MR2 Classic Racing Series Overview

The MR2 Classic Racing Series is a long established series for the Mk1 Toyota MR2, manufactured between 1984-1989. It’s a cost-effective way to enjoy motorsport with a standard production specification sports car with no drivetrain modifications allowed to ensure this series is in the price bracket for new racers and experienced race hobbyists alike. Don’t be put off by the age of the cars – the regulations are written to allow some aftermarket parts which increase reliability, are more cost-effective and more easily obtainable than standard parts.

The emphasis is on driver ability and not large technical budgets, which is why the regulations are controlled for the series to ensure the cars are equal in performance. This has proved to give some incredibly close racing throughout the whole grid over the years.

You can convert your own street car to cheaply conform to our series and the MSA regulations, or if you’d rather have one of our club build teams do the hard work for you there are a number of affordable options available. If you’d rather just enjoy your racing and leave the hard work to someone else then a number of teams also have cars available to hire on an arrive and drive basis. Also, because the series has been long established, race prepared cars are available for sale in the classifieds.

The past couple of seasons have seen some of the closest and cleanest racing to date, and 2018 is promising to see some more wing mirror to wing mirror action, with a paddock atmosphere other series would envy.
