The CSCC RX-8 Trophy is for Mazda RX-8 231PS first generation cars (2002 to 2008), running as a class within the Motorsport School Turbo Tin Tops Series.
Introduced in 2019, the 'RX-8 Trophy' is an ultra low cost class, for near standard, road legal Mazda RX-8. With safety equipment, tyres, brake pads and a few reliability modifications allowed, it is possible to build a race ready car to the limit of the regulations for less than £5000. You can even drive it to and from the race track!
For its maiden year, the class saw entries peak at 11 cars on the grid at Silverstone, exceeding its target. With many more cars still in build, 2020 is likely to be another successful year in only it's second season. It is the clubs aim to keep numbers low enough to avoid the politics and damage that sometimes occur in one-make racing, but have numbers high enough that there are sufficient cars to enjoy a close with.
For 2020, the RX-8 Trophy class will move from the New Millennium grid to Turbo Tin Tops. With lower average lap times among the hot hatches it will be a more suitable place for the Mazda's.
Races are 40 minutes in length with a 30 minute qualifying session on the same day. A mandatory pit stop allows entries from two driver teams as well as single drivers.
A 10 second winners penalty is applied to the class winner at each round, in order to reduce the likelihood of the same car/driver from dominating. This penalty is removed once it has been served.
