CRISPY'S ROTARY ROCKET
Crispy at Watkins Glen International Raceway. April 2001
Yeah, I'm part of this rag tag bunch of Negative-Camber track junkies. They set up this absolutely fantastic [sic] site for us to post some mindless drivel
about our cars and our antics on the track so below is my contribution. Here is a link if you feel the need, although I have no idea
why you would want to, to look at more of my stuff and pics of
me with the rest of the gang as they become available.
SO I GOT THIS LITTLE 1.3 LITER ROTARY ENGINED SPORTSCAR.......
A 1993 Mazda RX-7 R1 Twin Turbo Rotary. With a build date of april 1992 it's well past 10 years old now but it can still put forth a fairly good showing
when it's on the track. It has also won a few car shows but I'm not afraid to wring it out a bit on the track and as my friends can attest I'm not afraid (sorta)
to drive it hard enough to take me and it off into the weeds!
