Running a 12A Bridgeported Rotary powering through a Mazda Comp 4speed gearbox,
our RX3 makes approximately 280 horsepower. Tube framed front and rear and riding on fully adjustable Koni 8212 shocks and
Panasport 13x7 Ultralite wheels, her short wheel base and agile handling has provided her the ability
to win races. Starting her racing life at Westwood Raceway in Coquitlam, B.C., she competed in and won numerous
sprint races, she also won first overall in 1998 at the 8 hours of the Cascades enduro race in Portland,
Oregon. She continues to be dominant in the SPU and GT3 classes, against cars almost 40 years younger. One of only
a few remaining RX3s racing, this car always draws attention, on and off the track. In January of 2009 the Retro Racing Team
began a complete refit of our RX3 as well as body restoration and paint, below are pictures of this process and the end result.
