Mazda MX-5 Thrillseekers

Once you've experienced the heart-racing excitement and wind-in-your-hair exhilaration of the agile Mazda MX-5 roadster, thrills are suddenly a lot harder to find.

Resilient England supporters know all about the thrills and spills of supporting the Three Lions in World Cup finals campaigns having witnessed Michael Owen embarrass Argentina to gain revenge on Diego Maradona's 'hand of God' goal in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico and David Platt volley home Gazza's inch perfect cross against Belgium in Italia 1990.



This summer in South Africa has been no different for angst-ridden England followers following two draws against undistinguished opponents, the United States and Algeria.

Although England supporters aren't exactly to hoping to experience living life on the edge quite in this way, scientists have found that thrill-seeking daredevils really do derive a feeling of exhilaration from undertaking fear-inducing activities such as bungee jumping and sky diving.

However, while jumping off bridges or out of planes might not be for the fainthearted, they're not exactly the extreme kinds of activities MX-5 drivers search out for their highs.

Rather, condor hang gliding in the Andes, somersaulting from the nose of a 40 ton whale or racing your friends in a buffalo stampede are just some examples of the lengths MX-5 drivers have to go to find comparable thrills to that of the new Mazda roadster.
