Spotted: A Mazda R100 Wankel. Once Mazda's were structurally available in two flavors: an ordinary or a Wankel engine could be ordered in the same cars. The name Mazda comes from an old religion. Ahura Mazda is the creative god of Zoroastrianism, he is the light and the knowledge.
The Mazda Familia FA2 had the R100 (1968-1973) as its unstable counterpart.
Felix Wankel's rotary engine had been improved by Mazda engineers. To prove the quality of their latest creation, the factory entered competitions. In 1969, Mazda even took fifth and sixth place in the 100 hours of Francorchamps with two R24 coupes. The Mazdas were the only cars the Porsche's Could keep track of 911. The Mazda R100 coupe was relatively expensive and only 1969 was sold in the Netherlands in 1970 and 11.
And we found one of those in Oosterbeek, at a normal garage. The R100 came there for maintenance. Even so ordinary.
The quiet owner had him for a long time and hoped to keep him for a long time.
"Because why would you throw away a nice car?"
He went to the 6 hour from Spa last year and was also spotted there. By the people of the Goodwood organization even.
