Feature - The Netherlander!

Jeroen Sterke is the Netherlander. Running a tuning company in Europe focused on Japanese sports cars. This is his Time Attack machine that serves as proof of his abilities.

"When I got my drivers license I bought a Mazda 323F and started from there. After a few years I decided to buy a RX-7 (the ultimate Mazda)"

His office is a special place. Carbon and suede is always a good combination for style and performance.

I hope he can remember what all these buttons are for. Jeroen drives the RX-7 himself in the Time Attack races in the Netherlands. Last year he won the championship in the "Super Pro" class and intends to defend his title.

He rebuilt and ported the motor and supplied power through a Garret GT35r Turbo. One of the key points of this car is that the 510hp is made with E85 fuel.

He is also proud of the V-mount setup that is made in house and it matches the self-produced deeply vented bonnet also gladly reporting satisfaction with both form and function.

Some detail work in pictures.

C-west body panels are used externally and Ultralite wheels are used for lightweight performance with Toyo R888 Sport Tyres.

What would be better that an a 7 Spoke design on an RX7. 245 up front on 8.5J and 275 on the rear mounted on 9.5J

The rear features a big diffuser and the thick section c-west wing. The twin downward facing tips look cool and hide sound.

  1. Russell,

    Thank you for this post !
    I will keep everybody up to date this season.

  2. Hi,

    I really like what you did with the car. Can you tell me exactly what model C-west wing that is? If you have a link that can link me to buy one that would be even better. I appreciate it.


  3. actually,
    Now I look very closely, the wing is not C-West. but very similar in design.

    1. I see. Could you give me a link to this product? I want to purchase one.
