Their car is just plain awesome...has some incredible fabrication that went into the car. The detail really has to be seen in person to be appreciated. Added bonus is that they won the event! =)

Would help ward off all the answered-too-many times questions. Just lay out what all the different sanctioning bodies are, along with the different levels of competitiveness (i.e., SCCA's fender-bashing compared to the BMW club's probation rule, or the 8/10ths views of the various vintage groups...)Also maybe go into autocross prep and basic buildup - a most '02s that run in SCCA events aren't stock, and have to be carefully built to be competitive and in the right class...

Possibly also could stick in images of some of the more popular prep groups (namely ITB and BMWCCA E-Mod).

It seems to me that most people who don't want to get into racing are just as enthusiastic about the specifics as those of us who *are* crazy enough to want to build a car and step out onto the track in it.

Maybe a good article on fundamentals of certain things. www.e30m3performance.com is a decent beginner's tech base that might be worth modeling things off of.

Just some thoughts. Good luck!

thats why you see "Performance" in the banner up there... Not sure if we are going to keep it tho because it doesnt match the rest of the site and makes the banner too long...

Anyways, thats a great idea! I was talking to steve about that last night in chat in fact. Now, who should I interview about all the details, or who knows enough to actually do a writeup like that?

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
