Mazda at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016
Mazda MX-5 RF, the latest adaptation of the best selling two-seater sports car ever, made its European premiere in the UK at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June. First unveiled to the public at the New York International Auto Show in March, the retractable fastback version of Mazda’s legendary roadster was the highlight of the Mazda Goodwood stand, where Mazda pays tribute to the MX-5’s past, present and future. The MX-5 RF in “Machine Grey” featured alongside the one-millionth production MX-5, which rolled off the assembly line in Japan on 22 April, as well as the MX-5 Spyder and MX-5 Speedster concept cars.
For the second year running Mazda brought live music to the world’s most prestigious motoring festival. Celebrating the delight of roof down motoring, ‘Raise the Roof’ took place within a unique backstage inspired open-air space in the Laundry Green area of the Goodwood Estate.
