Mazda Sets Course for One-Millionth Miata Celebration Tour

Mazda Sets Course for One-Millionth Miata Celebration Tour

Get ready for the roadster tour to end all roadster tours. Mazda’s worldwide celebration of its one-millionth production Miata MX-5 Miata keeps on rolling. Now the historical roadster will be making the rounds here in the U.S.

The first leg of the Millionth Miata Celebration Tour takes place August 18-21. It starts as a part of the Monterey Motorsports Reunion at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California. The celebrated roadster will then launch into the 18 stop tour. It will then make its grand finale where it started back at Monterey on October 1-2.

The stops were chosen based on MX-5 sales history and interest expressed by owners’ clubs. They include New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Chicago, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Phoenix, and Los Angeles.  

The one-millionth Miata follows the standards of Japanese-specifications. That includes the steering wheel on the right-hand side. The fourth-generation model’s design includes the iconic soft-top. It carries a 1.5-liter SKYACTIV-G engine.

Since the tour offers fans the opportunity to celebrate the history of the Miata, it makes sense that a car from the brand’s Heritage Collection would come along. Therefore, Mazda decided to send the 15th Miata ever built. Yep. The Classic Red 1990 model will make the rounds as well. The classic 27-year old first showed at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show.

The details of the tour include special privileges for early participants. The first 240 celebrators at each stop of the tour will get to sign the one-millionth red babe. At each stop, about 400 participants will get a tour t-shirt as well.
