The Mazda 787B is the winning car of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1991. The car was designed by Nigel Stroud and had the peculiarity to mount a Wankel rotary engine that combined with the kevlar frame reached a maximum weight of 830 kg. The Japanese manufacturer after the ill-fated Le Mans of the previous year with the 787 due to the overheating of the engine, updated the prototype to aim for the final victory.
Johnny Herbert, Bertrand Gachot and Volker Weidler won the 1991 Le Mans 24 Hours with the Mazda 787B n.55, while the Japanese did not make a fast race and took advantage of engine problems that had Peugeot, Mercedes and Porsche. The podium was completed by the Jaguar XJR-12LM n.35 of Davy Jones, Raul Boesel and Michel Ferte and the Jaguar XJR-12LM n.34 of Bob Wollek, Teo Fabi and Kenneth Acheson both had to race with fuel economy at due to the technical regulation.
