The RT24-P will make its racing debut at the 2017 Rolex 24 at Daytona in late January where it will compete in the prototype class.
The prototype racer will be powered by the turbocharged, four-cylinder Mazda MZ-2.0T engine which makes approximately 600 horsepower. I wonder if that'll fit in my Miata.
The new racer was designed with Mazda's Kodo Soul of Motion design language.
The name RT24-P indicates the 2.0-liter engine, the four cylinders and the prototype racing class.
Mazda worked with the aerodynamicists and engineers at Multimatic to massage the RT24-P's new bodywork.
Underpinning the new bodywork is the new Riley Mk. 30 chassis, developed by Riley Technologies in relationship with Multimatic.
Mazda will be the first team to make use of this new chassis.
