Pfaff 8 Hours Of Passion – Budget Track Car Challenge London City MazdaAug 1st, 2017
The rotary engine. A staple in Mazda performance. What better way to express the spirit of competition than competing with the 1.3 liter Wankel. As one of the newest brands under the Pfaff rooftop, we wanted to showcase our level of passion towards our product. That was the deciding factor on entering with the iconic 2004 Mazda RX-8.
The Mazda RX-8, with its beautiful body lines and unmistakable rotary growl is no pushover when it comes to the track. With a fully adjustable suspension setup, and riding on D2 coilovers, body roll and understeer in the corners are a thing of the past. All these suspension modifications wouldn’t have done much good with the original low compression engine, which is why we swapped it with a perfect JDM counterpart. All this backed up with a mixture of Mishimoto and Mazmart cooling components, there’s no worry of overheating on track day.
Next up, we wanted to really represent who we are through our livery. In case it wasn’t stated well enough above, we love the rotary engine. Everything from the sound to the engineering within it. You’ll see multiple rotors all over the vehicle and also incorporated into the iconic Japanese Rising Sun on the hood. It’ll be a livery that’s remembered for years to come.
