1979 Mazda RX-7

Share on:

The GTU Car

After an exploratory effort with two factory-entered RX-3s in the 1978 Daytona 24-Hour race, Mazda returned for 1979 with two immaculately prepared RX-7s for the GTU class. The two cars - one entered for three Japanese drivers, one for three Americans - qualified one-two in GTU. They ran strongly all night and as dawn broke were running in the top-10 overall. By the finish, the Japanese drivers' car was in fifth overall and took the GTU win, with the second RX-7 right behind, seventh overall and second in GTU. This was the beginning of the RX-7 dynasty.
