One Car, 25 Drivers, One Hour Each
November 30, 2009 (Irvine, Calif.). Rick Weldon has options for the longest endurance race in America. More than he wants to count. Actually, Rick crunched the numbers to realize that he has over a trillion driver combinations… in just the first nine hours!
Rick Weldon will be managing the driver rotation for the Mazda “25 in 25” team. Mazda, which has the largest pool of road racers in the country, and quite likely the largest percentage of OEM employees with competition licenses, has assembled a very special team to cap off the 2009 season. 25 drivers will take a turn at the wheel of the same car, the largest driving team ever assembled for the annual NASA season ender.
25 in 25
The “25 in 25” team will be racing a Mazda MX-5 Miata that has competed in the SCCA Pro Racing Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup series with a few modifications for the endurance race. The car and team was assembled with help from Mazda partners at BP, BFGoodrich Tires, and Mothers. This was an “after-hours” project where many of the employee drivers also contributed elbow grease to the car preparation. Continue reading “MAZDASPEED GOES BIG FOR THUNDERHILL”

AWR is proud to announce new engine mount kits for the 2003-2008 Mazda6. We’ve previously had individual engine mounts available for the Mazda6. Now you can save money when you buy a kit rather than individual pieces. We also have specific engine mount kits for the MAZDASPEED6.
Mazda North American Operations’ president and CEO, Jim O’Sullivan, confirmed today during a meeting of the company’s top dealers that the MAZDA2 subcompact, or B-Car classification, car will be sold in the U.S. beginning in late 2010. It was previously announced that the car also will be sold in Canada, beginning at about the same time.
“You’ve asked us for it for a while now, and we’ve been studying the market to make sure we can make a business case for it across North America,” O’Sullivan told the assembled dealers. “As consumers’ tastes and attitudes toward small vehicles have changed, we now believe strongly there is a place in our lineup for a car below our current least-expensive car, the MAZDA3. MAZDA2 will be true to everything that makes our cars stand apart from the competition: it will be stylish, fun-to-drive and a heck of a value. In short, it will be Zoom-Zoom.” Continue reading “MAZDA CONFIRMS THAT MAZDA2 SUBCOMPACT CAR WILL BE SOLD IN U.S. AND CANADA”
