BEHIND THE ZOOM Forums on Sept. 24

BEHIND THE ZOOM forums for Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and VIR are upon us.

The BEHIND THE ZOOM campaign is a series where 12 Mazda factory drivers and champions break down many of the tracks and venues that you race at. Many of these drivers will take you through a turn-by-turn discussion of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and VIRginia International Raceway to assist Mazda competitors with their preparation before racing these challenging courses. Q&A is encouraged throughout the forum. The drivers will use microphones, and be able to respond to typed questions by the Mazda racing family by either typing or speaking.
