Le Mans - Mazda 787B - 1991

Every success at Le Mans is in itself a page of history, but that of the Mazda 787B in 1991 has at least two reasons to be considered a milestone: it is the first by a Japanese manufacturer on the circuit at la Sarthe and it marks the biggest breakthrough for the Wankel rotary engine.

Almost unexpected Mazda's success came after years of attempts thanks to refined technology and a little help from the regulations. The same regulations that, from 1992, would outlaw the Wankel engine.
