LOS ANGELES – Mazda North American Operations is once again taking its Zoom-Zoom Live Tour across the country. Residents of the Los Angeles-area will be able to experience first-hand Mazda’s mantra, “Always the soul of a sports car,” at the 2nd Annual Zoom-Zoom Live being held at the California Speedway in Fontana, CA, on Saturday, October 28 from 8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, October 29 from 8:15 a.m. to 3 p.m.
With nearly 50,000 car lovers expected to take to the tracks in Mazda vehicles in one of 10 different cities, the Zoom-Zoom Live Tour is one of the most exciting driving events in the world giving participants the opportunity to boost adrenaline levels.

The 10 city tour covers more than 1 million square footage of track, uses more than 3,000 orange cones, goes through 3,000 lbs of chalk and devours 1,100 tires.
Zoom-Zoom Live features four dynamic drive courses where the public can put their driving skills to the test in Mazda vehicles! Experience the all-new CX-7 crossover SUV on the “Target Hunt” Course.

And, finally, drivers can try for their best time on the “Matched Time Gymkhana Course.” Prizes for best times and performance will be awarded throughout the day! Lots of food and fun to be had while feeling the thrill of motion!
Mazda’s all-new CX-7 features a 2.3L Direct Injection Spark Ignition (DISI) Turbocharged engine for an exhilarating 244 horsepower that will make your heart race – this is the SUV that you never saw coming. The MAZDASPEED6‘s turbocharged 274 horsepower engine and 6-speed transmission will give drivers the thrill of a lifetime. As you slide behind the wheel of the RX-8 rotary engine sports car and grip the wheel of the MX-5, you will instantly know why these sports cars continue to win the highest awards and accolades from industry experts at Road & Track, Car & Driver, Motor Trend and MotorWeek.
