2013 Mazda6 Grand Am GX SKYACTIV-Diesel


Man!  I've been looking all over for some footage on 2013 24hr Rolex Testing of the New Mazda6 Grand Am GX SKYACTIV-D and this is the best I can find for the time being.  You would  think Mazda would be working on some type of Epic film for the day view of this little monster.

Well any way this vid is the best thing going right now until race day I guess and happy to get this, thanks to the film maker you did a better job than Mazda! 400hp+ DIESEL RWD with a tube frame Riley Grand Am GX chassis and ALMS LMP2 Mazda SkyActiv 2.2L diesel in a sedan body. You have the 2013 Mazda 6 Grand Am GX racecar.

On The Dyno! 

ANDREW DEATHERAGE AKA WOODY, ENGINE BUILDER


Here’s the sound of this little monster that we're waiting to hear from the Daytona Testing but I'm not hearing it!  A race-tuned Mazda SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine getting a quick dyno workout. Prepped and tested by Speed Source Race Engineering of Florida, the engine is due to kick asphalt in an all-new Mazda chassis in GRAND-AM Road Racing’s new GX class in the Rolex Sports Car Series competition for the 2013 season. 
That whine you hear at around :15 is the two-stage turbocharger spooling up. What you can’t hear are all the other manufacturers who were defeated on the track by rotary-equipped Mazdas sobbing at the thought of a new race engine from Mazda.
