Motorsport enthusiasts are most familiar with the Formula 1 WRC, NASCAR IndyCar and Formula 1 WRC. However, some series are less well-known that are even more entertaining to view. The Mazda MX-5 Cup is one of these.
In the second week in November, the single-make championship concluded its 17th season. Gresham Wagner was crowned champion after narrowly beating Selin Rollan and Michael Carter. We have the perfect video to show you how thrilling a Mazda MX-5 Cup Race can be.
The first race was held on November 10, 2012 at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. The race lasted for 45 minutes. It was exciting from beginning to end, making a Formula 1 Grand Prix appear rather boring.

If you’re pressed for time and can’t watch the entire race, at least watch the final 8 minutes or so as they’re an absolute must.
It is amazing to see the wheel-to-wheel battles and there were five or more drivers vying for first place in the last laps. Wagner drove from third place to first in just two corners. After power sliding through the finish line and diving into the corner, Wagner narrowly defeated Jared Thomas.
