The Mazda FXDD RX-8 GT – 3-Rotor ’20B’ Rotary Mazda engine, built by SpeedSource Engineering. 2,350 lbs. Around 400 HP.
Fast, light weight, nice.
With the recent announcement of the end of their rotary engine sports car, I thought this photo might be appropriate – an endangered species.
It has always been a joy to watch the RX-8 GT’s on the track. And I’ve always appreciated Mazda’s commitment to the racing scene, from the grass roots of SCCA / NASA spec-miata’s, cooper prototype lites, Mazda6 and RX-8′s in SCCA World Challenge, to RX-8′s in Grand-Am. It’s a refreshing change.
Do you have a favorite “zoom-zoom” moment?
