Mazda’s Global MX-5 Cup car is easy to like. It is the relatively affordable turnkey racing version of the MX-5 Miata sports car, built up by Long Road Racing for competition in Mazda’s spec racing series: the MX-5 Cup (the car also can be raced in other series). Giving to charity also is easy to get behind, especially when the cause provides comfort and aid to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. That’s what Lemons of Love does, and the non-profit is raffling off an MX-5 Cup car for the fourth year in a row.
Along with a lemon-yellow roll bar, the latest Lemons of Love MX-5 Cup car also comes with a FAST cooling system, a 2020 24 Hours of Lemons entry fee, a single MX-5 Cup race entry fee, Pagid Racing brake pads (a trunk-full of them, per Lemons of Love), a Sparco racing seat, a Bell Racing Pro Series helmet, Safecraft Racing Belts, a ROUX helmet bag, CarbonX fire-rated underlayer, a Simpson gift card, and a two-night stay at the Luxury Motor Courts Villa in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
With the money generated by the raffle going to care packages and support for chemo patients, even those raffle entrants who don’t win will have something great to take away from the experience. The charity is looking to raise $250,000 and it is about a quarter of the way there as of this writing. Lemons of Love has enjoyed unique support from the car community, and we’re told that much of its financial support comes from the motorsports world. We encourage those from that world and beyond to visit Lemons of Love’s website and register for the raffle. Tickets are $100 apiece. You can read more about the charity’s work here, and follow along with the 2020 Lemons of Love MX-5 Cup car’s build as it happens.
