The new team managing FARA USA Announces a Debut Cash Prize race!
FARA has been successfully racing high performance cars for the past 16 years, racing mostly exotics and open wheels. David Tuaty and Jose De Las Casas, who took over operations in late 2022, have been working diligently to expand the racing options available through the FARA events held throughout the year.
In 2023, the new management brought all new excitement surrounding each and every race weekend. Capitalizing on this success, the think-tank came up with a money race. We are now announcing the exciting new series to FARA USA, Pro Spec Miata.

The three main goals for this six-race series are simple, as are the rules which will be followed to the letter.
- A Pro Spec Miata rule set is that of the current SM series and has been set by NASA and the SCCA GCR. If it says you can't do it, don't. Please bring a compliant SM, if you are found to be non-compliant, you will not be invited back.
- The competitor has a choice of tire, either the Toyo (RS1) or Hoosier (SM7.5) tire. These will be the only compliant tire per weekend. The matching rain tire will be required.
- Each vehicle entered must have a working data acquisition system and camera in the car. Traqmate, AIM or Motec is acceptable. If some other data acquisition is used, please contact FARA prior to the event to discuss.
All video and data must be surrendered if requested by an official. The only reason would be for compliance or an incident. If a competitor does not comply, it will be discussed by the officials with possible disqualification.
