- I don't really see why the 202X people would use selection of top 2017 supercars for racing...

The MF Ghost race is labeled as a "vintage" race series since regular cars on the road in this timeline are all self-driving and unable to take part in racing. Who knows how Shigeno will explain how auto manufacturing suddenly shifted entirely to autonomous vehicles, if ever. "Ryo Takahashi did it."

I don't really see why the 202X people would use selection of top 2017 supercars for racing, they could as well use 202X's electric supercars from the same manufacturers

The answer to that has already been given. The whole concept is that the MFG is a historic racing series, using older cars instead of the electrics and self-driving cars that dominate the story's version of 202X.
(Speaking of which: I don't really see electrics taking over anytime before 2030. I doubt there's enough lithium in the world to make all the batteries required for that)
So yeah, it's just Shigeno's way of getting around the 199X problem of Initial D. He's setting the series years into the future, and giving it a reason to only focus on present-day cars regardless.

Edit: Tessou beat me to it.

Unfortunately, it looks like MF Ghost will be as slow paced as final years of Initial D - 110 pages so far, that makes more than half of the first book, and Livington didn't even sat behind the wheel...
