Mazda MX5 Cup – Jinba-Ittai – Media 4h race 2015

This started as a little side project because I noticed and liked the Jinba-Ittai graphics while doing some research about Mazda cars. I ended up putting a lot more time into this than I thought, due to the tires and suits that came with the car. Anyway, here is the outcome:

The Mazda Media 4-hour endurance race of September 2015 was the first racing event with the new roadster. The racing setup is not entirely the same as the model of Assetto Corsa but quite close.

This car was Mazda’s own entry in the race. ‘Jina-Ittai’ or ‘人馬一体’ (ie unity between horse and rider) is one of their marketing and conception mottos. The driver line-up was composed of several senior executives of the corporation, including their heads of R&D and design.

  1. Incredible work!

    I painted the car in iRacing, but was never able to identify all the logos along the bottom of each door, and those I could id (e.g. Delta), I couldn’t find copies to trace in Ai.

    How did you find them? Do you have a link maybe?

    Also, Hot Version won the 2016 race, with pretty much the same livery, and Jinba-Ittai finished well down the order. The only change I immediately noticed were new emerald green mirrors (the top half).

    Anyway, great work as always!

    • Thanks! Most of the decals are OEM providers or companies in Mazda industrial clusters (Delta, Y-tec, Hirotec, Toyo seats, etc). There is a couple of decals that I am not sure of, due to the lack of hi-res pictures. They’re guesswork, but with related Mazda companies (Sumimoto, Yoshiwa). I can send you a copy by mail if you want to update your iracing skin. They’re small but should be enough for a 2048 skin.
