1997 BMW M3 2-door race car - BMWCCA IP

Bought the car in 2012 with ~110k on the chassis and since then it has evolved into a fully track-dedicated vehicle, primarily run in time trials with COMSCC.org. It is a turn-key track car that is very safe, well balanced, and nearly ready to go wheel-to-wheel racing. The car ran perfectly the last time it came off the track. This would be a great car for HPDEs/Time Trials or could be made to be a competitive NASA GTS2/3, NASA PT/TT C or B, or BMWCCA IP race car.

Weight: ~2750lb empty History with COMSCC Time Trials • 2015 Overall Championship • 4x Class Championships • 32 events, 28 wins, 3 FTDs, 15 lap records (12 active, 3 archived) • Lap times in current trim – Palmer: 1:42, NH-CC: 1:15, Thompson: 1:17, Mosport: 1:32, Canaan: 1:00 This car still needs a couple things to go wheel-to-wheel racing, specifically: • Seat is not up to date – it will either need a re-cert or a seat brace • Windshield has a small crack • Needs a kill switch My dad and I have loved driving this car and developing the handling and performance over the past 6 seasons. With some of the recent tweaks, including the MCS 2-ways, the balance and handling are spot-on. The motor feels strong and the numbers are good. Starting in 2013, Wile Motorsports has maintained the car, and the owner Jake has been a great racing partner who has grown to know this car inside and out and care for it as if it were his own. Car can be seen in Wrentham, MA Email nicholas.fontana@gmail.com Text 508-208-0461
