B-Spec Series to Hit Track Running in 2012 - Spinout

Rest assured driving a slow car fast is more thrilling than driving a fast car well below its potential.

It’s been a few years in the making, but Honda and Mazda’s tag-team effort to join forces with the SCCA and create a B-segment-specific racing series have been successful. In fact, Mazda’s communications officer, Dean Case, told us as many as four other manufacturers are “coming on board with B-Spec kits and contingency programs.”

Case also announced the availability of the Mazdaspeed B-Spec kit for the Mazda2. The kit features Bilstein coilovers, race-spec coil springs, a rear sway bar plate, strut bearing, after-cat exhaust system, braided stainless brake lines, Hawk performance brake pads, a high-flow air filter setup, oil cooler and A/C delete kit. For sure, the engine mods won’t turn the 100hp Mazda2 into a fire-breather, but rest assured driving a slow car fast is more thrilling than driving a fast car well below its potential.
