Upon its release, the distinctive Mazda RX-8 was celebrated due to its fresh approach to sports car technology and styling. It featured an innovative rotary engine, a rarity in the automotive world. Unlike conventional piston engines, the RX-8's twin-rotor rotary engine delivered an exceptional rev range and an impressively high redline, offering a unique and exhilarating driving experience. Its compact design allowed for less weight and a lower center of gravity, contributing to superior handling and balanced weight distribution. The RX-8 further set itself apart with its unconventional "freestyle" four-door coupe body style, providing practicality without sacrificing its sporty nature. Embracing a driver-centric approach, the RX-8 featured rear-wheel drive and a near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, translating to remarkable agility and cornering precision.

Naturally, these design traits led many owners to take their RX-8 to the track. At the highest levels, SpeedSource Race Engineering built RX-8s for the IMSA Continental Series with that expertise filtering down to grassroots-level SCCA autocross competition. Tastefully modified by its first owner with SCCA Autocross in mind, this example features many of the custom, trick bits that often set a streetable championship-caliber car apart from the field.
