Here's the link for the Mazda program - https://www.mazdamotorsports.com/get-st … embership/
Requirements for membership.
1. Be a legal resident of either the United States, Canada or Mexico
2. Have a valid membership with a sanctioning body/organization approved by Mazda such as the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) or the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) if you desire to compete (e.g., Track Day members do not need a membership)
3. Either be building a Mazda for competition or have competed in one sanctioned event approved by Mazda within the last 12 months
I got in because I do track days in my not-Lemons Miata. They added track day participation for membership about three years ago.
Mazda is quite generous with the program. Big discount on OEM parts - less than dealer wholesale. Discount on Mazda and third-party competition parts.
On the other hand, since when I buy OEM-ish parts for my track day Miata, they're used or RockAuto closeouts. I let my Mazdaspeed membership lapse. You have to submit new proof of qualification yearly. I haven't put any go-fast parts on it for a couple of years, but I may be in the market soon, so I should re-up.
Contact them to how you qualify. I'd be interested to hear if Lemons counts. Although wouldn't help us, unless Ford is doing a support program for Merkurs.
