i-MOTO Mazdaspeed 3’s Win Double Podium and Manufacturer Title for Mazda at Mid-Ohio

Sept 26th 2011 – CORAL SPRINGS, FL –Team i-MOTO ends the season strong with a dominate performance at the season finale at Mid Ohio.

First, by giving Mazda its first professional Mazdaspeed 3 Win with our #31 car piloted by the phenom brother duo of Mark and Mathew Pombo. Both Mark and Matt drove amazing, like they have all season. Both battled for the lead throughout their stints.


Second, by giving Mazda its first Double Mazdaspeed 3 Podium with our #32 car piloted by Taylor Hacquard and Pierre Kleinubing. Taylor drove a solid running 3rd and 4th throughout his stint and Pierre drove a damaged car (contact from another car) to the podium. Another amazing drive by PK and Taylor!

Third, the Win and Double-Podium Clinches the Manufacturers Title For Mazda! Team owner/driver Glenn Bocchino said after the win, “Knowing we only needed to finish in 13th position to clinch the title we decided it to go for the win and not to play it conservatively. They cars were perfect, the strategy was perfect and the pits stops were perfect! What more could you ask for!”


And our dream weekend only got better when new came that our friend and team Matt Long who was in a serious motorcycle accident recovered from his coma and was release from the hospital.
We dedicated the Win, the Double Podium and the Manufactures Title to Matt and Mazda (Zoom- Zoom)!
