IMSA “Cars Are Stars” – Episode 9: Mazda


It’s time for the next installment in our IMSA.com video series highlighting the technology and on-track accomplishments of each of the 17 manufacturers competing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.

Today’s featured manufacturer has been a participant in the WeatherTech Championship’s premier Prototype class with a variety of different race cars and technologies since the inaugural 2014 season. But Mazda’s history and record of success runs much deeper than that, as its 200 victories at the top level of IMSA racing will attest.

In fact, Mazda is third on the all-time IMSA manufacturer win list. Of course, few of those victories may be as sweet as the popular, breakthrough Daytona Prototype international (DPi) win in the 2019 Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen.
