The Red Pill

There aren’t  many cars I want to (realistically) own more than an NA Miata.  Hardtop is key.  Chris Johnston’s daily is a fine example of living the Toronto life without compromise.  Just because its winter, it doesn’t mean your car should look like shit.

24 Hours of Daytona.

I missed out.  I do not subscribe to the SPEED channel. Mostly because its for NASCAR shills now.  Also, Are You Faster Than A Redneck?  Really?  Fuck that shit.  Looking at the highlights it seemed like an amazing race.  Both DP and GT fields had many cars still on the lead lap at the finish. All Euro winners.  With BMW, Audi and Porsche winning the 3 classes. Wasn’t expecting Audi to do so well.  And fun fact of the day.  The GX winning Caymans still used a stock (beefened up a bit though) 6 speed H pattern box.  Heel toe FTW.  The deisel Mazdas didn’t do so well.  😦

Bonarz Worthy Mazda

400hp+  DIESEL RWD RACEKOR.  All of that deserves caps.   Mind you it isn’t exactly production Mazda 6 base.  Take a tube frame Riley Grand Am GX chassis an ALMS LMP2 Mazda SkyActiv 2.2L deisel and wrap it in a sexy as fuck sedan body.  You have the 2013 Mazda6 Grand Am GX racecar.  WANT.   And just for the Canadians….Sylvain Tremblay who founded SpeedSource (the team prepping this car) is from the Great White North.
