Mazda aims to make racing cheaper

Mazda has unveiled a new racecar that is aimed at showroom stock racing at the most basic level. Taking up the hobby racing is far from cheap, but Mazda is trying to make racing less expensive with the new Mazda2 B-spec racecar.

Mazda says that a brand-new B-Spec racecar delivered from a prep company would cost a driver about $25,000. However, Mazda sells a B-Spec "kit" and the automaker says if you picked up a used car you can build your own race car for about $15,000. Mazda is also putting contingency money behind the series.

Any driver who wins and SCCA or NASA National Championship will make $5000 in Mazda contingency payments. The racer who wins either of those championships will also have the ability to race at the Mazda Club Racer Shootout with prize money worth $75,000. The first race for the series will be Saturday, December 8 through Sunday, December 9 at the NASA 25 hour at Thunderhill Raceway in California.

Supersexy Alfa Romeo 6C to Share Platform with Supersexy Maserati Alfieri

Aug 26 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It’s been almost a year and a half since we dropped a huge stack of knowledge on the Alfa Romeo 6C coupe, and little has changed since then. Plans still call for it to be sexy as hell (the rendering above shows an early styling direction), share underpinnings with a Maserati, and arrive in roughly 2017. But there has been one major development. Thanks to a recent report from Auto Express, we know exactly with which Maser the 6C will be twinned: the stunn ...

Aug 25 2014 2:18pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

File this under things we would really like to see: An all-wheel-drive Mazdaspeed3 and a Miata Coupe, both cars that Automotive News reports could be on their way.

Top 10 Most Expensive Cars Sold at Pebble Beach: Ferrari, Ferrari, Ferrari . . . (and a Ford!)

Aug 18 2014 5:39pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Ferraris are the most desirable cars ever. At least, that’s the conclusion one could make based on the results of the vintage-car auctions at Monterey Car Week. Nine out of ten of the richest sales originally came from Enzo’s factory. Heck, the reddest brand even scored—with a superb 1954 Ferrari 375MM Scaglietti coupe—its first-ever Best of Show award at Sunday’s big concours at the Pebble Beach Golf Links. For decades, vintage-car auctions have been an integral part of the Pebble festivities. ...
