Mazda MX-5 sets new world record

Mazda was able to set a new entry in the Guinness Book of World Records during the big MAX-5 2013 event in Lelystad, Netherlands. A total of 683 Mazda MX-5s joined the procession on the roads around the RDW Test Centre at Lelystad, forming the longest parade of
driving Mazdas ever. 1,450 participants contributed to the successful record attempt, shattering the existing record for the 'largest parade of Mazda cars' - 459 Mazda MX-5s - set in Essen, Germany in 2010.

The MX-5 parade through the fascinating polder landscape was led by a spectacular version of the MX-5, a third-generation (NC) racing model with the Dutch TV presenter Allard Kalff behind the wheel and President and CEO of Mazda Motor Europe Jeff Guyton beside him. Later on, after the successful record attempt, Guyton also received the official certificate which was presented by Guinness World Records adjudicator Pravin Patel.
