MCSCC Race to Save the Children Race and Test day

Road America

About this event


This registration page covers both the Spec Miata Charity race, and the Thursday Test Session for our joint weekend with IMSA!

The Race to Save the Children Spec Miata Charity event is a collaboration between the sanctioning body Midwestern Council, IMSA, and Road America.

While Spec Miata racers will compete in front of a large crowd on Sunday, the event schedule for the weekend is busy, resulting in limited track time. Spec Miata racers are able to enter the test day on Thursday, July 30 as well as participate in 30-minute qualifying and a 60-minute race on Sunday, August 2.
