Mazda Motorsports has unveiled the Heritage Collection, a new program to promote the brand’s long motorsport history and to showcase some of the company’s collection of over 80 cars.  In a partnership with Flis Performance, which has produced all of the Mazda MX-5 Cup cars for the American series and has overseen the restoration and race preparation of two of the cars in the collection, the Heritage Collection will debut at two HSR events this autumn, starting with the Daytona International Speedway on 1-5 November and followed by Sebring International Raceway on 1-3 December.  Flis Performance now has the 1989 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning Mazda 767B-002, the 1990 Mazda 787-002, the 1991 Mazda RX-7-001 and the 1992 Mazda RX-792P-001 in its care.  The 767B and RX7 GTO are slated to take part in the HSR race groups while local dealerships will be on hand with other activities planned.
