Despite less than two percent share of the world’s retail automotive market, Mazda drivers are a dominating 50 percent of worldwide racers, with amateur and professional classes under the Mazdaspeed banner.
Robert Davis, senior vice president for quality, research and development – who competes on weekends – made the presentation and did so in humorous, self-deprecating manner, initially noting that Mazda is the second youngest automotive brand behind Scion, Toyota’s youth-oriented nameplate.
