"The Mazda3 MPS has been a great car to drive over the last five days," said Bates. "It's powerful so its fast, has good brakes and is very well balanced so it builds your confidence and you need confidence to go fast in any rally."

-- April Sees Mazda Racers On The Road From Coast-to-Coast --

April 21, 2007 (IRVINE, California).
The Grand Prix of Houston will roar back to JAGFlo Speedway at Reliant Park this weekend, but the Grand Prix isn’t a single race. Rather, it’s a three-day weekend showcasing the best of American sports car and open wheel racing. Each race is unique, but they all share a common link: Mazda, including three races that are 100% Mazda.

The Cooper Tires Presents The Champ Car Atlantic Championship Powered by Mazda continues to be the premier open-wheel development series in North America. Now in its 34th season, the championship is noted for its long history of graduating its stars into Champ Car competition and has helped produce past Champ Car champions Paul Tracy, Jimmy Vasser, Bobby Rahal, Danny Sullivan, Michael Andretti and Jacques Villeneuve. Recent Champ Car competitors include Alex Tagliani, Andrew Ranger, Katherine Legge, and A.J. Allmendinger. 2006 Series champion Simon Pagenaud and runner-up Graham Rahal also join the Champ Car ranks this season. Competing in Swift 016.a chassis powered by a 2.3-liter Mazda-Cosworth MZR engine while riding on Cooper Tires, competitors will fight for the 12-race championship and the unique $2 million Champ Car series champion's bonus. Houston will be round three for the series as the drivers chase points leader Raphael Matos who has won the first two races.
