All stickered up and looking ready for action, this was the car that made our Gran Turismo dreams come true.
Welcome to Tsukuba Raceway in Japan, and the 2019 running of the Mazda Media 4 Hour Endurance Race!
And welcome to the car we'll be running.
Yes, you spotted right, that's a Roadshow decal on the fender, and a CNET logo on the hood!
This is our car that ran the four-hour endurance race at Tsukuba.
And that right there is my name on the door. That's a good feeling.
While the cars are minimally modified, the interiors are properly stripped. And, yes, a cage is installed.
Racing seat, too, but only one. No passengers for this event.
Other than the cage and some brake pads, this is a mostly stock Roadster.
The four-hour race is an endurance run, with less than 16 gallons of fuel allowed.
We ran well into the night on a terribly hot day and managed an eighth-place finish!
