The Worlds Fastest Mazda 13B powered car is on it’s way to the 20th Annual Jamboree from Puerto Rico.

The Sporty Motorsports team of Gaby Skern & Eddie Colon have just finished loading the World Record Holding Mazda RX7 into the container bound for J20 at Willowbank Raceway in Australia.

Sporty (as the RX7 is known) has clocked the beams at an amazing 6.900 @ 198.4 mph the team are very excited about being able to unleash the RX7 on Willowbank’s legendary track, with the goal of cracking the magical 200mph barrier and dropping into the 6.8sec zone on Australian soil.

Also making their way to Australia is the Pica Motors El Yankee RX8 team. The El Yankee was purchased by Jon Blanch of in Australia late last year.

When it hits the track for the 1st time in Australia the original driver Jorge ‘Chivirico “Rivera will be at the controls. Jorge Lazcano will be attending looking to adjust the machine and enter the low 7sec zone again. Blanch is a regular in Puerto Rico and has been heavily involved in the development of the Sporty Motorsports RX7. That involvement will see a similar engine combination fitted to El Yankee for the 2010 Jamboree. El Yankee is no slouch either and has run a string of low 7sec passes with a best of 7.14 @ 191mph With the new engine combination the El Yankee team will be on the chase to take Sporty’s crown.

Both cars will compete in the Turbosmart Pro Compact class come August 21/22 and you can bet the Aussie Turbosmart Pro Competitors of Rodrigues, Rehayem, Willshire, Nabhan, Magliveras and others will be out flying the Aussie flag high.

Special thanks goes out to & Xtreme Rotories for helping make this trip possible. When the Puerto Ricans last toured in 2006 it was one of the biggest Jamboree’s ever and J20 is shaping up to be the same.
