Location, Location, Location!

Location, Location, Location! It has been announced that Moses Smith has moved the manufacturing of the Formula Mazda to Motorsport Ranch in Cresson, TX. Motorsport Ranch is a Country Club for motoring enthusiasts, which is centered around two purpose built road racing courses.

"Being located at a race track was my three year goal for the Formula Mazda when I took over the manufacturing rights in September of 2009. Although a bit early, moving to the Ranch completes this goal." said Smith.

The location and access to track will help to propel the FM class into the future and allow for an easily accessible race car test drive environment. The ability for potential FM owners to test drive and enjoy the Formula Mazda will bring more drivers into the class and make the racing even more fun than it already is.

Moses has also taken the reigns of the well-established Texas Autosports and the Formula Car Challenge presented by Goodyear Southwest Series. Tim and Sandy Magrath spent fourteen years living and breathing Formula Mazda, and it shows. Their hard work and dedication are evident in the success of the arrive and drive program, their race team, the FCC Southwest Series, and Formula Mazda in general. It is with bittersweet feelings that Moses Smith Racing jointly announced that Tim and Sandy have decided to "change gears" and move on to a different adventure in their lives.

Moses Smith Racing LLC will remain the manufacturer of the Formula Mazda and Formula Mazda parts, and will now be located in Cresson, TX. The existing shop in Tempe, AZ has already been closed. Texas Autosports, under new ownership, will remain as it has been, the coordinator of the Southwest Formula Car Challenge Series, Southwest Formula Mazda and Pro Mazda parts dealer, prep shop, and race team.
