SOLD: #93 1997 BMW M3 Sedan


 
Bought in 2008 as a street car, this car was converted to a NASA German Touring Series (GTS) racecar to be driven by Rick Snyder in the GTS2 and GTS3 classes as well as in the E1 and E0 class for endurance racing. In 2016, the car was raced in the WRL GP1 class.


This is a solid car that is quick and reliable. Holds the GTS2 track records at Pueblo Motorsports Park and High Plains Raceway. Also, it finished 2nd in both the 12 and 24 hour WRL races at High Plains last season.


With the exception of the internals of the engine, transmission and differantial, I have personally touched every nut, bolt and part on this car. If I couldn't clean it or make it like new, I bought new. The only thing not done by me is the cage and welding, which was done by Titan Specialty Metals.
