My season in the Mazda MX-5 Cup has been a steep learning curve. The SCCA Pro Racing series primarily follows the TUDOR United Sports Car Championship, along with one weekend with the Verizon IndyCar Series at Houston. Being at venues such as these has been a real treat, and quite different to the Southern California club-racing scene where I competed for my first season of racing last year. Working with the CJ Wilson Racing team has been great, too; they run a very professional operation and are racing enthusiasts. The Mazda MX-5 Cup car is not a huge change to what I had been driving last year, so adapting to the car was not so tough. However, the competition in MX-5 Cup is extremely high, and I have struggled to meet my expectations.

Mazda Racer Liam Dwyer Ready to Race Again: U.S. Marine Staff Sargent Seeking To Repeat Lime Rock Win


When Hollywood scripts a racing movie, they tend to go overboard. Having an injured U.S. Marine Staff Sargent winning a professional race, in only his second start, just miles from where he grew up, on the third anniversary of his ‘Alive Day’, after 50 surgeries since that injury, on Memorial Day weekend. Who would believe that? Believe it, as that’s exactly what happened to Liam Dwyer and his Freedom Autosport Mazda MX-5 when he co-drove with Tom Long to the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge ST win in late May at Lime Rock Park.
