Most of the dirt Victorian Motorkhana venues are fairly smooth and when setting the test areas, the organisers will try and avoid any major dips or humps.
Also the MX5 is not the lowest vehicle, that honour goes to a number of specials with sometimes less than 50mm clearance.
As to how well a stock
MX5 goes on dirt?
On a dry day I generally get into the top 15.
My results for VMC Rd 2
was a 7th outright in a field of 32.
For Rd 3 of the Deniliquin Autocross Series, I ended up 12 outright in a field of 40 (my focus is Motorkhana, the Autocross is just for fun)
On stock suspension, very occasionally I'll hear something hit underneath however it has never resulted in damage.
Can't say the same after falling of the track at Winton.Fun
Have a look at some of the video's posted around this thread, I can guarantee every driver will get out of a MX5 with a smile, how long they keep their smile depends on the results.
