You missed the Mazda rxs......! Some in background, but none mentioned. Definitely an oversight!

The headline says .... The Miata you'd wished you'd built. Well NO, actually. It'd have a Mazda rotary in it for me. Nothing against Hondas, I drive one, but for me, it'd be a whole heap better with a rotary. And I don't buy the reliability thing: all my Rxs have been ultra reliable and cheaper to maintain than our piston cars in the garage.

Yes, ok, but where there any Mazda rxs there?

Such an eclectic mix of cars in his garage, but you missed a classic, as Jay has a Mazda 110s, as in Mazdas first production rotary.

Cheaper, don't know about, require less maintenance I wouldn't agree with. Witness Mazdas huge successes in imsa and the legendary reliability of the mazdaspeed entry's at le mans, and the Bathurst conquering production rx7s.

Time for mazda to get serious, dust off the 787b add a couple of electric motors and revisit the Sarthe. Seriously, Mazda needs to get back on track with a rotary, and the current regs hark back to those glory days back in 91..... When you had the jags running v12, mercs the turbo v8s, not to mention the aston martins and Porsches, along with the mazda rotary, and Toyota and nissans best efforts. Yes, mazda, get with it, defend your reputation as Japan's only victor at Le Mans. Oh, and hurry up with the next rotary.... Please!

Looking forward to the coverage, Especially the rotarys... So don't forget to highlight the best Mazdas. Shame mazda isn't doing its heritage proud ......that sky activ diesal just dosnt do it. Kudos to mazda for getting behind mad mikes effort though, he's the BEST brand ambassador they could ask for, so that's a positive for team Mazda. Time to get serious mazda, get the next rx too market, and the Mazdaspeed team back on track with a pukka racer that has its motor spinning, not going boing boing!

Not sure on the looks, will wait to seeing it "live". Would have liked to have seen it more curvy, more fd rx. Definitely should have a rotary option though, that's a given, and long overdue. Hope that with mad mike running a mx5 Mazda powered rota, Mazda will see this as an ideal a opportunity!
7 months, 3 weeks ago on The All-New Mazda MX-5 Breaks Cover
Goodwood is unique, and this year you could watch it streamed over the web, so that was an added bonus. We where there on the Sunday, and mikes runs where epic. The Rx7 was inch perfect as it screamed up the hill, and the commentators where in awe as it slid and slided up the hill, leaving "bananas" of shreaded Nittos on Lord Marchs drive! Mazda never had it so good..... Such a hard core audience to demonstrate the legendary rotary in front of; think Mazda got loads of positive coverage, and there's only 1 question, bring another rotary on mazda!
Just saying, mikes new project is a mx5, no better time to release a rx powered mx5. Mike, you where the star amongst stars, and you did Red Bull proud. Only thing I'd disagree with is that mazda has a pretty rich racing heritage, so for me, think seeing a mazda entry was no surprise, and you where following in some pretty good rotary tire tracks. Bf Goodrich Lola, 787b all having run up the hill in previous events. Huge respect to Mike, Red Bull and Mazda; you couldn't have a better ambassador, keep it rota!

@nugundam93 @py4age ... true, bit its ruined for us purists as it dosn`t have the rotary in it!
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Catching Up With Linhbergh
this is going to be the business.mad mikes a fantastic ambassador for mazda, and keeping it rotary is what its all about. mazda should have done this years ago, adding a rotary just makes so much sense! Hope Mazda appreciate just how good Mad Mike is at maintaining the rich rotary heritage, big congrats to redbull too for supporting mike. now what cars going to rrun up the hill at #2015fos? id vote for the rx7 and the mx5, hey, any mazda rx with mad mike squirting the loud pedal and smoking the hill will be a sight to see. Essential Memo to Lord March..... Invites to mad mike for 2015 and any of his redbull rotas ....

Forget the v8s, bring on the rotarys. I am waiting for mad mikes Malta build, and the promised mad mike blog from his goodwood blast, where he stuck it to the wall, in the best way possible! He was the absolute star amongst stars! So bring on the rotary goodness

9 months, 2 weeks ago on Think You’ve Seen It All? Welcome To Gatebil Rudskogen 2014
Mad mike was the standout star without any doubt. The rx7 was simply superb, but you didn't mention the sensational Mazda RX500 in the Cartier concours, or the group b rally rx 7 that ran up the hill. (Still time though) But really, there was just one standout, and that was mad mike. AND, HE WAS QUICK GOING DOWN THE HILL DOING DOUGHNUTS at very opportunity. That rota mota was stunning! And mad mike did mazda proud.... Hope the factory in Japan takes note!
9 months, 2 weeks ago on The Noises, The Sounds: The Festival
Kudos to goodwood for bringing this to fos- rx500: fantastic to see it, and it's tiny 10a rotary, what a car! Shame Mazdas currant range is so lame, time for another furai, but make it real mazda, at least 20b rotary.... Can see mad mike storming up the hill in it!
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Festival In A Blur: Goodwood Speeds Past
It's a simple one this .... Mad Mikes mighty Mazda Madbull rx7.... And having seen this car "stick it to the wall" on the goodwood fos, there's one word, awesome, and that was in competition with some pretty exclusive machinery. The rota mota rules!
9 months, 3 weeks ago on The Cars of June
Stole it! Was there on the Sunday and mad mike was the standout star amongst the glitterati of the Motorsport fraternity. That rx7 was huge, and a wake up for mazda to bring back another rotary. Keep the faith, go rota, go mad mike! Please goodwood, bring back mike for 2015 festival of speed .... And maybe even the revival, as the rx7 is a classic from 1996!
9 months, 3 weeks ago on MADBUL Destroys The Goodwood Hill
Great refresh of an iconic car! AND here's hoping that Mazda, will thru mad mikes efforts, see there's only one way back, and that's with another flagship mazda rx. Mazda are to be applauded for supporting mikes efforts, and he must be the only driver enjoying mazda factory support in any pro level Motorsport. Is there any mazda japanese input, or is the mazda involvement purely from mazda nz? I am hoping there be some Hiroshima based interest in this project. Can't wait to see mike at goodwood this coming Sunday. Go Mad mike! Ps mikes in some illustrious mazda company at goodwood ..... The class winning bf Goodrich Lola's, the legend 787b and the furai are all Rotas that have been up the hill, so he's in great rx company!

The mazda rx7 is sweet. Mazda had to bring back another Rx as toyotas stolen a march with their new concept. So common Mazda, there's the furai as a start reference.....
10 months, 1 week ago on The Best Cars & Coffee Ever?
What! You where in Hiroshima, and you didn't visit TOYO KOYGO ....?! The Mazda factory is pretty much what hiroshimas about.... Home to the rotary; you definetly missed a trick! Stop the bullet train, turn it around and head back to Hiroshima. Agree it's an awesome city, and the people very welcoming.
10 months, 2 weeks ago on 24 Hours In Hiroshima
Mad mikes mx5 is what mazda should have done themselves, at the very least as an option. It should be awesome .... Go mad mike, go rota mota! And mazda, DO bring back another rotary, AND DO GET SERIOUS about Motorsport. Nissan and Toymota are back to Le Mans, MUST return as well, but with a rotary. Mazda is rotary, go mad mike!

It's what mazda always missed a trick with; they should have done this, at the very least as an option, years ago. That said, what's stopping them now? The 16x has been kicking round long enough, and would surely be ok for hauling the mx5 chassis around. Love Rotas, and mad mikes right at the front in flying the rota flag. Shame mazda hasn't got there priorities sorted; bring us back a rx, and get back to Le Mans with a rx. Go mad mike!
