Who We Are

Pettit Racing is located in Palm Beach, Florida.

For the past 25 years, we have concentrated on rotary engine development, chassis performance, and racing these amazing engines.

At Pettit we constantly work on new ideas and products. Most of our knowledge is gained from our racing experience and input from customers like you. In our full service shop we install all the products we sell and provide additional services including engine building and dyno testing, chassis setup using digital scales, and full race car preparation services.

With over 25 years experience racing Mazda rotary powered cars, we are highly regarded by industry and enthusiasts world wide as the source for technical information and advice. For 10 years our focus on turbo rotary engines and FD series RX-7's has gained us much knowledge and enabled us to be the only race team to have consecutive top finishes with turbo charged rotary engines at venues like the Rolex 24 and the American Le Mans Series races. With the end of the RX7's production run, we have carried our knowledge over to its rotary successor, the RX8, and continue to develop exciting new products for it.

Our new location in West Palm Beach Florida places us midway between three major race tracks; Daytona, Sebring, and Homestead, and also only a few miles from Moroso Motorsports Park, where we do all our track testing. Our state of the art facility houses a complete race car fab shop, machine shop, engine shop, service center, and tuning laboratory.
