SevenStock X Wrap-Up
Submitted by Dan Mazzella on Saturday, September 29, 2007 - 11:45Old School

Rotary Nirvana. RX-7 Heaven. The Best Yet. SevenStock X was the place to be last weekend if you even remotely consider yourself a Rotorhead. The event started 10 years ago as a little BBQ, the first large get together of the SoCal RX-7 club. Since 1997, many things have changed. The club exploded in membership, changed their name to SoCal RX Club, and they turned the yearly little BBQ to the largest Rotary Event in the WORLD! Not only was this a special anniversary of the event, but it is also a special anniversary of the Rotary Engine at Mazda. In 1967, the rotary powered Mazda Cosmo 110s was introduced to the world. 40 years later, the rotary revolution is going strong, and SevenStock marked the dual anniversary in a spectacular way, with the theme centered on rotary heritage.

Mazda Develops World's First Biofabric Made With 100 Percent Plant-Derived Fiber for Vehicle Interiors
Submitted by Berny on Wednesday, September 12, 2007 - 18:58Mazda General

HIROSHIMA, Japan—The world’s first biofabric made with completely plant-derived fibers, suitable for use in vehicle interiors, has been developed by Mazda Motor Corporation in collaboration with Teijin Limited and Teijin Fibers Limited. This newly developed biofabric does not contain any oil-based materials, yet it possesses the quality and durability required for use in vehicle seat covers. Resistant to abrasion and damage from sunlight, in addition to being flame retardant, the new biofabric meets the highest quality standards. Based on this biotechnology, Mazda will strengthen its future research and development on non-food-based materials in consideration of the impact such technologies have on food supplies. Mazda plans to use the biofabric for the seat covers and door trim in the all-new Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid that will be exhibited in October at the Tokyo Motor Show 2007. The all-new Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid will also feature a bioplastic, which Mazda developed in 2006, in the vehicle’s instrument panel and other interior fittings.

TROIS-RIVIÈRES, Que.

The MX-5 Cup race at Trois-Rivières might have looked like a breeze for Saini, who lead the entire race unchallenged, but three full-course caution periods for disabled cars on course, made the 45-minute, 44.109-mile race seem like an eternity to the driver of the No. 28 Autobarn Mazda/ MX-5.
