Bomarito, Cameron Move Up with Mazda

Atlantic Championship drivers Jonathan Bomarito and Dane Cameron were announced at the PRI show, as drivers of Mazda RX-8s in January’s Rolex 24 At Daytona. Bomarito will share the No. 70 SpeedSource Mazda RX-8 – which won the GT class in the 2008 Rolex 24 – with co-drivers Nick Ham, Sylvain Tremblay and David Haskell, while Cameron will embark on a full-time Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series season alongside co-driver Doug Peterson in the No. 30 Racers Edge Motorsports Mazda RX-8.

“At Daytona Test Days, we ran four really talented drivers from the MAZDASPEED Motorsports ladder and we’re pleased to announce that Jonathan Bomarito will be joining Sylvain, David and Nick for the Rolex 24 At Daytona," said John Doonan, Manager of Motorsports Team Development for Mazda. “They’re looking to bring a few more Rolexes around the Mazda offices."

“Atlantic was definitely great preparation for this next step in my career," Cameron said. “Any driver who has raced in Atlantic has definitely come out of the series a better driver. I feel that I’m a better-rounded driver than I was. Last year was good experience as a one-car team, but this is a new chapter for me. This is the right thing for my career long-term. In a 24-hour race, anything can happen. It’s great to stay with Mazda and I’m really excited to be with this new program."
