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.

TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as
the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been
flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch
the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter
of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours
- almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans
winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö
Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a
special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II
documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with
the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have
retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a
dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which
the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13
seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running
of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi
Sport and breath-taking pictures.
