Mazda introduced rotary engine vehicles in the U.S. in 1971, beginning with the R100. But what is a rotary engine, and how does it work? A rotary engine is often referred to as a "Wankel engine," after its inventor Dr. Felix Wankel, and is a type of internal combustion engine that utilizes a triangular rotor spun around a fixed pinion by the use of a ring gear to produce smooth, high-power rpm from a compact size motor. Mazda has utilized this exceptional technology in vehicles like the fun to drive Mazda RX-8 Shinka and standard model RX-8s to produce a sports car that is lightweight and generates high horsepower with little displacement. Recently, Mazda North American Operations and Skip Barber Racing School LLC announced a new, long-term partnership agreement that promised to reshape the world of competitive motorsports, proving that great innovations like the rotary engine and the Mazda RX-8 are here to stay. Reliable Mazda has excellent Mazda deals on the new 2011 RX-8 for Springfield area drivers in the mood for some Zoom-Zoom!
