2014 Mazda6 SKYACTIV-D Grand Am Race Car from Rolex 24 at Daytona
Recently Mazda rolled out 3 new cars to compete in the Grand Am Race Car Series. These 2014 Mazda6 Sedans are powered by SKYACTIV Diesel engines. At the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, John Doonan Director of Mazda Motorsports, gives us some insights into campaigning a new set of race cars at the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona. According to Mr. Doonan: "Anyone that knows Mazda knows we dream big. Certainly the launch of the SKYACTIV Clean Diesel race engine in the 2014 Mazda6 at the Rolex 24 was an example of that. The results at the end of the race are not what we had hoped for, but we are part of a development project with this engine as well as with this new platform. We learned a lot and unfortunately the same issue happened with all 3 of the engines. This is common when developing a new race car. You can hone in on that particular issue and solve it going forward." "We are very excited about the next step. We go to Austin Texas for the Circuit of the Americas in just under a month for the next round. Hopefully we will have solved all the issues and there will be some track testing between now and then to give it a go and make sure we are prepared to continue the development process and prove the reliability of this diesel package."
