Welcome to my 'Sports-kit Savanna' circuit racer page... サバンナ スポーツキットI purchased this RX3 (as the 26th owner) early 2001 as a ‘roller’ from a friend in the local Mazda car club. It is a genuine 1972 10a coupe, however the original engine was long gone (it was running a 13bT and Supra 5 speed).The first challenge was to find 10a parts in reasonable condition – the past 30 years has not treated the few remaining engines kindly. A number of motors were stripped, and all were found to be in very tired condition. After an long search including the US, Australia, Japan and even the UK, a number of new and mint condition parts were located and the build began.Rated at 982cc, 10a’s powered the very early Mazda rotary’s including the Cosmo Sport 110s, the R100 and some early RX3’s, finally ceasing production early 1975. Although small in capacity, the 10a motor could power a stock standard RX3, complete with “pea-shooter” exhaust, down the strip in a flat 17 seconds, not bad for the class of 1972!Lots of people have helped get the car together and need to be thanked:- Richard Skilton, a good friend who has donated a considerable amount of time and effort to this project,- Steve Hardie from Rotary Engine Performance Services, Wellington NZ - if you are in the Wellington area and want someone to work on your car / build an engine contact Steve at email@example.com- The late Glenn Munro from Rotary Power Ltd, Auckland, NZ. Glenn was a top rotary mechanic / race car builder... and has a pile of stock, especially parts that are no longer available from Mazda. -- Darryl "RX-Sumo" Monk- Steve "MadMaz" Jones- Mike "Yok" Yorworth - providing inspiration for getting the car back on the track lol- Lance Thomson - Proform Engineering (panel and light engineering) firstname.lastname@example.org- Lloyd Wilkie (who sold me an earlier car that came with spares/advice that helped with this build)- and the other members of the Mazda car club in NZ www.mrec.rotary.net.nz (including Monty, Haroldo, Stephen Armstrong, Al Pierce, and many others)Photo's - thanks to Barry Styles (professional track pic's), Danny Lee and myself!
