Kumho Motorsports Mazda RX-8 wins SCCA Solo2 National Championship

Thirty two drivers showed up to do battle in B Stock at the Sports Car Club of America Solo2 National Champions in Topeka, KS. In this class the RX-8 is the new kid on the block among a number of Nissan 350Z's, BMW M3's, Toyota MR2 Turbo's and the class favorite Porsche 968.

After the first day of competition the RX-8's were holding down the top four spots in the class with the 968 in the 5th spot. Phillip Weber was in 1st followed by Eric Jones, Jason Isley and Joe Goeke.

On day two the overall lead changed hands on the first run when Isley set a blistering time that would stand up as the second fastest of day.

It was a great year for Mazda with the RX-8 taking 8 of the 9 trophy spots in B Stock.

For Isley it was his first SCCA National Championship. Earlier in the season he also scored the first SCCA Prosolo win for the RX8 at the Fontana, CA race. Isley has raced a number of Mazda products in the past but spent the last five years in a Corvette. Isley said “it was great to get back into a Mazda, they have a great racer support program and the cars are awesome. I was also very excited to bring them the first B Stock class championship”.

In 2006 Isley will return in the RX-8 to defend his title again with primary sponsor Kumho Tires on board.
