A pretty cool video - well done Pete for contributing such a well sorted and clean FC s(c)

Very good of Mazda UK to commission this video, given that the future of Mazda Rotary Engined cars looks bleak - apart from maybe using the RE as a battery charger in a hybrid!

Yes, The FB in the video is the Scottish car, bought by Mazda last year.

I've written to Mazda to inform them of the potential given by a go-faster stripe......dark blue, about 20mm wide, should give a good speed boost on this car....... yay
