Slater Makes Solid RX8 Cup Debut at Morgan Park

June 12, 2018

Following his impressive debut performance in the Mazda MX5 Cup at Sydney Motorsport Park last month, young gun Brayden Slater slotted into our Mazda RX8 for Round 2 of the Mazda RX8 Cup Series at Morgan Park on the weekend.

The Mazda RX8 Cup Series is a national category that runs as part of the Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS) and it receives a high level of exposure, including live streaming of Sunday’s races.

Brayden qualified a fine fourth on Saturday, and despite managing some engine temperature issues he finished inside the top 10 in three of the four races, scoring ninth overall for the weekend.

We highly recommend the RX8 Cup Series for drivers looking for an affordable, one-make category with national-level coverage, and another driver to benefit from RaceAway Track Time’s driver development services, Aaron Prosser, has chosen to compete in the series for this reason.

Originally from New Zealand, Prosser has raced in speedway for the last couple of years, winning the Mod Lites national title in 2017.

 

Deciding he wanted to become involved in circuit competition, Prosser built his own car and made his debut at Morgan Park on the weekend. He finished a fine third overall, even leading the weekend’s final race for a number of laps in treacherous conditions.

The next round of the Mazda RX8 Cup Series will be held at Wakefield Park, 17-19 August and we’ll again be offering an arrive-and-drive deal for a driver who wishes to compete in the series, without the logistical exercises of preparing a car themselves.
