792P Race Car

Thanks to a well timed text message by all of our favorite Rotorhead's, Holly Woodward, I was able to get a look at the factory-owned, 792P race car.

4 rotor music to my ears!

Thanks Holly!

I just realized that there is no way to type the sound it makes. Hard on.

Absolutely awesome video John! I was hoping to get to make it to this since I'm south of Atlanta in Columbus now, but I just had too much going on.

One of the prettiest IMSA GTP cars ever made, but never got enough development. Like our cars, it still looks almost modern compared to it's contemporaries.

Well said. The designer of this car, Lee Dykstra did the GTO RX7s as well. I absolutely love this car. I think it is THE prettiest .

I as about to paint my car 25G, but this looks slightly different and totally badass!

Yeah. There was no week ahead to work with. We are at the liberty of Mazda North American Operations as to when they would pick up their car and it could not be started or shown until work was performed. Practically no window. I got news that the driver was on his way yesterday afternoon after we began publicizing this which terrified me but it worked out perfectly. We did our Mazmart warehouse tour followed by our engine shop and dyno room tour and then finished by going across the street to our Downing Atlanta race shop for the 4 rotor finale .

It was a ton of fun. Thank you to all that showed up and those that helped with the impromptu promotion (Holly, Phillip Pruitt, Joseph). It was a real joy meeting and seeing everyone that showed up as well.

Paul.

Paul,

I hear ya... I really do wished I could of made it out there for the 4 Rotor. But since I've seen it in the past at the shop and 7stock, I'm not too heart broken

Also, I'll be bringing my 3 Rotor Eunos Cosmo to ATL for a new paint job in next couple of months. Not sure if you want to see it but if so, I'll stop by the shop before it gets stripped and painted. Maybe a "Mazda/Rotary" gathering at the shop? I would also like to get Rick's thoughts on that car

Phil
