New Zealand-based Pulse Performance has just built a six-rotor Mazda engine. It’s the world’s first, and it makes 813bhp @ 9000rpm. They tell us it’s got a lot power more to come…
Nine-time World Rally Championship winner, Sébastien Loeb, wins on his FIA GT Series debut in a 12C GT3. Well played, sir.
