Mazda6 Claims Sixth Racing Win

August 12th, 2013

SkyActiv-D Mazda6 RacecarMazda’s diesel beast has done it again! We at Borgman are blown away by the SkyActiv-D Mazda6’s continued winning streak. Mazda Media has this to say about their latest win:

Momentum is a powerful thing.  The SpeedSource Mazda6 SKYACTIV-D Clean Diesel team scored their sixth straight Grand-Am GX class win to extend the manufacturers championship points lead for Mazda.  Taking the win was Joel Miller and Tristan Nunez in their #00 VisitFlorida.com Racing Mazda6.

The #70 Castrol Edge Mazda6 of Sylvain Tremblay and Tom Long qualified on the pole and led early before being delayed with a power-steering problem.  The middle part of the race was led by the BGB Motorsports Porsche before Miller closed in on Spencer Pumpelly and took the lead with under five minutes remaining in the two hour and 45 minute race.

The SKYACTIV-D Clean Diesel engine in the all-new Mazda6 is a true production-based engine.  The engine is 51 percent stock by parts count, and 63 percent stock by weight.  Mazda chose this path as it is the most honest way to demonstrate the quality, durability, and reliability of Mazda cars.
