Fast Ride

Hop in the passenger seat of one of the world’s coolest cars.

This 1991 IMSA GTO Mazda RX-7 may be retired from duty, but—in this rare VR experience—you’ll climb behind the wheel to harness the force of one of the most coveted race cars ever made. As co-driver of the first and only Japanese racer to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans, you’ll experience a four-rotor 13J engine so remarkable it’ll reverberate in all 360 degrees.

Fast Ride puts you in the cockpit of the RX-7 for a lap at California’s Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with Jeremy Barnes, Mazda’s director of communications and unofficial corporate racing aficionado. Buckle up: The result is flat-out fantastic.

Fast Ride is produced by Wevr.
