7’s Day is always on the same date, which of course is July 7th, aka 7/7. The date is to celebrate all things RX-7 related, Mazda’s lovechild that was born from the rotary engine. The event has its roots everywhere around the world but is more predominant in different parts of Japan, and the United States. All around the world, on the same date, everyone with an RX-7 of any generation get together for one day to burn off some of that carbon deposit.
But it’s not just RX-7’s. Any type of rotary powered car typically comes out for 7’s day including RX-8’s, Cosmos, RX-2’s, R100’s, Suzuki motorcycles and swapped cars found in a ton of Starlet’s, Datsun 510’s, and Miatas. But that’s not to say non-rotary powered cars aren’t welcomed, that’s right, your LS/2JZ/K20/SR20/1JZ swapped RX-7’s are also welcome!
This year, we would like to add a new element to our event, which we will also incorporate a swap meet for these unique cars. We will let our attendees bring their discontinued, rare, or not so rare car parts and allow anyone to set up their own table or tent to sell, buy or trade their parts! We believe that the RX-7/rotary engine lovers will enjoy this new dynamic and from our early polls, it seems we may be on the right track.
Also, new this year, we will be renting out a huge venue that will allow for hundreds of cars but in front of an extremely photogenic background that is the Harrisburg Art Museum, which is known by local artists and allows for the best backdrop possible for these vehicles. We will have RC Garage bring out their RC Car race track so that you or your kids can bring your RC cars to race! Food trucks such as Breaking Bao, portable restrooms, multiple city sound permits and giveaways from Falken Tire, RavSpec, RAYS Engineering and Racebred Components and a surprise competition will give so many people a reason NOT to miss this once-a-year event and the last 7’s day to fall on a weekend for many years!
Speaking of giveaways, we will be giving away Falken Tire drawstring bags, license plate holders, keychains, stickers, shirts and lip balm. Ravspec will also be giving away drawstring bags, keychains, and air fresheners, and RAYS Engineering and Racebred Components will be giving out stickers! There’s only two catches: 1) Show up. 2) Make ONE food donation for every one free item you’d like. *The Falken tshirts will require 5 food donations to exchange for a free tee* Every food donation will be for the Houston Food Bank. The Houston Food Bank is a solution to both hunger and food waste. America’s largest and nationally recognized as Feeding America’s Food Bank of the Year in 2015, the Food Bank distributes 122 million nutritious meals through its network of 1,500 community partners in southeast Texas, feeding 800,000 individuals each year.
But that’s not all!! In addition to all of the free giveaways, we have a special giveaway for our attendees that brought their RX-7/Rotary powered vehicle to the event! We will be raffling off a RAYS Engineering Tire Pressure Gauge, and a fully titanium cup made by Top Secret Japan courtesy of Ravspec in New York, and a GRAND PRIZE of a FREE set (4 total) of Falken Tires, any model, and any size up to 20″ courtesy of our friends at Falken Tire based in California! Same rules apply as above, 1) Show up with your RX-7 or rotary powered vehicle and, 2) Make at least ONE food donation to receive your raffle ticket! This giveaway will be restricted to ONLY RX-7 or Rotary powered vehicles at this event! It will be ONLY one raffle ticket per car to be entered in a separate raffle specific to this giveaway!
Don’t have a food donation? That’s ok! We will still have lots of free giveaways such as stickers, and FREE bags of Doritos, and NOS Energy Drink will also be handing out free cans! There’s absolutely no reason not to come out!
