Mazda Motorsport on show at AIMS

Motorsport enthusiasts will be given the chance to get up close to Mazda Motorsport’s RX-8 SP at the Australian International Motor Show which opens in Melbourne on July 1.

The RX-8 SP has been a key player in Mazda Australia’s factory racing team since it first took to the tarmac to compete in Targa Tasmania in 2009.

Since its debut, the RX-8 SP has earned a long list of notable achievements, including a top ten finish in its first ever outing and an impressive second outright at Targa Wrest Point in 2011.

The 2011 Australian International Motor Show will provide show-goers with the rare opportunity to witness first-hand the level of work that has gone into making the RX-8 SP the racing machine it is.

Show goers will be given the opportunity to not only view the RX-8 SP, but will be invited to sit in the driver’s seat of Mazda Motorsport’s prized racing machine.

Mazda staff will be on hand to capture the exciting moment, supplying a memento photograph of the experience.

Mazda Motorsport boss Allan Horsley is excited about the opportunity to showcase the RX-8 SP. “The RX-8 SP has played an important role in the success of the Mazda Motorsport team.

This very car is in the midst of preparations for its next rally outing, but we have taken some time out of development to make this car available for what is sure to be one of Mazda’s most exciting Motor Show displays”

The Australian International Motor Show runs from July 1 – 10 and the Mazda stand will be packed full of interactive activities and exciting vehicles to keep the crowds entertained.
