After the success and continual growth of the ever popular one make Mazda RX8 Cup series on the east coast, the series is expanding to Western Australia as a state championship‼️

The RX8 CUP SERIES came into inception in mid-2017 as the brainchild of long-time production car racer Ric Shaw. Ric wanted to apply his knowledge base to create the most cost- effective one-make national production car based category in Australia, and the rapid expansion of the category is testimony to the dedication of Ric and the rest of the management team.
The philosophy of the category was to base the vehicles around 3E Production Car specifications, using a series 1 Mazda RX8 as the base, with further restrictions applied to simplify construction and maintenance. The RX8 is well-balanced, with inherent performance and handling characteristics that suit motor racing applications. The RX8 is also a modern looking vehicle, which has attracted a loyal following of rotary enthusiasts.

With RX8 Cup being the only one make rotary formula in Australia it has become one of the core categories on the National Hi-Tec Oils Super Series program, due to its affordability, consistently high competitor numbers and close, entertaining racing. It is a category that provides a fun environment for racing, and one where talented drivers are able to demonstrate their abilities at a national level. Cars are currently being built and are already up and running at the home of Perth Motorsport Raceway and Collie
