Charge Mazda 787B

Yup, its the classic Group C Charge Mazda 787B that we want to share. You’re probably wondering what the difference is between the 787 and 787B. Well it comes down to this: the 787B has an ECU to controlld the action of the telescopic intake for the rotary engine – how cool is that?!

However we are not focusing on how cool this car looks, but rather how GREAT it sounds! This year at the 2014 Spa Classic we found a lad who strapped a GoPro to the inside of the Mazda 787B that he was racing. Enjoy the great video demonstrating how difficult it is to pilot one of these types of cars around the famed Spa Francorchamp Circuit.

Here are some additional sounds of the race winning Mazda 787B, that was restored, and driven in demonstration laps at the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans

Never Give Up

That’s what Audi (Belgium team) said as they raced around the Belgium Track, Spa-Francorchamp in the FIA GT Series. This hour long beautifully piece together video highlights what it takes for a team to command four cars in a 24 hour race. It is probably one of the best “behind the scenes” type video this year (2013). Again – I really think this should be mandatory for teams to help highlight what goes in the word “team work”.

Don’t take our word for it – sit back, put the video in full screen, turn up the sound and take it all in.
