Mazda 787B Startup - Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011
Warming up in the Cathederal Paddock on Sunday morning 3rd July 2011.
Loud? I've stood next to plenty of F1 cars and this was certtainly no
Although it has only a 9000rpm max engine speed, with 12 combustion cycles
PER REVOLUTION (unlike a 4 stroke V12 whihc would only have 6) this car
produces 108,000 combustion cycles per minute. That is 36,000 more than a
current 2.4l F1 car at 18000rpm!
This is the only real running 787B, there is however a second car which
sports the same detailing (even down to Le Mans 1991 driver names) which is
in much better (less faded, and less battle scars) whihc is used as a PR
car. This car was a static display on the Mazda Cars UK stand also at
Goodwood that day.
following Mazda 787B on my bicycle at 24h of Le Mans 2013 (idle + revving)
To mark the 90th anniversary of the 24h of Le Mans, 11 legendary winning
cars were chosen by the public and a jury.
They did 2 slow parade laps before the actual FIA WEC race would start.
One of these was this Mazda 787B. This is the actual winning car from the
1991 24 hours of Le Mans.
Driven to victory by Bertrand Gachot, Johnny Herbert and Volker Weidler.

Mazda 787B Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011
This is the 1991 Le Mans winning Mazda 787B at the start line of the 2011
Goodwood Festival of Speed. You can get a good idea of the sound this thing
produced by watching the the marshal at the right rear when the car
Mark Ticehurst at the wheel.
Redline Review: 2015 Mazda CX-5
No longer just a re-badge Ford, Mazda starts from scratch and builds us a
compact SUV with the soul of a Miata. The 2015 CX-5 has all the traditional
strengths: a roomy cabin, good fuel efficiency, an excellent driving
position, and good cargo space. Only a lack of an upgrade engine and
slightly dated cabin tech keep it from being the best in the segment.
Mazda charge 767B tested by tsuchiya
An OLDTIME MONSTER , the Charge Mazda 767B with 4 rotors engine (13 J ) ,
630 hp @ 9000rpm
with one meter high , weight 800kg ... just listen.
ps: the car is driven on a tight and curvy / bumpy racetrack , not the best
for a real racing car.
