USCC: Mazda to enter Prototype class powered by SKYACTIV technology

Mazda Motorsports decided to enter the United SportsCar Championship (USCC) with a pair of SKYACTIV-powered prototypes.

Through competing in the top "P" class of the USCC, Mazda's objective is to "demonstrate Mazda SKYACTIV Technology to both hardcore racing fans and the mainstream public".

For the occasion, the Japanese manufacturer promoted drivers Sylvain Tremblay, Tom Long, Joel Miller and Tristan Nunez from its factory-backed GX class roster of last year.

"There is no shortage of great racing talent in America," explained John Doonan, Mazda North America's motorsport boss.

"Sylvain, Tom, Joel, and Tristan are all talented behind the wheel, but just as importantly, they act as a true team, supporting everyone at Mazda and SpeedSource."
