Road - Fun Fitting Mazda

It was Mazda's turn to visit the Scottish motoring journalists yesterday and amongst the five new models on hand was the latest incarnation of the Mazda MX5. With only 124 bhp and a nought to 60 time of nearly 10 seconds, it doesn't sound very appetising.

But this wee gem weighs just a smidgeon over a tonne and goes like a stoat on a skateboard. With the hood down and the heater going full blast it was as much fun as a firecracker in a gunpowder factory.

The thing to remember is, it's a sports car, not a racing car. And for sheer driving pleasure, it will make your tootsies tingle - that is provided you can get in. This is not a car for the vertically challenged or the pie-enriched belt buster, but it's well worth the effort.
