Mazda3 MPS Driven by G RollinsonMazda has had a long association with motorsport both in New Zealand and globally. This association has also proved very successful with Mazda famously being the only Japan-based manufacturer to have triumphed at Le Mans.

Closer to home, the RX-7 and RX-8 are regulars at racetracks around the country with a more recent addition being the Mazda3 MPS. Once again this has proved to be a successful racing entry with the MPS taking out the New Zealand Production Racing Series Championship at the first attempt in 2008/09.
