Generally speaking, it’s very rare to find a car manufacturer that devotes some serious time to sharing the intimate details of its history with us. And early Mazda racing history in Japan is not an area that’s well known, so we’ve tried to do our best to bring it to you in our earlier articles (here and here).
Hence it’s really so nice to see that Mazda has a nice motorsport retrospective going on in its website at the moment. Mazda are slowly adding racing photos from its motorsport archives with a brief article on the story behind each. There are regular updates, but it’s obviously a long term project (and a labour of love) for someone inside Mazda.
From us here at Grand JDM, we’d like to say good for you, sir! We only wish all the other manufacturers would do the same.
