The 2016 V 4&Rotary Nationals, scheduled for January 30–31, is fast becoming rotary nirvana, with two more PAC Performance Mazda RX-3 coupes announced for the four-car PAC Attack — a special feature for an event that we’re already getting a little bit excited about. The entries come in the form of Elia Hajjar and Steve Barnett, each campaigning their own explosive 13B turbo half chassis RX-3 coupes.
The announcement comes in the wake of the 4&Rotary team confirming that the ‘GODFATHER’ would be making the journey to the land of the long white cloud. While the GODFATHER boasts a 6.91@195mph, Barnett and Hajjar aren’t too far behind. Barnett's 13B / Garrett turbo / G Force five-speed combination recently lit up the time boards with a personal best of a 7.16@180mph at the Atura Track Championships at Sydney Dragway, while Hajjar who runs a very similar 13B package has gone a fraction quicker at 7.11@189mph.
Sceptical of their pace? Turn the volume up to 11 and check out the clips of each car below:
With 2016 marking the 20th anniversary of the 4&Rotary Nationals, we expect the organizers to have a few more aces up their sleeve — including the final and fourth car to announce this week. The flag drops on the event on January 31 at Meremere Dragway, and we can’t wait!
