Video: On Board The Mazda6 Diesel Race Car

We’ve talked at length about how awesome the all-new Mazda6 diesel race car is going to be, and finally the day has arrived when we get to see this ride in action. Video after the jump.

For those who don’t know, the Mazda6 diesel race car uses the same SkyActiv-D 2.2 liter diesel engine that will go into the production car you and I can buy. Of course, the racing version has been tuned and tweaked to provide extreme levels of performance. Still, as one of the few automakers willing to take the chance to campaign a diesel race car, and a family sedan at that, we think Mazda deserves big credit.

The diesels are coming…and they’re coming faster than you may have realized.
