This series is a great opportunity for low cost rear drive fun, we are selling our Blue 2004 Mazda RX-8 231bhp version, 6 speed manual as we are planning a new venture. Built by us to meet the Classic SportsCar Club (CSCC) RX-8 trophy regs, has been a great experience and will be sadly missed.

Back in 2018 It was a standard road car purchased from a local chap who used it as his weekend plaything supplied HPI clear and with service history.

We have had this since late 2018 when the CSCC first announced it would be running the series and we have spent the last 2 seasons building, refining, and running in this series (when time allows), see details and regs of this great series here:

Built and maintained by Fareham College Motorsport department team, where current driver James, heads up the department. A great fun drive, very forgiving chassis, makes a superb novice and low cost competitive motorsport series option.

Can run in many different series, with 750MC, or BRSCC, most clubs have a series it will fit into.

Always run with the best warm-up and engine care advice the industry experts can offer (correct pre-mix used to support engine life). Regular fluid changes a well sorted car that is ready to go immediately, with all the safety equipment in date and properly fitted.

Bodywork does show some age and a few marks as expected from a good usable racecar.

Since build, It has run a few test days, and only 4 races so still plenty of life left.

Lots of receipts and history with the car to support development

Car is located in Fareham/Southampton area, and can be viewed on arrangement, any questions drop me a message and we will get back to you ASAP, Price can be Negotiable.
