The race-kitted Skip Barber Racing School edition Mazda2

With the spider stories grabbing the attention of Mazda6 watchers, it might be easy to overlook the other offerings from the land of Zoom. At a recent Mazda event at Wild Rivers in Irvine the media got a little drive-time in the Mazda 2 and 3. Here are a few shots of the new Mazda 2 and four-door Mazda 3 as well as two cars from Skip Barber Racing School. Both of the stock-version Mazdas were great fun to drive on the track, but you can of course imagine the thrill of driving a race-kitted Mazda... It's never enough! Feedback from the trained professionals of Skip Barber Racing School is always appreciated as well. - John-Fredrik Wright
