Here are some actual gurachan – as in Grand Champion, not gurachan-style – Mazda RX-3 Savanna race cars from the mid- to late-70s. In this photo driver Naoki Nagasaka hits the 1978 Fuji GC and Super Touring series.
Note the “Hekinan Mazda Sport Corner” decal, denoting Hekinan city’s branch of the tuning arm that became Mazdaspeed. These sexy vintage photos come courtesy of the archives of RE Sugiyama, an Aichi-based rotary tuning house.
1979 Fuji GC and Super Silhouette.
1976 Fuji GC and Super Touring.
Satoru Nakashima and Eiichi Sugiyama at the 1977 Suzuka 1000km.
We want an RX-3 now.
Watch out for that Violet Turbo !!
The Rx3 would have to be one of the all time great JNCers !
Is that what that yellow car is? I can’t quit make it out.
John – well it IS the hakosuka slayer! 🙂
Those colors look great! Reminds me of Mugen livery
My father had a 68 Mustang fastback with a built 351 and got his butt kicked by a little lady in an RX-3! Not a good thing when he was trying to impress my mom on a date!
I would have married the other lady 😉
I like that Ben, I may add it to my post title, future Hakosuka slayer 🙂
There’s a cool video on that page of Keichi Tsuchiya racing a p-port FC against an R31 Skyline.
I’m sure glad I own one…
