Mazda 767B Crashed At Goodwood

Warning, the content of this article might be disturbing to petrolheads and car lovers.

This was supposed to be Mazda’s year at Goodwod. With a 40-metre monument stretching to the sky, commemorating its heritage, the Japanese car manufacturer had a chance to shine through the sea of rare automobiles with its rotary-powered race cars.

Unfortunately, Mazda did provoke a stir with its cars, but for the wrong reason. There’s no easy way of saying it: One of the star-cars, a 767B group C prototype, has been involved in a crash on Friday. Don’t worry, Senji Hoshino – the driver – escaped unharmed, even though the aftermath looks like a total wreck.

The automobile involved was chassis 202, an upgraded 1989 B Spec 767, which alongside another 767B finished the 1989 Le Mans 24-hour race in 7th and 9th place.

This car survived one of the most grueling races just to end up in a bale of hay, 26 years later. Well, at least it was doing its thing, as the crash occurred during a timed lap on the hill-climb.

The automobile sustained heavy damage, but nothing an intricate team of engineers and a car manufacturer can’t repair. We do hope everything turns out fine for this rare example of awesomeness.

We’ve prepped a video with the Mazda when it was still kicking and screaming, just to hear its 4-rotor Wankel roar.
