The Mazda Savanna RX-7 Racing model is a true classic. Body styled as a FR Sports Coupé, its lifetime lasted a long period from 1971 to 1992. The model started as RX-3 and lasted into the first two generations of the RX-7, namely the SA/FB and FC series.
Mazda Savanna RX-7 Racing
The racing pedigree of the RX-7 is without a doubt, racing versions of the first-generation RX-7 were entered at the prestigious 24 hours of Le Mans endurance race. Mazda began racing RX-7s in the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) GT Championship (GTU) series in 1979. That first year, RX-7s placed first and second at the 24 Hours of Daytona, and claimed the GTU series championship. The car continued winning, claiming the GTU championship seven years in a row. The RX-7 took the GTO championship ten years in a row from 1982. The RX-7 has won more IMSA races than any other car model.
