Project 3 Rotor Unveiled at Rotary Revolution

CONTACT: Justin Anderson,
Anderson INK Marketing Communications



KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (Feb. 22, 2005) RotorSports Racing owner Bryan Smith announced today that his Kannapolis-based race and street-car preparation, repair and tuning shop has become an official sponsor of the Rotary Revolution show. Rotary Revolution, scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday April 22-24 at Indianapolis Raceway Park in Clermont, Ind., is set to be the Midwest's largest gathering of rotary car owners this year.

Along with its sponsorship, RotorSports Racing will unveil its Project 3-Rotor, a three-rotor, single-turbo 3rd Generation RX-7. RotorSports is also planning to hold a parts raffle, as well as selling its world-renowned 13B rotary engines at a discounted "show-only" price.

"We are pleased to again take part in the Rotary Revolution," said Smith. "This show has grown in leaps and bounds over the years. It offers just the right combination of events, speakers and vendors to appeal to every rotary enthusiast. We're excited about our participation."

Project 3 Rotor was completely developed in house by RotorSports Racing. The car sports a RotorSports Racing-built 20B three-rotor engine that makes extensive use of RotorSports Racing's proprietary ceramic coatings package. It also uses RotorSports' dual oil cooler kit, braided oil injector lines, rear suspension links, urethane engine mounts, and much more.

"We've been developing Project 3 Rotor for quite a while now, and we're delighted that it will be ready to roll for Rotary Revolution," said Smith. "This car, with its revolutionary three-rotor engine, uses many of the products RotorSports has pioneered during its 20-plus years of operation. It represents all that is great about RotorSports Racing and showcases our reputation in the rotary Mazda market."

RotorSports Racing is a service-oriented specialty shop offering custom-built rotary engines, preparation services, tuning, and performance products for Mazda rotary applications, performance street, race cars, and aviation engines. RotorSports Racing is your one-stop shop for two and three-rotor engines, and proven performance products by RotorSports and other reputable vendors.

Hey Mich.....

Is there going to be any vendors or displays of rotary trucks or parts for such?

Just wondering if there is going to be anything specifically for us, or is this mainly advertising for the RX-7 crowd?

I'll be there... but my booth won't really have any REPU Stuff, unless I can find some REPU Toys...

The REPU specific stuff is hard to come by with the vendors. Leatherseats.com will be looking at all the rotary vehicles there and looking at doing more styles of seat covers. The problem is our repu attendance is normally pretty dismal up here in the northern midwest states so there isn't a lot of call for their parts.

We are having a specific "part swap" area this year where the attendees can swap extras they have, but again we'd have to get a lot more repu's to attend. The event really focuses everything we have on the rotary engine and all the cars that they are in.

I personally would love to see more REPU's in attendance which is one of the reasons I post everything on this forum.I almost bought one right before last year's event just so the people here in the Midwest could see one. The wife stopped me as I was about to bid reminding me I had enough projects already. Most of them don't even know they existed which is a shame.

Here's the events Mission Statement so you can see how we focus on the engine:
"To provide an annual opportunity for enthusiasts to promote rotary powered vehicles, enhance knowledge of each vehicle and showcase sponsors with rotary expertise."

It's all about the rotary, not the shell it's wrapped around. I've invited guys with chevette's, midget's, subarus, etc... And I know this year we will have at least one 13b powered midget, one RE-5 motorcycle (maybe 2), a few RX-3's, and one rotary powered snowmobile. I'd love to add 17 REPU's to that list, a few cosmos, some 2's, 4's, etc...

Here's hoping I see some zoomzoom trucks there this time around.
