-Mazda RX-8 edges out BMW to win Grand AM Cup title-

IRVINE, Calif. - Spectators witnessed history at last Saturday's Lexus 250 in Fontana, Calif., as the SpeedSource Mazda RX-8 racing team climbed the podium for the fifth consecutive race, clinching both team and driver championships in the Grand AM Cup. This is the first professional racing championship for the RX-8, the world's only rotary-powered sports car.

Throughout the 2004 race season in the RX-8's inaugural production year, the SpeedSource RX-8 team battled the Number 95 Turner Motorsport BMW wheel-to-wheel. But when the season's dust had settled, SpeedSource RX-8 team co-drivers Sylvain Tremblay and David Haskell had piloted their number 70 car to the top of the point standings.
