Screamin’ Demon: BMI Racing’s Epic 4 Rotor Wankel Video

Yes, I did say Epic.  Trust me, just listen to this video from BMI Racing!

We wanted to show you BMI Racing, a Racing Team/Company who moved to the USA from Australia to pursue their racing dreams.  Their plan is to build 2 Mazda RX-8 sport coupes each with a naturally aspirated 4 rotor engine (stock they come with 2 rotor engines and make 240hp), 1 car to compete in drifting and a 2nd car to race in Time Attack events.  They have finished the first one and began testing this past summer.

Isn’t it nuts that a crowd will cheer like that over an engine? 

It’s the first RX-8 Renesis 4 rotor engine in the world right now.   It sounds like an F1 engine, it just SCREAMS!!!  What’s a 4 rotor Wankel?  Well, simply put, each RX8 engine has 2 rotors mounted in series.  This 4 rotor is sort of a “big block” rotary with 4 rotors mounted in series, or 2 RX8 engines mounted in series.  Cool right!?  We don’t have many details about the 4 rotor engine setup just yet.  We hope to fill you in with the juicy rotary details in another post soon.

Here’s a quick snap of the RX-8 4 Rotor machine at SevenStock 12.  I’m diggin’ that grey paint with matching roll cage, extra wide fenders, and GT wing.  I wonder if this is the drift or time attack machine?
