Mazda MX-5 aims to set new Guinness World Record


Mazda is hoping to set a new world record for the largest parade of Mazda cars using the Mazda MX-5 Miata sports car. The current record of 459 Mazda MX-5’s was set in Essen, Germany in 2010.

A fun day with the Mazda Mx-5

IMAX-5 2013 is aiming for as many as 800 Mazda MX-5 vehicles at the RDW Test Centrum in Lelystad to join the procession. There will be a variety of activities offered at the event such as test driving Mazda’s new SKYACTIV models and experience their cutting-edge iActivesense safety technology.

Participants will be given the opportunity to test their skills on different race simulators, take in a special display of some of the finest MX-5’s on hand and receive a free inspection of their own roadsters.

Further activities include track demonstrations of the Ribank Mazda MaX5 Cup racers as well as Van Herck Racing’s three-rotor-engined Mazda3 20B. The day will end with a feature film shown at Europe’s largest drive-in cinema.

24 years of continued excellence

The Mazda MX-5 made its first debut in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show, with the second generation model launching in 1998. The current model has been in production since 2005, and continues to be the best-selling two seat convertible sports car in history. Over 900 000 MX-5s have been built and sold around the world.
