Thrilling battle for Global Mazda MX-5 Cup title16. September 2019 -
The 2019 Global Mazda MX-5 Cup is entering its decisive stage. With only two races remaining, six drivers still have a chance of claiming the title in the hotly contested one-make series. Fans can look forward to a thrilling season finale at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca (20-22 September).
After the last two races at Portland International Raceway, Bryan Ortiz (#4 Copeland Motorsports) is leading the drivers’ standings at 221 points. With his victory in the second race at Portland, however, Selin Rollan (#87 Sick Sideways Racing) also underlined his title ambitions once again. With a total of 210 points, he is only eleven points down on the leader. Third-placed Robert Stout (#28 McCumbee McAleer Racing) is at 197 points going into the major season finale, followed by Robert Noaker (#13 Sick Sideways Racing, 190 points), rookie Michael Carter (#08 Copeland Motorsports, 184 points) and Drake Kemper (#99 Sick Sideways Racing, 173 points) in fourth, fifth and sixth place respectively.
Meanwhile, the champion in the ND1 classification has already been crowned: during the most recent round at Portland, John Dean II (#16 Sick Sideways Racing) already wrapped up the title in the category of Cup cars of the previous generation.
The final two races of the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup (Rounds 11 and 12) will be held at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, 20-22 September.
