Race Prepped Mazda 5

Aw hell yeah!

Autblog posted pics from the One Lap of America and as I was perusing through the pics they had I noticed this race prepped Mazda 5!

This means that I have seen my first three modified Mazda 5’s in the past two weeks!  I would love to see pics of this thing running on the track.

If I can find anymore info on this I will definitely be posting!  If anyone has any info, send that shit my way!

    From Wiki —
    Mazda produced a limited number of Mazda5 units featuring all-wheel-drive but this version was not made available outside of Japan for the 2006 model year…

    Did these only come with the 2.0L engine?

    It actually has a sporty ‘fast look’ to it. I’m not surprised that someone looked at it and thought ‘RACING!’

    In the US, they came only with the 2.3L. Which was also shared with the MZ3. I do know that someone did a Mazdaspeed conversion to one of them and dropped in the turbo from the MSP3.

    This car was built by Autobarn Mazda out of the Chicago area. It is a full Mazdaspeed 3 engine swap and very well prepared for road course action. I work with Team MER in the Playboy MX5 Cup series and one of the drivers of the Mazdaspeed 5 was from Team MER. Jason Saini was that driver and has also blogged about the adventure in the One Lap. If you follow World Challenge Touring Car you will recognize Jason’s name. The 5 is a really tough little car and actually took first in it’s class in the One Lap if I remember correctly.
