I.L. Motorsport Racing

Racing Following the example of the successful MX-5 racing series in Japan, Usa and England, the MAX5 racing championship (www.max5racing.nl) was founded in 2008 as part of the Dutch DNRT race series. This race series offers a perfect introduction into the world of motor racing. It is one of youngest and fastest growing classes in the DNRT race series.

I.L.Motorsport was involved from the start in 2008 and since 2011 we have three racecars with two permanent drivers and one race car that can be hired by anyone that has a valid circuit racing license.

Only MX-5 NA 1.6 (construction year 1989 – 1993) 115HP are permitted for racing. The minimum weight including driver should not exceed 960 kg. In order to reduce cost and ensure the principle of equal opportunities, only small changes to the cars are permitted. The Dutch regulations comply in great part with the British regulations. This allows drivers to compete in the UK and measure themselves with British drivers and cars competing at circuits such as: Zandvoort, Assen, Zolder, Oschersleben and Spa Franchorchamps.

Requirements for the car:

  • Roll cage
  • Racing seat and racing belt
  • Gaz coilover shocks
  • EBC racing brakepads
  • Max5 airfilter
  • Team Dynamics racing wheels withToyo R1R tires
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Move battery to center of the trunk
  • Remove interior (not the dashboard)

Recommended changes to car:

  • Aluminum radiator
  • Plastic headlight cover with air inlet
  • Race exhaust with race cat (sound volume in accordance with regulations)
  • Shave head

Max5 We at I.L.Motorsport racing can make your motorsport dream come true. We supply the parts and help you to race with your very own racecar. Most of our products are tested by our team during racing and optimized for racing and upgraded whenever possible.

In the Dutch MAX5 series there are also sprint races included next to the semi-endurance races. At semi-endurance races the racers can spend a lot of time on the track. Because multiple sprint races are driven at weekends and at semi-endurance racing a pitstop is mandatory, it is possible to share a car with two or more drivers.

MAX5 allows for affordable racing, close battles and professional motorsports. That is what makes this series so attractive – not only for drivers, but also for spectators. Are you interested or do you have questions? We will gladly answer you at info@ilmotorsport.de


Next to the sponsoring the MAX5 series, I.L.Motorsport also supports the Mazda Endurance Racing Team. More information about the racing schedule and results can be found at: http://www.facebook.com/mazdaendurancechallengers
