Mazda's prototype racer

Mazda’s new racer features commemorative colors

Mazda became the first Japanese automaker since 1991 to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans. To commemorate the first victory in 25 years, Mazda has established the same colors from that victorious racer on their newest racing car.

These remarkable colors were showcased on Mazda’s prototype racer in early July, at the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen endurance race held at Watkins Glen International in New York.

Mazda is currently competing with a couple of prototypes at the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship being held in North America. Normally, these racing cars are decorated in Mazda’s currently symbolic Soul Red finish.

Of the two machines currently competing, the No. 55 car has been established in green and orange coloring, which were the colors of the victorious racer back in 1991.

Mazda said, “These special colors represent the past, present and future of Mazda Racing.”
