The company has issued a release indicating that the forthcoming plant in Salamanca, Mexico has had its production capacity raised even though it isn’t scheduled to go online until March 2014 . The original plans called for a 140,000-unit capacity, 90,000 of that allotted for the Mazda2 and Mazda3 , the remaining 50,000 for a small car Mazda would build for Toyota that would be based on the Mazda2. The new plans call for raising that by 90,000 units to a total of 230,000 units within two years, by the end of March 2016, and it looks like it will all go toward Mazda production to satisfy growing demand for Skyactiv vehciles. The Mexican plant’s opening will be the return of Mazda manufacturing to North America, after Mazda6 production was moved back to Japan last year. More good news for the company is that it projects 10 billion yen ($114 million) in net income for the financial year that will end in March. That would be a welcome turnaround from the 100-billion-yen loss in the previous financial year, part of a series of three annual losses in a four-year span.

Indianapolis Results HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (March 13, 2011) – A huge crowd of 60,789 was in attendance for round 10 of the AMA Supercross Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind. The fans not in the stadium were able to watch the action live on SPEED. All season Davi Millsaps and Justin Brayton have been fortunate to transfer into the main events from their heat races skipping the dreaded last chance qualifier, and last night was no exception as they both went directly to the main from the heats. When the gate fell for the main event Brayton and Millsaps began the race inside the top-10. Millsaps charged into fifth position with Brayton just behind during the early laps. Millsaps slid out on the loose track surface briefly going down. After re-mounting, still in the top-10 he came up short over a triple jump jamming his wrist and thumb. With more than half the race to go, Millsaps soldiered through the remaining laps to earn 11th. Meanwhile, by lap eight, Brayton had raced into fifth position.
