SpeedSource Castrol Syntec Mazda RX-8 Scores Podium at VIR
Submitted by Berny Herrera on Wednesday, April 29, 2009 - 4:53pm

04/29/2009 - The SpeedSource Castrol Syntec Mazda RX-8 team looked to rebound from a somewhat uncharacteristic showing at the Rolex 24 and a podium finish at Virginia International Raceway is just what they needed. After qualifying on the pole the day before, Nick Ham continued where he left off to start the race. Ham and fellow Mazda driver Dane Cameron led the first ever all Mazda front row in Grand-Am competition to the green flag. Despite the 90+ degree temperatures Ham stayed cool and out of trouble and ran some very consistent and quick lap times. "Nick drove great this weekend" stated David Haskell, team Technical Director. "First with an awesome lap in qualifying and then with a very consistent and trouble free opening stint, when the car handles like it did at VIR it's so much easier to run fast consistent laps. I am so impressed with how the SpeedSource team has constantly worked on developing this car, it continues to improve every race" Ham added.

Submitted by Streetrally on Thursday, March 26, 2009 - 8:34pm

Finally, the 2009 racing season has begun! March 22nd marked the season opener for the 2009 Super GT series, and was sure to make the trip to cheer on the lone rotary entrant- the M7 MUTIARA MOTORS AMEMIYA SGC 7. Okayama International Circuit (formally known as TI Circuit Aida) is a course that has an interesting history. It actually hosted the 1994-95 Formula One Pacific Grand Prix events, and has been in the Super GT schedule since 1998, back when the series was still known as JGTC. Did the 7 fare as well in the race as it did in testing at this commemorated track? Find out after the jump.

Super GT 2009 - START!
Submitted by Streetrally on Thursday, March 12, 2009 - 7:03am

The 2009 Super GT season kicks off next week at Okayama International Circuit on March 22nd. As with any racing series there have been a few changes in the rules, regulations, and teams, and Team Amemiya Racing is no exception. Actually, make that Team M7 RE- Amemiya Racing. That’s right, the team has changed sponsors this year, and with the switch comes an altered exterior. The new look is a departure from the simpler styles of previous Amemiya machines but, this correspondent is rather partial to the bold styling of this year’s rotary machine.
