1:18 scale. Add this one to your Moffat Collection. In early 1985, Allan took the RX7 to the US to compete in the Daytona 24 Hour race. It was entered in the GTO class and would be up against some faster cars. The team made minor changes to the rear spoiler, changed the front suspension and removed part of the interior to save weight. Practice saw them qualify 40th out of 76 cars but after just six hours into the race they were already up to 12th. It was an admirable performance given that they were up against some heavyweight opposition that included sports prototypes. After 16 hours they were up to an amazing ninth place, but the engine took in a stone and had to be repaired. They managed to get the car going again and finished 24th
