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.

Is Mazda planning a two-door 6 coupe for 2017 model year?

Nov 3 2014 9:03am CST | Source: Driving Canada

The front-wheel-drive, two-door coupe market might be decidedly slim these days, but Mazda is looking to change that. According to a report from Australia’s AutoExpress, we could see a Mazda6 coupe as early as 2016 for the 2017 model year. It’s not quite the RX-8 successor enthusiasts have been hoping for, but a two-door Mazda6 should satisfy those pining for something sporty with two doors and a fixed roof for the next little while. The news, however, does come at somethin ...
