Mazda Motor Corporation er stiftet i 1920 af Juriro Matsuda. Selskabet har hovedkontor i Fuchu, Hiroshima, Japan, og man producerer fortsat hovedparten af alle biler på fabrikken i Hiroshima. Mazda producerer personbiler, letter lastbiler og motorer. Selskabet blev i 1920 stiftet som Toyo Cork Kogyo Co. Ltd, men sidst i 1920 blev selskabet reddet fra fallit af en række virksomhedsledere i Hiroshima. I 1931 begyndte man at fremstille en autorickshaw ved navn Mazda-Go. Første bil med navnet Mazda blev introduceret i 1960, men det var først i 1984 Mazda officielt købte og tog navnet Mazda. Oliekrisen i 1970’erne betød stor nedgang i salget af Mazdas biler med wankelmotor, og endnu engang blev Mazda reddet fra fallit af banker og investorer. I 1979 indledte Mazda et samarbejde med Ford, i 1996 udvidede Ford sin aktiepost i Mazda til 33,3 procent, men under den økonomiske krise i 2008 solgte Ford det mest af sin aktiepost, så den faldt til 2,1 procent.
The first Miatas at Mazda Raceway - called "Miatas at MRLS" - was a two-day event that ran on March 21-22nd, 2009 as a 20th birthday party for the Miata. It spawned followup events in 2010, 2012 and 2013, pulling Miatas from all over North America and beyond. In 2014, we celebrated 25 years of the Miata with a massive gathering that included the first public showing of the 4th generation car.
The inaugural Global MX-5 Cup Invitational featured two races from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, with American Nathanial Sparks earning the overall victory. Take a look back at this historic event that brought the best Global MX-5 Cup racers from around the world together for a truly unique racing event.
After a month off, the Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires jumped back into the season and saw five cars covered by 0.15 seconds, the closest “pack-finish” in MX-5 Cup history. Sparks only led once, but did so when it mattered – the finish line. It was the perfect anniversary as Sparks had joined the Sick Sideways team four years ago at this race. He has scored multiple podium finishes, and thanks to consistency, entered the weekend as the MX-5 Cup points chase.

The No. 70 Mazda Prototype finished fifth in today’s Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The second Mazda entry, the No. 55 car, led the race and ran among the leaders for five-and-a-half hours until engine issues ended a bid for victory. Both cars carried special liveries to honor the 25th anniversary of Mazda’s victory at the the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans.
