The Mazda 787B was designed for Group C sports prototype racing in the World Sportscar Championship, All Japan Sports Prototype Championship, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and IMSA GTP regulations. Powered by Mazda's R26B Wankel rotary engine the car lacked the overall pace of Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, and Porsche, as well as Nissan and Toyota in the Japanese Championship; but were reliable and that allowed them to contend for their respective championships. 

   Because of its similar dayglow orange and green livery the 767B is often mistaken for the 1991 Le Mans winning 787B. Our model is 767B #202 chassis nr.002 sponsored by 'Charge' which finished 2nd in class and 9th overall in the 1989 Le Mans 24hrs race.

 

                                                                      1/24th scale kit.

                                                                          Built by Ian.

   Built in the early 1990s this is one of Ian's earliest race car models. It is built straight from the box and painted with Humbrol enamels. The kit, Hasegawa kit #CC018,  is very straight forward to build and detailed enough for a curbside kit. Hasegawa also released the kit in two other colour schemes and Studio 27 have released three decal conversion sets so there is scope for building other racers of interest.
