Mazda supports drivers who get on track through SCCA’s track day program
For those looking to get on track in a low stress environment or improve their existing track driving skills, there’s SCCA’s Track Night in America. Since its launch in 2015, thousands of enthusiasts have taken advantage of the program that allows anyone to place his or her street car on the racetrack and push their limits in a safe, controlled environment. The SCCA supplies instructors at Track Night events, and while those instructors do not ride along with participants, they actively offer advice and words of encouragement to ensure everyone’s time at the track is both safe and fun.
Supporting this program is Mazda and several professional drivers racing under the Mazda banner. In the most recent video produced by Mazda, past Idemitsu MX-5 Cup Presented by BFGoodrich® Tires champions Nathanial Sparks and John Dean discuss various aspects of Track Night, as well as track driving in general.
“Moving up [to an intermediate or advanced group] is not just about going faster,” Dean explains in Mazda’s latest video, “it’s about developing the basics that will help you be consistent and have more fun in the long run.”
“You may think one way to advance is by driving harder and pushing yourself, but it is more important to be consistent and aware,” says Sparks.
Dean and Sparks also discuss one of the perks of driving a Mazda at a Track Night in America event. “You can join us in the Mazda Team Support membership if you drive a Mazda at Track Night,” says Sparks.
The Mazda Motorsports Team Support Program enables Mazda drivers access not only to discounted stock and competition parts with affordable delivery via Mazda’s distribution centers, but it also allows access to Mazda Motorsports technical experts who assist Mazda racers in their drive to win.
