Mazda Motorsports has boosted its customer racing program with the addition of an all-new Mazda3 TCR race car. The Mazda3 TCR will make its track debut in 2020 as part of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.
Developed by the team at Mazda Design America in Irvine, California, the manufacturer has ensured that the aerodynamics of the Mazda3 TCR are compliant with all TCR regulations.
“The Mazda3 features the outstanding design and engineering that Mazda is known for, and because of that, it is a fantastic foundation for our new Mazda3 TCR,” said John Doonan, director, Mazda Motorsports. “We have looked forward to returning to the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge for several seasons, and everyone at Mazda is very excited that we will do just that in 2020.”
The Mazda3 TCR will be powered by a turbocharged, four-cylinder engine producing 350hp and will use a paddle-shifted 6-speed transmission. Developed and supported by Long Road Racing, the Mazda3 TCR is homologated to compete in any of the 36 TCR-sanctioned championships worldwide.
