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 backfires! Mark Ticehurst at the wheel.

Great to see this car running again. I was at Le Mans in 1991, I was also there this year but missed it's return run.
