Mazda Motorsports is happy to announce a new member to the team who will be supporting the entire Motorsports program, with a focus on grassroots racing. Josh Smith will help build Mazda Motorsports’ competition parts selection, be available to competitors on the phone for parts and technical consult, and support Mazda racers at many race events.
“I will be providing technical assistance to club racers, focused around SCCA Majors and NASA Nationals events,” explains Smith. “I’ll be assisting the competition parts team, and basically be a liaison between racers and the manufacturer as well as between the manufacturer and sanctioning bodies.”
One of Josh Smith’s responsibilities will be to support Mazda competitors in the Southeast. Smith, formerly of Spec Miata prep shop Panic Motorsports, will be traveling to the SCCA Southeast Majors events, many Hoosier Super Tour events, and others. While the on-hand work will be focused in the Southeast, what is learned will translate to the entire motorsport program.
