Yep, RX-792P IMSA GTP cars, saw them at Limerock Park when I was  
flagging in New England in the early 90s. Got some pictures of them,  
too. Sounded like a jet when they were full-song headed down No Name  
straight.

Jim Downing still brings out his Kudzu 2-rotor CSR to the Nationals at  
VIR. Great car to hear. I was at Daytona in '99 when Downing had the 3- 
rotor and 4-rotor cars there. Like Al said, killer sound, and a great  
lightshow. Exhaust glows light yellow/white under full throttle near  
the engine to bright orange at the exhaust tips, and camera flash  
bright flame pops on downshifts.

Yep, that was impressive, and it was under the "twilight" light  
levels. Imagine if there were still no track lights...
