Mazda pays homage to rotary engine

Car manufacturer Mazda will be showcasing 11 of its most diverse vehicles from its past and present at the Goodwood Festival to celebrate the 40th anniversary of its rotary engine.

Taking place between June 22nd and 24th, festival-goers will also be able to view the latest models in the Mazda range, including the four-wheel drive CX 7 sports crossover vehicle and the all-new Mazda2, with both set to be available from September.

Being some 100kg lighter than its predecessor, the all new Mazda2 is expected to be one of the most fuel-efficient cars in its class.

Car lovers with a penchant for the retro can feast on motors at another Mazda stand, which is incorporating cars from over four decades, including the 1967 Mazda Cosmo Sport 110S through to a special edition Mazda RX-8.

Rob Lindley, managing director of Mazda Motors UK, said: "At Goodwood we will celebrate Mazda’s heritage and offer a unique perspective into our evolving model range, including yet-to-be-launched production models, exciting design and engineering concepts."
