There are television shows dedicated to breaking world records; some of which are as obscure as getting plungers to stick the backs of actual people, as depicted in this German video. Now, Mazda is attempting to break one if its own for the “largest parade of Mazda cars”.
On June 15, 2013 Mazda will attempt to lineup around 800 of its vehicles to break its own world record that it set back in 2010. That record was set at 459 in Essen, Germany, and it will attempt to be broken in Lelystad, the Netherlands.
Mazda has elected to use one of its vehicles that is a world record-holder in its own right. The Mazda Miata was named the most popular sports car in world in 2000 when the Japanese automaker officially sold 531,890 Miatas.
Miata-owners can take part in the event by registering online, at http://mcm.mijnmazda.nl/IMAX-5/welkom/.ashx. Registration comes with a $38 (30 Euro) entry fee, which includes lunch and drinks for two.
The world record attempt is no doubt a tool Mazda is using at is prepares for the arrival of its fourth-generation MX-5 Miata at dealers across the globe. Stop by Bakersfield Mazda in Bakersfield, CA for more information on the 2014 Miata.
