    Wow - that's awesome! Very impressed that Mazda is stepping up to support Canadian grassroots racing and great work by the VCMC team to get the club involved in something like this

    Your registration link doesn't work - is it just the usual Mazda Motorsports registration or is there something special for Canada?

        What type of VCMC event is eligible? All or just certain ones?

          I'm awaiting clarification but the assumption is the Auto-X Cup events for the time being.

            Will the prizes be awarded per class, per group, or per event? As in, 1st, 2nd & 3rd in STS? Or just on PAX?

              These are per GROUP prizes ("Class" in this case means our competition groups, eg OPAX, Stock, NS1, NS2, NS3, etc, not vehicle class, though your car must qualify to be in their respective classes of course).

              No minimum driver qualifications for these prizes either!

                This may be an obvious question, but I assume you need a Mazda to qualify?

                Can I just put a Mazda emblem over my Subaru emblem? heh heh

                  The car would have to be a Mazda to qualify.

                  (On a side note, I was told that replacing other manufacturer emblems with the Mazda logo would net you a 2.0 PAX value. )

                      I have updated the first post with the claim process, thanks for your patience...

                      Good news, as long as you are signed up for the Mazda Motorsports program, there is no further action required on your part! Contingency award payouts will be sent to competitors in ONE payment at the end of the season. We may contact you for mailing address info as required.

                      I would strongly suggest you carry the Mazdaspeed decals and photo document it just in case. Besides, each sticker is worth at least 5HP right??

                      Cheers!

                        I'm just wondering if this program will be applied to the Canadian Chanpionships from last week?

                          Was just going over the Mazdaspeed Motorsports site and trying to discern the same thing.

                          I was in the middle of firing off an email... Will report back with the result.

                            Thanks. It was good seeing another piston-less wonder taking it to the masses out there!

                              Sorry for the delay. The Canadian Autoslalom Championship event unfortunately does not qualify for the Canada Mazda Motorsport Contingency.
