Vintage Racing at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is a celebrated yearly tradition on the automotive calendar that is a must-see for any car nut or motorsports enthusiast that can get to California in August. With the latest chapter of that tradition ready to unfold this weekend, Piloti has unveiled a new model to celebrate its involvement in the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion.
“I remember the GTP cars of the 1980s,” said Dempsey. ‘It will be fantastic to drive the most powerful Mazda IMSA car built in that era and compare it to my current RX-8 race car.”
Dempsey’s current team, which competes in the Grand-Am Rolex Sport Car Series GT class, fields Mazda RX-8 sports cars. He drives when his filming schedule allows it and other drivers take his place when he can’t. The Mazda RX-792P will be joined by 23 other GTP cars in the FIA Mfg. Championship & IMSA GTP race group at the event.
