This is without question one of the most popular cars we have ever brought out to make an appearance at WTAC – the legendary Mazda 767B Le Mans. Well the great news is it we be returning in 2017, and if you missed out in 2014 this is your chance to see this amazing machine in person and out on track.
The Mazda 767B was built by Mazdaspeed Japan to compete in the 24 hours of Le Mans and in the Group C Endurance championship. The car is powered by a naturally aspirated 4 rotor peripherally ported 13J engine and produces just over 600hp and is SERIOUSLY LOUD!
“This car was certainly a huge hit with the fans last time around” said Superlap CEO Ian Baker “and we know a lot of people missed out on seeing it. So we decided to invite Hoshino-san back again for 2017 and he was absolutely thrilled with our offer and is looking forward to getting the car back on the track at Sydney Motorsport Park for the fans”
After coming to Australia in 2014 this 767B was shipped to Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK where it was badly damaged in a serious crash that has taken two whole years and several hundred thousand dollars to repair that included contracting several of the original component suppliers to bring it back to its original condition.
“It was heartbreaking to see this happen” said Baker “these cars are extremely rare and very valuable with only a handful ever produced. Many are not prepared to take the risk and put them on the racetrack. But Hoshino-san is a true enthusiast and loves getting it out for the fans and we are truly honored to have him coming back. But I daresay this will be the last chance Australian fans get to see this car so do not miss it this time! These cars are quite simply a national treasure these days.”
Don’t miss out on seeing this very special car not just on display but also in its natural habitat – on a race track! Add to that Keiichi Tsuchiya doing hot laps in the Hot Version AE86 and the incredible international competitors and the World Time Attack Challenge Sydney 2017 is shaping up to be a one-in-a-million experience!
We have gone to great lengths to make this the biggest and best WTAC ever, so don’t miss it – Click to get your Tickets today!
