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.

The Mazda RX-7 Replacement That Never Happened -The Mazda RX-01 Concept
Here's a fun look back at this old Top Gear Review by Andy Williams- He always got the best cars. Unveiled at the 1995 Tokyo Motor Show the Mazda RX-01 was a proposal for the next generation Mazda RX-7 sports car. Power for the RX-01 came from a 220 horsepower, 1.3 litre Wankel rotary engine which was mounted up front. However due to the engines compact size Mazda's engineers were able to position the powerplant further back and lower than in a conventional front engined car. This location meant that the weight distribution was more balanced and the handling improved. The styling of the RX-01 carried over the same flowing, rounded curves found on the third generation RX-7. But the RX-01 incorporated some extra features such as slim LED headlights and an integrated front spoiler which helped increase downforce over the front axle while also helping to channel air into the engine. Despite outside appearances the interior of the Mazda RX-01 concept actually featured four seats, although the rear seats were practically useless. The seats and centre console were trimmed in black leather and contrasting red trim was used heavily throughout to enhance the sporting feel - although by todays standards it looks rather dated. In the end the Mazda RX-01 never went into production and the RX-7 was discontinued in 2002, the RX-01 did pave the way for the Mazda RX-Evolv concept which would eventually become the RX-8.

1977 01 30 Daytona IMSA 24 Hour Race
This is an 8mm w/sound, 30 min long, conversion to video of our (Buz Fyhrie, Dave Fyhrie, Jack Finucan, Dan & Maggy Hartzel) road trip from Chicago in a Dodge Van to Daytona, Florida for the 1977 IMSA 24-Hour Race. I was there to drive a AA/GT Camaro (green) race car and also be a backup driver on the Mancuso-Greenwood AA/GT Corvette. I worked at Motor Sport Research in Des Plaines, IL who was the race shop that built the 427 CID engine for Mancuso and this Greenwood Corvette. Leaving Chicago we got caught in a blinding snow storm and had to follow a snow plow just to make our way via the back roads to Indianapolis, IN in order to rejoin the Interstate. We stopped in at Disney World (Orlando) for a visit there on a cold and rainy day. No lines anywhere on any of the rides on a lousy day in late January. LOts of interesting classic race footage shot by Dave Fyhrie around the pits and garages of the Speedway with cameo appearances by several famous drivers including: Paul Newman,Sam Posey (interviewed by Dave), Hurley Haywood (winner), Rick Mancuso, John Greenwood, Paul DiPerro and lots of others. I'll add more data later. Enjoy a real classic video. BUZZ

Mazda Race 787B, RX-792P, RX-7
Mazda 787B, Mazda RX-792P, Mazda RX-7 The 787B and RX-792B both use the 4-rotor R26B an engine that is easily capable of at least 900 HP, but limited for long term racing reliability to 700 HP. Racing rotary engines are easily one of the loudest Exhausts at idle and arguably the loudest Exhaust note on the track at full song. An incredible engineering feat and incredible engine.
