Grand-Am Race Gets First Diesel Sedan, Mazda6 GX
Rudolph Mazda West in El Paso, TX is excited to divulge the details of the first diesel-powered, four-door sedan to race in the Grand-Am series, the Mazda6 GX.
Online PR News – 01-February-2013 – El Paso – Mazda has a pretty long history with racing, and in particular, the Daytona 24-hour race. Since 1975, Mazda has achieved an incredible 23 wins. Their most current win was in the GT class with the Mazda RX-8 back in 2010.
But Mazda is making racing news once again and this time with the all-new Mazda6. In the GX class, the Mazda6 is competing with a diesel engine. Using diesel-powered cars to race isnít too unusual, though the Mazda6 GX is the first diesel-powered, four-door sedan to be used in the racing world. The new Mazda6 GX is also bearing the smallest engine of the competition, at a mere 2.4 liters.
Another pretty rare factor about the situation is that the Mazda6 with SKYACTIV-D engines (powered by diesel fuel) are not yet being produced on a large scale and are not available yet for the public. Most racing models are available to the public in similar, non-racing versions.
Readers interested in the newly redesigned 2014 Mazda6 either with or without Mazdaís diesel Skyactiv-D technology can contact Rudolph Mazda West. The 2014 Mazda6 with a gasoline engine is available now at Rudolph Mazda West in El Paso, TX.
