The celebrations will host a maximum of 200 French and European MX-5 owners

Organizing an exclusive event for one of the most inclusive sports cars ever made - the Mazda MX-5 Miata - may seem paradoxical, but that's exactly what Mazda France is doing this June at the Le Mans 24 Hours race. A maximum of 200 MX-5s and their owners will gather for a show and shine celebration at a field adjacent to the legendary race circuit.

The event will only be open to MX-5 roadsters of French or other European extraction, so travelers need not apply - unless their cars are native, of course.

Also on celebration will be the launch of the newly facelifted NC Mazda MX-5 and Mazda's return to European motorsports with the running of the Le Mans event.

Those lucky enough to secure a spot in attendance will also get a package of swag including a polo shirt, rally plate, breakfast and dinner plus a spot in the Mazda Camp to see the race up close. Not bad for €100 (about $140).

The show and shine competition will also award the most perfect MX-5 with a 'Best of Show' trophy.
