Mazda North America struck fear into the hearts of traffic cones across the U.S. this week with the announcement of its 2006 Zoom-Zoom Live tour, which kicks off in Washington, D.C. August 12.

The tour will visit 10 different cities and offer nearly 50,000 drivers a shot at burning rubber in various Mazda vehicles. Each event features four driving courses where you can test your skills in Mazda's CX-7 crossover, the Mazdaspeed6, and the MX-5 and RX-8 sports cars.

Lots of prizes, food, fun, and best of all - it's free! More details and registration info at the Zoom-Zoom Live website.
