Mazda 323 (BD/2) General Information

This was more or less a first and rare excercise for Achim Warmbold and his new founded company MRT/E (Mazda Rally Team (Europe)). The car was first used in the Rallye Monte Carlo 1982 and soon followed up by Achim's baby, the groupB RX7. So the 323 Turbo was only a short lived groupA project. Don't mistake it for the more famous groupA 323 4WD Turbo. The 323 Turbo we have here had an older shell and was FWD only and it also had only a 1.5 8v engine as opposed to the later version's 1.6 16v. The FWD 323 Turbo probably made its biggest headlines for the fact that the team boss himself was driving with Finnish lady driver Minna Sillankorva as a team mate.
