Cool Mazda Mitty Teaser Pics (56k cries)

These "guys" were being prepped for the Mitty so I snapped some shots with the camera phone. I remember seeing each one run at their debut race. Both the GTU MX6 and GTO RX7 won championships. The GTP didn't do so well, but still the best sounding rotary ever.

GTU MX6







GTO RX7






3 fuel pumps:


GTP RX-792P

I decided last night that I'm probably going. Apparently the g/f is going to FL for a girls vacation or something so I don't see a problem going to ATL for the Mitty.

Sweet. Chad if you need a place to crash, and don't mind dealing with a half size German Shepard (with small dog inferiority complex), you're welcome over.

The RX7 was a four rotor with stated displacement of 2.6 liters. But the rotaries had some kind of displacement equation to set them on an even field with the others. I do believe that 3 liters was the line for piston power.

A video of the car sitting still? The Rx7 had no engine... and well, it was in the lead.

Anyone interested in a tour of Mazmart and Downing Atlanta to include a viewing of Mazda's 3 most famous race cars? Good chance driver Jim Downing (and my employer) will be there to start them up and answer questions and what not. This will happen Wednesday evening, before the cars roll out to RA for the Mitty.
