ARL Mazda Cup Season 3
The Apex Racing League Mazda Cup returns on the 4th October! Featuring the Global Mazda MX5 Cup car once again, the new season will run across 9 meetings, each consisting of three 15 minute races.
Season two of this championship produced fanatic racing throughout, as expected in one of the best sports cars in the world. The short races and large reverse grids make for some intense action, that is great to watch on Apex Racing TV. We are excited to expand our track selection this season, with us heading not only to free content circuits, but some of the best tracks on iRacing, such as SPA, Road Atlanta and Hockenheim.
The series is accessible to everyone, with fixed setups being used and an amateur drivers championship to be fought, meaning everyone can fight for the prizes worth almost £900.00 in value, including trophies and subscriptions to SDK Gaming and Apex Racing Academy.
The Mazda MX5 Global Cup car is the starting car for all iRacing road members as a low powered vehicle to teach the basics in car control. However, the sports car is one of the best cars to battle in, with side by side action possible at every turn and a relatively even playing field due to the simplicity of the machine. Despite being at home on tight circuits, visiting venues such as Spa and Hockenheim will enable thrilling draft races that will only be decided once the chequered flag falls.
This series is open to anyone, from rookies to veterans. Whilst measures have been made to make it accessible for new drivers, experienced racers will not find a better arena to have action packed racing and exhibit their race craft skills.Join us, Monday

I've been racing in ARL for several years, taking part in the Mazda, Porsche Cup and GT series. I'm an amateur racer and was in need of help to improve. Joining the leagues has helped me work on my race craft for official iRacing races.John TresidderMazda Cup, Porsche Cup & GT Driver
The streams are held by Apex with fabulous commentators, and with a great group of racers on Discord.
From taking part in ARL leagues, I strongly recommend signing up!
Raced a couple of ARL seasons and they were by far the most professionally run leagues I've been a part of. The stream is entertaining with a great commentary team and it's good to watch back the day after the race. Admins do a cracking job keeping an impartial eye on any racing incidents.Rob WinterMazda Cup & GT Driver
Best league I have done so far in iracing, very competitive racing from front to Back, I would recommend Apex leagues to anyone! Some of the best and cleanest driving I have witnessed in iracing for a long time!Jason Hodgson
There's plenty of racing in a series regardless of skill level. ARL attracts great talent, and racing with those drivers will make you betterDan ParmeleePorsche Cup & Mazda Cup Driver
