Mazda3 Sport GT vs Porsches, Cobra, BMW and others ...

And beat them!


Ran in Targa Newfoundland in 07 in Grand Touring class (Targa more about pure speed, Grand Touring still fast but more about precision.)

17 cars in GT class, 7 porsches of different models, a BMW MZ4, Factory Five Cobra, Caterham Super Seven and others...

6 day event, final results... See here:

http://www.rallyscoring.com/results/2007/Targa/Targa07TourPress0.htm

Car was stock except for a Helius precision odometer, K&N air filter and running BF Goodrich KDW NT tires...

Running again this year with upgraded sway bars...
