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.
Mazmart: Mazda 787B @ Downing Atlanta
Downing Atlanta was kind enough to let us come and check out the 787,
before it heads back to Mazda.
Thanks to Mazda Motors and Mazmart also!
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.
