Providing excitement at Round 2, Pilipinas Shell VIPs and guests were treated to a taxi ride in the MSCC Miata Spec Series cars by the racers.

The MSCC Miata Spec Series MX-5 uses a showroom stock 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G engine mated to a 6-speed Skyactiv manual transmission. In order to extract even more grip, the suspension components have been upgraded and reinforced with CUSCO sports coil overs and chassis braces.

A custom stainless steel exhaust system, developed by local company Drift Xaust, maximizes air flow and enhances the aggressive racing note emanating from the MX-5’s 181-horsepower mill. A Sparco competition steering wheel, racing seat, harness and safety net, along with a new CUSCO racing roll cage, are all installed in each car to secure the drivers’ control and safety. All Miata Spec Series cars come fitted with GT Radial Champiro SX2 tires mounted on custom 17 x 8.0 J Rota Strike wheels.

The MSCC Miata Spec Series is sponsored by Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation, GT Radial tires, and Rota Wheels. Round 3 is scheduled on October 29th (Race 5 and 6) and November 26th (Race 7 and 8). All races will be held at the Clark International Speedway.
