A few broken rockers did not stop KGB-Racing BMW 2002 from attending SCCA Solo Nationals in Lincoln, NE. Three weeks prior to the departure date at American Autocross Series event at Marina CA a disaster struck. In the end of the day car lost power and start making a lot of noise from the engine bay. Fear we had was that the bearing were gone, but to a pleasant surprise, after taking the valve cover off we discovered that the problem was in the head. Exhaust rocker for #1 piston was broken. The pad fell off and was sitting in two pieces next to the valve spring. Lucky for us it did not fall into any oil passages.
