1986 RX-7 Bonneville Land Speed Record Car - Vintage Racing Photo Print Series - 20" X 30"
The Racing Beat photo archive contains 1000's of fascinating photo images showing various racing endeavors from the early 1970's through the mid-1990's. We've looked through these photos and are making available a limited number of exclusive photo prints. Here is your chance as a rotary enthusiast to collect a genuine piece of rotary history direct from the source.
Each photo print has been digitally scanned from the original color transparency and hand colored-corrected and retouched to optimize clarity and color detail. Each photo is printed on luster-finish photo paper for outstanding color retention and resistance to fading. Printed in an oversized 20" X 30" format, each print is carefully packaged for shipping and arrives ready for framing. (UPS shipping charges will be added separately.)
Driven to a Bonneville Land Speed record by Car and Driver's Don Sherman, this RX-7 shattered the existing record by over 37 MPH. This photo was taken on the salt flats after the car had set a new record of 238.442 MPH, besting the old record of 201.241 MPH by a wide margin. This is currently owned by Mazda and was returned to Racing Beat in 2006 for a engine overhaul visit. This car has been shown in recent years at the annual Sevenstock rotary events held at Mazda's US headquarters in California.
As a bonus, you can have your photo autographed by Racing Beat's founder's, Mr. Jim Mederer and/or Mr. Takayuki Oku. Jim Mederer, Racing Beat's chief engineering and fabricator, has continued to spearhead the development of many championship "rotary" efforts over the years. Joined by his "behind-the scenes" partner Mr. Oku, this dynamic team has continued to develop Mazda-based racing and performance projects for over thirty years.
