Mazda to feature at Goodwood speed festival

Mazda will be the central feature marque at the 2015 Goodwood festival of speed being held in the United Kingdom in June.

It will take centre stage at the world’s most prestigious motoring festival, celebrating its challenger spirit with the racing legends of its sporting past and the cars of its current range.

From being the only Japanese manufacturer to win the Le Mans 24 Hour Race, to its development of the rotary engine, and its reinvention of the affordable sports car with the MX-5 – Mazda says it has never stopped challenging in its quest to produce great cars.

With the introduction of the first-ever Mazda CX-3 small SUV and the debut of the all-new Mk IV MX-5, Mazda’s range will take a starring role at the Goodwood festival of speed and the Moving motor show. While in line with the ‘Flat-out and Fearless: Racing on the Edge’ theme of this year’s festival of ppeed, enthusiasts will be treated to the unique sound of Mazda’s 1991 Le Mans winning 787B Group C car and many other classics from Mazda’s competition past.

“We are delighted to be celebrating Mazda’s motor sport achievements and pioneering road-car technologies with the Central Feature, and to help it showcase its brand-new cars to an international community of car enthusiasts and the world’s automotive media – an audience that only Goodwood can attract,” says Lord March.

“Mazda has a long heritage in racing, and through motorsport has demonstrated its engineering spirit through the rotary engine, its Le Mans win and the LMP2 SKYACTIV diesel prototype currently racing in the United States,” says Mazda New Zealand managing director Andrew Clearwater.

“Mazda also has more cars, and cars with Mazda engines, racing each weekend in the United States than any other manufacturer, and it is all these landmarks and achievements that we will be celebrating at Goodwood this year.”

With the Moving motor show on the 25th June, the Goodwood festival of speed takes place from the 26-28th June, during which the central feature, created by sculptor Gerry Judah and Mazda, will provide a backdrop set against Goodwood House.
