Waterford Hills 10.21.2012 Open Track Day
Mazda MX6 (race preped), running in "Experienced" Group (Blue). Best time of the day was 1:21.4 (street tires).
Good Start 1
Mmmmm....The sound of a KL in the afternoon.
Mazda Mx6 LS turbo Mic in front of radiator.
A short video with the microphone in front of the radiator. I recently blew an Exhaust gasket on the rear primary and have been hesitant to fix that..It can be heard in the video.. Im also Boosting 7psi, with a bit of lag I suppose from that leak. I Didnt go crazy with any of these pulls being the roads I take are often patrolled. In the video you will see I hesitate to shift into 4th, I was already doing over the speed limit and approaching traffic cones but I went for some of 4th anyway ;)
Onboard 1991 Mazda RX7 IMSA GTO four-rotor at Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion
What's it like to drive a priceless, four-rotored piece of Mazda history on the weekends? Ask Jeremy Barnes, the transplanted Aussie who heads Mazda North America's public relations department, and the amateur racer can't help but let an ear-to-ear grin begin to rise. Along with a dozen other Mazda colleagues, Barnes spent last weekend at the aptly-names Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion where five of the brand's four-rotor rockets were on display. Thankfully, the static display in the paddock came to life twice a day as the cars were raced in the IMSA group where Barnes is entrusted to wring the neck of the tubeframe 1991 RX7 IMSA GTO, and as he shares below and in the video, each session in the flame-spitting beast is filled with sensory overload.
