Thursday, January 07, 2010 LAKEVILLE, Conn. – Skip Barber Racing School today announced its 2010 MAZDASPEED Challenge schedule, which features the addition of both an eighth Race Weekend and two new venues; Grattan Raceway and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. As part of the MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development Ladder, the MAZDASPEED Challenge champion will be invited to the annual Mazda Club Racing Champions Shoot-out, the winner of which earns a package to compete in the following year’s SCCA Pro Racing Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup.
Todd Snyder, VP of Competition at Skip Barber Racing School, noted the growth of the Challenge, now entering its third season. “Last year was a turning point for the MAZDASPEED Challenge, with the season finished up with strong fields at the last two weekends. Adding an eighth Race Weekend to the mix is a vote of confidence for the series.”
“The addition of Grattan and Mid-Ohio are more indication of how the series is growing”, continued Snyder. “New tracks add to the diversity of venues that make the MAZDASPEED Challenge so… challenging.”
