The Mazda Motorsports family and the world of sports car racing lost veteran driver Buzz Marcus on April 16. We are saddened to lose Buzz, his decades of winning (literally and figuratively) spirit, his jokes, and his passion. In honor of Buzz and in sympathy to his loving family, we are re-running this story which originally appeared on MazdaMotorsports.com and RACER.com in January 2017.
We are also going to honor Buzz with a special In Memoriam Spirit of Mazda award for his years of dedication to our sport and constantly striving to represent Mazda and the many other brands he drove for throughout his career. God’s Speed, Buzz…you will be forever missed.
Buzz Marcus – Forever Young
If there is one Mazda racer who fits the “Been There, Raced That” mold, it is Buzz Marcus. Buzz has been racing for over 50 years and shows no signs of slowing down. We caught up with Buzz to ask him a few questions about his career.
