding of the dynamics and mechanical make up of the MX5.

Free race instruction throughout the day and technical advice.

Later in the day if time permits, you can opt for a fast lap, in the same spec car as you will buy, build or hire, with an experienced MX5 Cup driver.

Wearing their talent spotting hats, Alyn and his team will be available for a Q&A session with every driver.

In all, a great chance to test your mettle and get out on track with professional race-winning tutors and car builders.

 The question is who will be seen competing in 2014?

Drivers MUST be over the age of 17 and hold a full and valid UK driving licence
All Drivers MUST have an instructor in car at ALL times.
