What now Speedsource?

I am wondering what happens now with the future for Speedsource?

It would seem logical that Mr Tremblay did not read about the Joest deal in the press, and would have known what was coming down the line, as also I would figure IMSA knew long ago. Likewise, if Mazda wants to change team, I am sure there are still contracts to be honored and paid with Speedsource?

Speedsource has been so long with Mazda, one cannot imagine they will find another partner like them to fund their racing. So does this mean the end of the road for the Team? And what about all the staff, as whilst I do not know how many they employed, but had to be a number, who all have commitments and families relying on them.

It's life I guess, but will be strange to not see them at the circuits.

From what I can tell, Speedsource was a Mazda contractor and that organization has closed its doors. No idea what Tremblay's plans are as even his personal social media accounts have been deleted.

JFC Racing bought one of the Lola B12 / 80's from SpeedSource.
JFC Racing will not be attending this yearís NASA 25 Hour of Thunderhill race in December, as the teamís focus has switched from the current chassis (Wolf GB08) to expand on engine development. Finding the correct chassis platform was needed to expand the development of a twin turbo version of the JFC-V8. This exclusive Hartley designed, twin Hayabusa head V8 was purchased by JFC and will now go into production in 2018. JFC was fortunate to acquire one of the Lola B12/80ís from SpeedSource and will adapt this chassis with the new JFC-V8 power plant in boosted form.
JFC Racing plans to be back for the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill in 2018 with the next Just Fast Cars entry.

I saw a tweet with a picture of that car but couldn't find any news. That could be a cool project to see in person!

I'd love to see SpeedSource get the contract from Mazda to build a TCR 3 series

The idea with the engine is similar to the v8 used in STC-2000 (by Radical Performance), a block with two Hayabusa cylinder's head (with turbos in the JFC project). I want to hear it running.

JFC Racing already used this engine in aspirated form in the last 25 hours of Thunderhill 2016 in Wolf GB08 chassis.
The car was faster than the Ginetta G57 until it broke.
The V8 NA engine in the Wolf sound fantastic!!!

Here Ryan Eversley on board in the Wolf GB08 MJ-V8, in the start climbing from the last to the top positions in the first video and fighting with the Ginettas G57 in the other video.
