Thursday, May 27, 2010 - Okayama & Mazda MX-5’s star is definitely on the rise in the land of the rising sun. iRacing recently signed an agreement with the Okayama International Circuit that will see the former home of the Formula One Pacific Grand Prix join the growing number of international circuits available to our membership. And, thanks to some energetic web sites, many iRacers are now aware that we are already doing some preliminary work on the Mazda MX-5 in the hopes of introducing the popular two-seater later this year. (Although it should be noted that and Mazda have not, as yet, put pen to paper on a final agreement regarding the MX-5.)

The 2.3 mile, 11 turn Okayama International Circuit (formerly known as TI Circuit Aida) was the scene of the 1994 and ’95 F1 Pacific Grands Prix and, more recently, has played host to Formula V6 Asia, Super GT Championship International and World Touring Car Championship events. In addition to being one of the world’s most popular sports cars, the Mazda MX-5 is one of the world’s most raced sports cars and is a staple of the SCCA’s Pro Racing Playboy MX-5 Cup pro series as well as the Showroom Stock B amateur class.
