Yes, with the right tires and a bit of luck, a Mazda 6 can win HS. https://solo.stlscca.org/championship-standings/
I had not competed for years and do not claim to be the best driver. I was a bit surprised that the car was competitive to begin with. I did get beat down during the two regional events, otherwise I was at or near the top. There is potential in the car, but I am hesitant to say it could win at the national level.

Sorry, but thats not really that impressive, since youre not fighting against any FiST's with winning seasoned drivers like i have to in my 3. Although i did come within 2.93 points of upsetting the 2020 1st Place winner in his current 3rd position. But thats why im going to FSP next season, cause all the mods i want to do to the car area allowed in that class, but not HS. I came in 4th, thought id get a trophy, but since there were only 4 of us who qualified for 5 events, only 2 do now.

Offhand, i hate STL's data sheets vs Cincinnati. However, STL does 7/9 events, which worked in your favor cause too many others missed more than 2 events.

Dont take this as me being harsh, im just being factual. Its impressive to do that in that car or mine, im just saying i had a much harder field to fight against IMO.

I would agree to say that I happened to be in the right place at the right time. I understand the level of competition that is out there. The last time I autocrossed was 15 yrs. ago with a Honda Del Slow. Most of the time I was fighting not to be in last place, with my best result in any race being second. There was a national champion in a Civic SI back then that I could only try to be a few seconds behind.
