Official details of the partnership have not been released. But Mazdaspeed and ModSpace will have a supporting role with the No. 16 Dyson Racing Lola-Mazda that runs in the American Le Mans Series. The Mazda-powered Lola was revealed at the Performance Racing Industry trade show in Orlando, Fla., last week wearing the ModSpace logo on the side.
The partnership will also support a Mazda RX-8 in Grand-Am’s GT championship and a Mazdaspeed 3 in the Continental Tire ST Championship.
“Mazda and ModSpace have a similar mind-set which will allow us to work effectively as a team," said John Doonan, Mazdaspeed team development manager. “While many partnerships take months of negotiations to determine if there is a fit, with ModSpace, we were able to develop a mutually beneficial plan in just a few days."
