SAE HONORS YAMAMOTO OF MAZDA AS 1993 SAE FELLOW

 DETROIT, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) will today honor Mazda Motor Corporation's Executive Advisor Kenichi Yamamoto, as a 1993 SAE Fellow based on his outstanding technical leadership in automotive engineering particularly the development of the rotary engine.
 Mr. Yamamoto is among 15 SAE members to be recognized with the SAE Fellow grade for their exceptional qualifications, experience, and sustained accomplishments in automotive or related engineering fields. The Fellow grade was established in 1976, and there are currently 269 Fellows.
 "I'm truly honored to have my work recognized by an outstanding engineering organization such as SAE," said Mr. Yamamoto. "And I'm very pleased to become a member of the prestigious SAE Fellow grade."
 Mr. Yamamoto started his career with Mazda 47 years ago, and has served as chairman and president of Mazda Motor Corporation during his career. In 1963, he became manager of the newly formed Rotary Engine Research and Development Division, and was responsible for Mazda's rotary engine development based on Dr. Felix Wankel's rotary engine. Mr. Yamamoto is widely known as the "foster father" of the rotary engine.
 Mr. Yamamoto has an international reputation as an engineering expert. He has received many honors, including the 1986 Man-of-the-Year award by Automotive Industries and SAE's 1987 Edward N. Cole Award, for his contributions to automotive engineering.
 Election to SAE Fellow grade is based on a nominee's notable achievements and personal contributions in engineering, science or technology, engineering administration or engineering education, or a combination thereof.
 Mr. Yamamoto was unable to attend the SAE ceremony. Mr. Koji Kurimoto, executive vice president, Mazda Research and Development of North America, Inc., will accept the award on his behalf.
