"Mazda Factory's veteran Engineer, Mr. Uchitani shows how Rotary Engines are assembled. Amazing that each RE has been built by hand until 2003!"
RX3 13B PP 09 Targa Tasmania Mount Claude "chase" !!
At the start of the stage the Navigator of the rally spec Celica in front said "my Driver hates Rotaries but I love em, I bet you a beer you cant catch us on this stage..." With such high stakes, it was on !!
30 seconds head start, 9.86km and got him on the final straight where we hit approx 215km/h as we passed him! 10,000rpm with the 13B PP
Enjoy, we did!
