By CARSIFU | 14 June 2018

SERDANG: MazdaSports Academy's first “Advance Driving” ownership experience programme was a big hit with Mazda car owners.

Initially set to take place only on June 9, 2018 (Saturday), the programme was extended for another day to June 10, 2018 (Sunday) due to overwhelming response.

Each day session was limited to 20 participants who used their own Mazda cars, and the event was opened to Mazda2, Mazda3 and CX-3 owners.

40 of the spirited Mazda car owners came mostly from the Klang Valley, but a number travelled from Melaka, Johor, and even Terengganu to experience Jinba Ittai, being one, with their Mazda and to discover their own driving potential.

The owners enjoyed a Time Trial Challenge to test their agility after a day on the dynamic driving practical course.

They were presented with a certificate of accomplishment upon successful completion.

Bermaz’s MazdaSports Division, formed in 2016, currently encompasses vehicle development, parts and accessories, and experience programmes.

Since its establishment, the MazdaSports Division has developed two models under its vehicle development project; the Mazda3 and Mazda2 with the nameplate MS and M+, respectively, for domestic market consumption.

The MazdaSports Division will be designing more “Advance Driving” programmes which will be either model specific or by categories based on vehicle drivetrain, powertrain and dimensions.

Programmes tailored specifically for Mazda’s SUV range and iconic roadster, the MX-5, are currently underway.
