Hi-res gallery of Mazda MX-5's 20th birthday
2 October 2009

Mazda recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of the MX-5 roadster at its Miyoshi Proving Ground in western Japan, and now we can bring you a hi-res gallery of the event.

Over 1600 MX-5 owners, from Japan and overseas, arrived from 6.30am to line up on the banked circuit.

The event was officially launched with a toast from a 20-year-old MX-5 owner, who was born in 1989, the same year as the world’s best-selling roadster was launched.

Members of the original development team met owners, with Mazda development chief Seita Kanai shouting, “The Roadster [MX-5] is forever” when he stood up to address the crowd.

A true automotive legend, long live the MX-5.

absolutely - I hope they keep making it for the next 60 years. I've had two of these cars over the years and they were more fun than a lot of much more powerful machinery.

I'd like to think if Colin Chapman were alive and couldn't drive a lotus he'd have a MK1 MX-5.
