Mazda Fan Festa 2015 was held on Sunday, December 6th, 2015 at the Okayama International Circuit in Mimasaka, Japan. This event had a variety of different Mazda models, and differently a lot of history with them all.
Look at the variety of different Mazda chassis parked next to each other. It doesn’t matter if you have a piston engine or a rotary engine or not even in production anymore. Just enjoying each others cars.
A lot of well maintained cars despite the years.
The Mazda LM55 Vision.
This a modern day tribute to the Mazda 787/787B that took the 24 Hours of Le Mans win in 1991 and become a legend in the companies history.
The very rare 1st generation Mazda Cosmo.
A body style that has a sporty classy feel to it that it even transcends the years.
The Mazda 787B, the grandfather to the Mazda LM55, and the winner of the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans. Still to this day it is the only victory by a Japanese manufacturer and non-piston engine.
Yohei’s white FD3S next to Hamasaki’s yellow FD3S.
Those SSR Professor MS1 look awesome on there.
A chassis that was leaps beyond its time, the Mazda Eunos Cosmo. Back in the early half of the 1990s, this car had a factory color touch screen that controlled the radio/CD player, GPS navigation, climate control, mobile phone, and TV. Not to mention all the interesting other components from the engine bay to the drive train.
There was also plenty of circuit racing going on for enthusiasts, professionals, and spectators.
Plenty of Mazda 2 (Demio) attending the event with some freshness.
Confused Miata with the Porsche style front end; not too bad.
Besides the many races that were held throughout the day, there was also a parade run to end the day with all the enthusiasts around the Okayama International Circuit.
Spread the Mazda love.
