Mazda revealed its diesel Skyactiv-D powered Prototype that is set to compete in the United SportsCar Championship that came as a replacement for the ALMS and the Gran Am series. The car will make its racing debut at the Rolex Daytona 24 Hours next January.
Mazda has been absent from the global racing stage for quite a few years. Their latest and most significant achievement is their historic overall win at Le Mans in 1991 with the rotary-powered 787B race car. It's so refreshing to see them back, now we hope they also have plans to race with the top LMP1 league at Le Mans in the near future.
