ZOOM-ZOOM Testimonials
Mazda provides more than the reliable racing platform that the competitors in the Formula Car Challenge use to power around the race track. For many of the series participants Mazda vehicles are our everyday cars that get us where we need to go as well as our fun cars that we drive for the joy of driving. View the testimonials below to learn why we say "Racing is our passion, Mazda is our car."

Telo Stewart - Racing Team Owner

“Environmental friendly vehicles are important to me. I was thrilled when Mazda announced the Tribute Hybrid and am proud to say that it is now my everyday vehicle. ”
 
Mark Milazzo - Formula Car Challenge Communications Director

“My wife and I loved our first Mazda 3i. We bought it through the Mazda website, searched inventory and closed the deal all over the Internet. We had that car for 5 years, and put over 80 thousand miles on it. It really was a great all around vehicle; very comfortable for long trips and great on the coastal switchbacks. We liked that Mazda so much that we bought a new Mazda3 5 door AND a new CX-7.”
 
Eric McCombs - Photographer, Formula Car Challenge

"With a growing family we were looking for a car that could be both practical and fun and the Mazda6 fits that description perfectly. My wife loves the room for four adults (plus a car seat!) as well as the 6-disc CD changer, sunroof, automatic transmission and trunk big enough to carry our loads while I love the power of the V6 engine and the sport shifting mode that lets me manually shift the gears when we travel fun country roads."

 
Kevin Woods - Pro FM Driver - 2008 Formula Car Challenge Champion

“When a day of racing is done I can climb out of my Pro Formula Mazda and still keep that "Zoom Zoom" feeling going when I climb behind the wheel of my Mazdaspeed 3.”

 
Emile Tabb IV - Crew Chief, Formula Car Challenge

"My very first car was a 1990 Miata, and now I have my second Miata. I have road raced and autocrossed as long as I've had my license, even winning a Regional Solo II Championship in 2000. I even drove a Mazda away at my wedding! I continue to participate in autocross events in my Miata and am also working on a Mazda rotary-powered kit car. I have always been a Mazda guy, through and through. It's the only car company that really speaks to me on an automotive enthusiast level."

 
Kevin Harrison -Mechanic, Formula Car Challenge

"I've put over 250,000 miles on my Mazda Miata. During that time it has gone from a daily commuter car, to an autocross and track day car, and back to being my everyday vehicle. When you work on cars everyday it's nice knowing that when the workday ends you can get in a reliable car that is fun to drive as well."

 
Virgil Cacdac - Mechanic, Formula Car Challenge

"My third generation RX-7 is my pride and joy and features the same rotary engine that is used in the Standard Formula Mazdas that race in Formula Car Challenge events. Mazda has perfected the rotary engine making it fast and reliable and I get a kick out of participating in autocross and track days in it whenever I get the chance."

 

Steve Carlson - Formula Car Challenge Fan

"Over the past couple of years we've attended several Formula Car Challenge races and spoken with friends that worked on the cars. When we decided to start looking for a new car, we visited our local Mazda dealer and were impressed with the new CX-7 and all the features it provided. The built-in navigation system has come in handy numerous times and the rear-view camera makes backing out of parking spaces a breeze, the CX-7 is fun to drive as well and has become our car of choice for our morning carpool."

 

Angela Lam - Formula Car Challenge Fan

"I learned about the Mazda5 from a friend who competes in the Formula Car Challenge. I went to a few races, and was surprised at how passionate all the mechanics were about Mazdas. I love my Mazda5 – the cargo space was my initial attraction, but I quickly fell in love with this affordable vehicle that gave me the easy ability to use my MP3 player, haul my entire family around and get great gas mileage as well.  The Mazda sales team couldn’t have been better & the MyMazda website for maintaining my records, updating me with info & being in touch with my vehicles needs & time frames is also a great benefit for me."
