Many will be surprised by this. Heck, I'm even a little surprised that I've decided to do this!
Bruiser, aka The Jalapeno is for sale. 2011 Mazda MX-5 built for SCCA autocross in DP.
Let me start by saying that I believe cars should be driven. I've made the decision for various reasons to run our new car in STR next year and have been agonizing over what that means for the Jalapeno. While I could run him occasionally, or take him to track days, I feel like he would be sitting doing nothing more than I would like. Add to that the fact that we've got 2 sets of tires that only have Nationals on them along with another full set of brand new tires, and it's a waste for him to only run a little bit.
I have put a LOT, both financially and personally into building this car. It has been a work of love and the car is an absolute hoot to drive. It competes for TTOD at a lot of events and in the 5 years I've been running it, I've won a National Championship and taking 2nd at the other 4 National Championships.
It starts right up, is very reliable, and easy to drive.
Below is some information on what would come with the car. I'm sure there is plenty more that I've temporarily forgotten.
The car is not street legal, and would come with a bill of sale only (that's the way I bought it.) I'm keeping our enclosed trailer, so you'll need your own trailer (though I'd happily deliver the car locally.) Car is located in Seattle.
