Chassis# JM1FD3315P0206297, was raced extensively in the mid 1990’s, From 1994 and 1995 in the IMSA Supercar series against RX7 greats like Peter Farrell and others. From there, in 1996, to World ChallengeT1 and IMSA GT including Daytona 24hrs and Petit Lemans with a 15thoverall and winning GT2 in 1998. In 1998 the car was crowned USSRC GT2 Champion.From Pettit’s older web site “At season end Pettit had 140 points - 63 points more than the 2nd place team. This same car raced the Daytona Rolex 24-hour race 4 times." The Chassis shows some battle scars from those days but aligns and corners as it should and has proven that it remains competitive today, with multiple wins and podiums during my ownership.

Originally converted to a race car in 1994 by Sylvain Trembley and Cameron Worth from a 1993 FD and raced SCCA and IMSA Supercar soon after. Sylvain and Cameron went separate ways after 1994 with Sylvain starting Speed Source Race Engineering in May of 1995and eventually teaming with Mazda while Cameron grew Excellent Performance/Pettit Racing into a successful business built around his racing experience and success with this car. Among many drivers, another notable includes Bill Lester, who went on to success in NASCAR Truck series and a few Nascar Cup car shows.

The car can be seen on Youtube videos of old races like the1994 Phoenix IMSA Supercar race and the 1998 Petite Lemans. The car was also pictured in 1997 Mazda Competition Parts Catalogue and the 2000 publication of the Mazda RX7Performance Handbook as well as used repeatedly for marketing for Excellent Performance/Pettit racing.

I’ve owned the car for 18 years. Purchased from the previous owner in Florida in 2004. He purchased the car and spares from Cameron Worth at Excellent Performance (Pettit racing) in early 2000. Bills of sale from Cameron to Mark and then to me in hand. Originally racing in the90’s in white livery, the car was painted black by the previous owner and again by me a few years ago.

The previous owner raced the car infrequently in the Florida area for a few years where upon it was sold to me. I raced in the San Francisco Region of the SCCA for a number of years with success both in Sprint races and also Endurance event, winning the SCCA Elgin 4hr enduro, 1st in class and 2ndoverall along with multiple SCCA regional event wins and podiums. The car raced infrequently as my career had me out of the country half the year. An SCCA Logbook with Sylvian Tremblay as the first name in the book comes with the car..

The car is fresh.Last on track 8 years or so, but in my garage for many of those years as I worked to refresh and clean up many years of racing evolution on the car. Electrical, running gear, suspension all fresh and ready to race.

The car is fast.2430 lbs with 429hp/333tq at the wheels. Exceptional balance at 3% rear bias with 6 gals of gas. 50/50 cross and perfect alignment. Easy on tires and brakes. Dyno sheets and set up notes will be furnished to the new owner along with a binder full of information, equipment manuals and a box of receipts back to early 2000's

This car remains competitive today. There are not many mid 90s VIN# chassis, vintage eligible racecars as quick and sorted, and even fewer Rotary powered. Nearly ready to race, less belts and tires.

As the car sits today, the Haltech, single turbo, 13b is dyno only, transmission is OEM Liberty Gears with Cryo and the rear end is low milage, cooled, 4.1 geared OEM.
