The Mazda RX-8 was a strong contender in the Grand-Am road racing series here in the US since its introduction. It was also a fan favorite due to its screaming rotary engine and beautiful display of exhaust flames.
As we enter the 2013 season, the RX-8 is gone and a family car is taking its spot. Meet the all new Mazda6. Pretty to look at, but not a car that you would imagine seeing racing against some exotic machinery.
