Federal Supplying UK’s Ma5da MX5 Cup
The new Ma5da MX5 Cup started on 24 April at Snetterton and continues at Rockingham, Brands Hatch and Croft during the season, with a “Winter Championship to take place at Donnington and Brands Hatch in October and November – and Taiwanese manufacturer Federal has announced that it will supply its 595 RS-R sport competition line as the official tyre of the new series throughout the year.
Taken directly from successful Championship in America, Japan, Italy, and Belgium, Ma5da Racing is described by Federal as “a proven race formula and has a considerable interest in the UK from its full launch in December 2009.” Ma5da Racing is operated by drivers to provide what the tyre supplier describes as “a safe, positive environment for learning, progression and competition at the national level”. All competitors are required to possess at least an MSA “National B” Advanced Racing Driver Schools license and to become a member of the British Race and Sports Car Club to race in the series.
In addition to the enthusiasts attending the races, the Federal brand will also receive the benefits associated with the series’ television coverage, which includes spots on digital channels Motors-TV, Men and Motors, and sort-of terrestrial station Channel 5.
