Who Are Essex Rotary


The home of high quality rotary engine and car care at competitive prices.

Essex Rotary was born from a passion of working on these amazing rotary cars that Mazda have given us over the years. As Essex Rotary we are still quite young (compared some some long established specialists), but our passion enthusiasm and understanding of these cars far outweighs our age.

From the ownership of our first RX-8 the love for these cars was obvious, everything had to be right, there was no compromise on parts and no corners cut.  this is reflected in the way we do things here at Essex Rotary. You will not be advised or supplied cheap sub standard parts and our standards of work are always very high.

The Beginnings

Purchasing our first RX-8 way back in 2008, at the time we where not aware just how big of an impact this car would have on our future or even the beginning of Essex Rotary. Almost immediately we started working on this car, with general maintenance, and a few choice modifications, This is where the passion started to grow.

From working on our own Rotary vehicle, things slowly moved in to working on friends cars and it became a natural progression for us to then move in to offering our expertise in these unique engines as a service to the wider community and general public. Back then we didn’t know everything and to be frank we are still learning new things on a regular basis, overcoming new challenges when diagnosing new issues with these vehicles.


From a simple beginning Essex Rotary has grown to offer extensive knowledge and an intimate understanding of what makes these cars tick, however with an insatiable thirst for knowledge we are (as we where when we began) always learning new things. Our own car collection has also grown to include a range of Rotary Powered cars from the last 30 odd years Including

  • First Generation RX-7′s 
  • Second Generation RX-7′s
  • Third Generation RX-7′s
  • RX-8

These span purposes from daily drivers, and stock cars to track day cars, and drifters too.

The biggest recommendation I can make is that Aston will not try to bulls*** you, but tell you how it is and give you an honest opinion, and in addition will treat you car just as he would his own. Knowledgeable and willing, with customer service being a priority, something you find little of nowadays.
