For the second year in a row, Mazda Canada set up shop at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park during the American Le Mans Series weekend, hosting Mazda owners/enthusiasts at Turn 8 to watch all the action. The weekend was action-packed and every race series on display except for one featured at least one Mazda-powered vehicle, so there were plenty of competitors to cheer for. As was the case last year, the Mazda Corral parade lap time came early Sunday morning: 7 a.m. to be exact. The early bird start did little to dampen enthusiasm as 26 owners showed up with their Mazda to lap the newly renovated track. Throughout the day, more owners showed up to enjoy the festivities and chat with other likeminded Mazda enthusiasts. The action and suspense of the race weekend drew out to the last second, as fan-favourite Playboy MX-5 Cup driver Elliot Skeer made a race-winning pass on the last lap, right in front of the Mazda Corral that was cheering him on.
