Hi again Racing Ears,

Here is a cool series of clips from the 2016 Rolex Pre Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.  I was finally able to see and hear the 1991 Mazda 787 race car that was the older brother of the Mazda 787B that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans back in 1991.  I got to see and hear 3 of these brilliant race cars that are iconic in Japan and throughout the world.  This features the sounds of the #62 Mazda RX7 GTO that was also the 1991 IMSA GTO Champion, the #202 Mazda 767B that had been recently restored in it’s brilliant orange and green livery, and the Mazda 787 that was 8th place at the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans.  I specifically wanted to finally see and hear the Mazda 787 that has its iconic soundtrack.  All of these great racing cars were amazing to see after all these years.  Many thanks go to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for allowing me access at the 2016 Rolex Pre Reunion.

Thank you for listening to The Racing Ear Journal.
