#hashtags: #Mazda Prototype #Rolex 24 #Daytona #Mazda

The Mazda Prototype team opened the 2016 season with a new race engine - the MZ-2.0T - and high expectations for the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The gas-fueled engine performed well, powering into the lead of the race three times with the No. 55 Mazda Prototype, before mechanical issues knocked both cars out of the race. Unofficially, the No. 55 car finished 10th in class while the No. 70 Mazda finished 13th in class. Despite not finishing the 24-hour race, the Mazda Prototype team leaves Daytona with optimism and looking forward to the remaining races of the 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The next event is the 12 Hours of Sebring on March 19.
