#RacingFriday: Miata RB26 Wipeout

Mazda Miata RB26 Wipe Out at Sacramento Raceway

Okay, so it wasn’t quite a wipeout but that’s only due to the driving skills of the man behind the wheel. Good thing too because at 140 mph you can be sure that hitting the wall would have been a really bad thing. If you want to hear the driver’s perspective on the whole thing check out the full video here.

The Illusive RX9

The Mazda RX9 Concept Teaser  #Mazda #RX9 #Concept #Teaser

 

The Mazda RX9 is an illusive beast, even in its present form as a pure concept. If you’ve been anxiously awaiting news of its release and production I’m sorry to say I don’t have anything new to offer. I did, however, run across the following video which purports to show it in action. Still, I can’t be too sure.

If anyone has any definitive news about the eventual release and specs we can hope to see from the Mazda RX9 I’d appreciate it because all I’ve been able to come up with so far are a lot of rumors and conjecture. It almost seems that once the talk about the new MX5 began in February all mention of the RX9 just stopped. Let’s hope that doesn’t mean they’re shelving it but, then again, you never know.

How Would You Fix Cosmetic Damage to Your MX-5?

Mazda Miata MX5 Side Stripes to Hide Cosmetic Damage from Reddit

The above photo was snagged from Reddit where the owner installed the side stripes to cover some superficial damage which got me thinking: what would you do if you scratched your MX-5 (not necessarily the new 2016 but any gen)? If you’ve got the time it’d be cool to see what you’d do to cover up a slight scratch. Oh, and please answer even if you don’t have a Mazda, aMiata or even if you don’t have a car at all.

2016 Mazda MX-5 GT – Road Test

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata #Mazda #MX5 #Miata www.rvinyl.com/Mazda-Accessories.html

Yesterday we featured a walk-around of the all-new 2016 Mazda Miata MX-5 and I have to admit I was pretty stunned by the response. Either the MX-5 has a much more vocal and devoted following than the FR-S/BRZ or Mazda has tapped into something much bigger than anyone expected.

Today’s video features an exclusive and informal road test of the 2016 Mazda MX-5 GT. It’s a shortened version of the original which can be found here and only shows the red MX-5. The longer video available at the link also features a white MX-5 with additional shots of the interior.

The All-New 2016 Miata MX-5

The 2010s (is that even a thing yet?) have not been kind to the sports coupe. Long gone are the days when it was easy to spot them but the outlook os rather bleak these days for low-power, high-style sports coupes. Gone are the Honda S2000, Toyota MR2 Spyder, Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky and sales of comparably configured vehicles like the Scion FR-S, Nissan 370Z, Porsche Boxster, Audi A5, Audi TT and BMW Z have completely bottomed out. In fact, GM just shelved an FR-S competitor last week. So what is Mazda thinking?

According to a great article in Automotive News (which I suggest you check out), it’s all part of Mazda’s plan to rebuild brand value. We’ll see how that works out but while they’re building their value we can enjoy the all-new 2016 MX-5. Check out the video below and, as always, share your thoughts!

Here’s a little Memorial Day treat: a 1/4 mile drag race featuring the new 2015 BMW M3 powered by BMW’s 3.0 liter twin turbo inline 6 cylinder which makes 425 horsepower. The M3 has a Dinan tune and a 7 speed dual clutch transmission so you know it’s got to feel as great to drive as it looks.
