The RX-8 bar and the MX-5 2005-2015 roll bars are completely interchangeable

For the MX-5, I offer the RX-8 Bars for race and the softer bar for road.

Pre Brands, I ran softer front springs which helped turn in a bit which is why I will now try a softer front roll bar.

Must admit I was surprised  looking at the TV just how softly sprung some of the BTCC cars were, but I suspect this was more to do with maximising aero to make the front splitter lower that allowed when static
I was too, when the BTCC cars were warming the tyres and brakes the cars weren’t half rolling around. The track temperature was very low and the soft tyres they were using were not even going off during the race so possible that that made the cars softer to get more heat into the tyres?

We were sat just before the Hollywood turn and right where the cars changed gear so we were getting ears full of bangs car after car lap after lap. They all have side exit exhausts pointing too the outer of the circuit which makes it even better. Here’s a little video of the cars going passed. Would have taken more photos but alway find it hard enjoying the racing of your watching it through a lease.

I’m really impressed that roll bar is a straight swap! Are the rx8 and mx5 the same width then?

How did you get on Grant? Good day?

Yeh it was really good! Lots of excitement, few crashes and spins!

The touring cars were a lot louder than I was expecting which was good and the porches were a lot faster and quieter than I was expecting!! 485hp NA! Form a 4 litre flat 6.

Me and my dad agreed that if we had the money to go racing it would be in the Porsche cup.

Was a bit cold but the sun made a couple of appearances. I forgot my coat so had to borrow my dads jumper! Didn’t take any other photos as we were enjoying the racing so much, think my son enjoyed it a lot too but he thought the BTCC was too loud as he has sensitive hearing being so young.

All the races were dry races too so they weren’t half going for it, but when they went onto the green stuff they had no control.

One of the clios went off backwards and hit the wall really hard near the old chicane causing him to spin about three times. Luckily the driver got out just fine but I bet he will be really sure in the morning as he had a really hard impact backwards. His car was really mangled, no amount of buffing would sort that!
