THE BEAST IS BACK

Well, kind of...

For those of you out there that are not hard-core rotary devotees and may be unaware, 2011 marks the 20th anniversary of Mazda’s victory in the gruelling 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. To celebrate this anniversary, Le Mans event organisers have invited Mazda to demonstrate the legendary Mazda 787B on the Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans, France on Saturday June 11 prior to the main event, the 24-hour race. In addition to the on track action, the car will also be taking part in the Driver’s Parade through the Le Mans city centre on Friday June 10.

 

SYDNEY JAMBOREE TESTING AT FULL THROTTLE FRIDAY

There was plenty of on-track action last night at Sydney Dragway at the Full Throttle Friday meet. With the Sydney Jamboree on this Sunday, it was the last opportunity for teams to get some track time for testing before the big event and as a result, we were blessed with some pretty awesome passes.

Close call at Sydney Powercruise

While surfing the net we came across this clip on Youtube of our good friend Anthony DeOlivera getting a bit excited with the throttle in his 10-second Mazda 1000 ute during the off-street racing at the recent Sydney Powercruise.

Watch how what began as a pretty awesome powerskid quickly turns into a spin-dry, sending the little orange ute flying towards yours truly while I was snapping away at the action. As you can see, I was given a front row seat to the spin as it unfolded so keep an eye out for the sequence of photos in an upcoming issue of Zoom.

It hadn’t been smooth sailing for the Pac crew in the lead-up to the 20th running of the Jamboree but with a niggling issue finally taken care of in testing and the car in one piece, there was nothing left to do but head north to Willowbank and put on a show for rotor fans everywhere.

Rodney Rehayem’s back-halved Mazda RX3 was never supposed to be racing at J20 but after a convincing discussion with Jamboree promoter Ray Box, the car was loaded onto the truck and sent north from the Sydney workshop to the sunny delights that Queensland holds.

Jamboree 2010 - TCR Automotive FD RX7 - Eddie Colon In-Car Video

Eddie Colon arrived at Queensland’s Willowbank Raceway for J20 after travelling all the way from Puerto Rico only to find himself without his 6sec RX7. It hadn’t arrived in time so in an act of true generosity, Dib Taouil from Sydney’s TCR Automotive offered Eddie the drive of his street 289-spec 7sec FD RX7.
