This thread will be dedicated to my track driving progress of my 2015 Mazda 6. Since there are little to no track driven Mazda 6's (especially the 3rd generation) I hope this thread is interesting for you guys and maybe even inspire more track driven 6's!

Streets of Willow 6/29/19 (Rosamond, CA)

My Build:
-CorkSport Front Strut Tower Bar
-CorkSport Axleback Exhaust
-CorkSport Rear Sway Bar
-Powerstop Brake Pads
-Centric Rotors

Goal Time: 1:45

Actual Times:

Session 1: 1:55.737
Session 2: 1:57.767 (+0:02.03)
Session 3: 1:49.909 (-0:07.858)
Session 4: 1:48.158 (-0:01.751)
Session 5: 1:47.453 (-0:00.705)
Session 6: 1:46.241 (-0.01.212)
Session 7: 1:47.642 (+0.01.401)
Session 8: 1:46.070 (-0:01.572)

Overview:

Sessions 1-2: served as laps to help me get to know the track
Session 3-5: started to get comfortable and started pushing the car
Session 6-8: 90% comfortable with the track and started putting down consistent times

When I return to Streets of Willow, my new goal is to get sub 1:40. How will I achieve this?

-Coilovers
-Better braking and race lines
-Better conditions (cooler temperatures)

Been a long time since an update on this thread, I have signed up for another track event hosted by SpeedVentures. The track I'm going on this time is Buttonwillow on 12/21! The main focus of track days are to have fun, improve driving skills and break some personal best times!

Goal Time: 2:15-2:20

This is kind of a huge goal, but I think I can do it as I plan on installing coilovers before this next track day as opposed to my stock suspension which I used at Streets of Willow.
