Mazda MX-5 Cup Car Being Raffled Off

The Mazda MX-5 is the “most raced car in America” according to Mazda and it has held that title for quite a long time. The uninitiated might think small convertible is the last car anyone would want to race. Though, car enthusiasts know that the MX-5’s light weight and affordability make it the perfect platform for weekend racers.

Mazda figured this out early and made major moves to support their customers who enjoy motorsports. Eventually, Mazda started the MX-5 Cup program in which customers could buy kits or take their MX-5’s to registered shops to have their cars easily converted to race cars. From there they could compete in Mazda’s one-make MX-5 cup series or several other series that Cup cars are legal to race in.

It’s a great program that continues to this day. In fact, someone could go out right now and buy a complete MX-5 Cup car for $68k or $80k fully loaded which is very cheap relative to other customer race car programs.

That being said, generally speaking $80k is still a lot of money. Well, what if we told you that there is a way for you to get a brand new MX-5 Cup car for 100 bucks?

That’s right. There is a very real possibility that YOU can be the owner of your own MX-5 Cup car for less than the price of a Nintendo Switch.

Mazda MX-5 Cup car being raffled off by Lemons of Love

How is this possible? It’s all thanks to the organization called Lemons of Love. Lemons of Love puts together care packages for people who are impacted by cancer and other serious illnesses.

Since 2017, they have raffled off a brand new Mazda MX-5 Cup car to raise funds for their efforts and they are doing it again this year. Each raffle ticket is $100 and as far as we know, you can buy as many as you want. Their fund raising goal is $250k and at the time of publishing, the auction has raised $146.6k.

We’re hoping this post gives that number a little boost.

It should also be mentioned that there is much more than just the MX-5 Cup Car to be had. Along with the car the winner will also get:

A Trunk-full of Pagid Racing Brake Pads (literally, a trunkful) • HANS device Head & Neck Restraint from Simpson • Bell Racing Carbon Fiber Helmet • 1 Year Magazine Subscription of Racer Magazine • Racequip 365 Outseam Racing Gloves • FAST Cooling Shirt • 24 Hours of Lemons entry fee for a 2021 Lemons race • Speedcom Intercom • Roux Gear Bag • 2- Night Stay at an exclusive Luxury Motor Courts Villa in Elkhart Lake, WI • Custom Lemon Yellow Roll Cage • 1 Set of Safecraft Racing Belts • CarbonX Fire Rated Underwear (top and bottom) • Additional Stock & Racing Parts • $50.00 Winding Road Gift Card and more.
