    Per Mazda Philippines, no mechanical breakdowns have been recorded in the past two seasons of the MSCC Miata Spec Series and said that the MX-5 Spec Series race cars “will go through an entire season only requiring consumables such as brake rotors and discs, and filters.”

    “What sets the MX-5 Spec Series cars apart from the others is that it remains road legal. It comes with a license plate, and with the climate control and infotainment system intact, it is not just good for the track, but for the road as well,” Mazda Philippines President and Chief Executive Officer Steven Tan was quoted as saying.
