Mazda Motorsports today announced open registration for the 2017 Global Mazda MX-5 Cup Challenge. It's a high-stakes race weekend for some of the sport’s best up-and-coming drivers. Last year this event saw competitors from the U.S., Japan, Australia, the U.K., Sweden, Poland, Germany and Switzerland all battling out on track.

The event features a $110,000 prize pool, with $75,000 going to the overall winner. The two-race, total points event will be hosted at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on October 12-15, 2017. Registration is now open at MazdaMotorsports.com to all racecar drivers around the world, excluding Mazda Motorsports’ factory drivers.

Interested racers must apply for and receive approval for an INDYCAR-issued MX-5 Cup license to compete. All Mazda teams are eligible to enter. Complete details are posted at MazdaMotorsports.com.
