[ MAZDA 787B について -About the MAZDA 787B- ]

2018年4月現在、ル・マン24時間レースにおける日本メーカー車唯一の、そしてロータリーエンジン唯一の総合優勝車としてその名を残すマシン、それがMAZDA 787Bです。この優勝は、マツダとロータリーエンジンの長い歴史の中でもひときわ輝くハイライトとなった出来事といえるでしょう。マツダのロータリーエンジンとの関わりは、1960年代 まで遡ります。当時西ドイツの自動車・オートバイメーカーであったNSUが世界初のロータリーエンジン自動車を販売しており、日本自動車メーカーの中で後発であった東洋工業(後のマツダ)はNSUと技術提携の契約を結び、社運を賭けてロータリーエンジン車の開発に取り組むことになりました。そして1967年、最初のマツダ製ロータリー搭載市販車、コスモスポーツが発売になります。オイルショック後、NSUとその提携企業がロータリーから撤退しても、マツダは唯一その後もロータリーエンジン車を作り続けることになります。

The Mazda 787B is currently the only Japanese built car to have won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and doing so equipped with a rotary engine. The victory not only marks an incredible milestone for the Mazda company, but also a special moment in the history of the rotary engine itself. The rotary engine was first introduced in automobiles by German automotive/autobike maker NSU in the 1960s. In order to separate themselves from other Japanese auto companies, Toyo Kogyo Co. (later known as Mazda Motor Co.) formed a contract with NSU and began development on rotary engine powered automobiles. In 1967 Mazda released the first of such vehicles: the Cosmo Sport. After the oil shock NSU and their rotary supplier dropped from the market, but Mazda continued to produce cars running on rotary engines, making them the sole supplier of rotary engine powered automobiles.
Mazda first entered the 24 hours of Le Mans in the 1970s, with their first official debut in 1973 with the rotary engine equipped Sigma MC73. While there were years where the team did not participate, when they did the team continued to use rotary engines in their entries. Beginning with the 4 rotor engine in the Mazda 767 that first appeared in 1988, and the 1990 entry 787, the team’s effort finally came to fruition as the upgraded version of the 787, the 787B, won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1991.
Due to a change in regulations, 1991 became the last year that rotary engines could be used in Le Mans. During this year, Mazda entered three cars: a 787 and 787B both under Works colours, and a third 787B painted in Renown green/orange. The three cars faced strong rivals such as the Mercedes C11 and XJR-12 on the track, but the Renown painted 787B (No. 55) beat out the competition to take first place overall in the end. Car no. 18 under the works team managed a 6th place finish.
