The Mazda Road to 24 is a series for sports car racers, while the Mazda Road to Indy provides driver scholarships in the open-wheel ranks. These two intersect in the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Mazda Motorsports has announced that Indy Lights champion Spencer Pigot will join the Mazda Prototype team, and veteran racer ben Devlin will join for the third year at Daytona. Pigot is the first driver to win four Mazda development scholarships. He stated, “The Mazda Road to Indy has been very important to my development as a driver. The cars within the ladder system train you to compete at the top levels of motorsport. Because I had done a full season with the Indy Lights car with Mazda turbo power, I was able to get comfortable with power and downforce of the Prototype pretty quickly. Driving in the Daytona 24 Hours is a new experience for me which I’m very excited about. Mazda has been a huge part of my career and I can’t thank them enough for the opportunity to drive in the Rolex 24.” Ben Devlin’s resume includes the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and many others. He will drive the No. 70 car with full-season co-drivers Tom Long and Joel Miller. At 33 years old, he says, “I know I’m the old guy, but I can fill my role after driving these types of cars for over 15 years. I want to pass my experience on to the young guns, and I believe I still have the speed, and most importantly, consistency to help the team succeed.” For the everyday race car enthusiast, drop by CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona and test drive the award-winning MX-5 Miata.
