rx7's race at indy suppport race

A video of a good race between a red 7 litre ls7 rx7 and a silver 20b turbo. This was an invitational event as a support race to the indycars. A 50 car field! Unfortunately the 20b was overdue for a rebuild and down on power, and had one of its rear calipers disconnected due to a very cracked rotor . Still a good race.

Nice......big boy Rx7,s there for sure,certain angles really show off how much rear tire they are both running.

Looks like the V8 gets off the corners better and the 20B catches up on straights.

That 200 lb weight difference is likely the key.

Awesome video—do you think if I sent the red RX7 guy a set of stock tail lights, he'd replace those cheezy altezzas?
