MOTORSPORTS DEVELOPMENT ANNOUNCES GRAND-AM GT RACING PROGRAM
SpeedSource, Inc. to
lead development of tube-frame Mazda RX-8 racecar
MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development
today announced the continuation of its partnership with Florida-based
SpeedSource, Inc. to produce a Grand American Road Racing
Association Rolex Series GT-class Mazda RX-8. Set to make its
competition debut during the 2006 Grand Am season, the Grand Am
GT RX-8 is based on a tube-frame chassis jointly developed by
SpeedSource and Riley Technologies, and powered by Mazdas
three-rotor 20B rotary engine.
Mazda has always been a leader in
both amateur and professional motorsports, said Steve
Sanders , manager, MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development.
Developing a Grand Am GT-legal car is the next step in
expanding our already successful Grand Am program. And expanding
our support to competitors interested in racing the RX-8 at the
next level is a logical extension of our motorsports program.
Renowned chassis developer Riley
Technologies worked closely with SpeedSource to design the steel
tube-frame chassis. A six-speed EMCO sequential transaxle puts
the three-rotor power to the wheels.
Downing/Atlanta was responsible for
developing the high-strength carbon-fiber body panels that mimic
the shape of the Mazda RX-8 street car, except with a no-nonsense
racing stance. In addition, the body develops considerably
greater downforce than the stock body would, while minimizing
The 20B three-rotor engine is the
cornerstone of Mazdas Grand Am GT RX-8 program. With its
compact size and light weight, the rotary engine brings with it a
vast history in sprint and endurance racing. Revving to over 9,000
rpm, the 20B rotary engine will sound quite unlike any other
engine on the grid.
Coordinating the development for
SpeedSource, Inc was team owner Sylvain Tremblay. Tremblay and
staff are an experienced Grand American team, with a long history
with Mazda and extensive knowledge and experience in tuning and
racing rotary engines. Tremblays SpeedSource team took top
honors with their Mazda RX-8 in the Grand Am Street Touring
division, winning the drivers and manufacturers
Being able to offer these high quality
components to race teams from a single source simplifies the
entire build process. Components ranging from a bare chassis to a
complete car can be purchased from SpeedSource. A complete car,
including chassis, full drivetrain and engine management system,
suspension, wheels, tires and bodywork is priced from $280,000.
Comparable racecars are priced higher, yet may provide lower
MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development
also will be offering the Downing/Atlanta bodywork panels as well
as the Mazda 20B rotary engine on a made-to-order basis. MAZDASPEED
Motorsports Development will offer a lucrative contingency awards
program for the RX-8 in Grand-Am GT for the 2006 season.
