Sharing Some Vintage Race Shots


Recommended Posts

home from work early today (yea)




My Christmas contribution.  AlpinA 2oo2 Gr. 2 car in its black livery.  The CSL is interesting in that I have never seen a picture of that car in competition.  Someone told me it eventually ended up with the later Gr. 2 flares and Gosser Beer livery.....

The o2 in the "motorsport" livery is I believe the "Niklaus Racing" (?) turbo 2oo2 from 80's (?).  The car was as I recall pretty highly developed, had an 8v M10 turbo charged that made (allegedly) like 700bhp or some number like that.  Details are foggy now, but I am pretty sure that is the same car.


Someone sent me this the other day......check what comes rolling out of the paddock at around .55 secs into the video - my AlpinA car in its "Langnese" red/white livery #28.  This is trailer from the complete video, which i think I probably need to purchase.  Some other great BmW shots as well.

similiar pose to post #16!..



Joel - I think that may be the picture that was used as the base idea for the cover illustration for the Clymer BMW Service-Repair-Handbook by Donald Houston.   Inside credit for the cover:  An original painting done especially for this book by Walter Gotschke.


The illustration shows a Golf-colored 2002 (or 1600) # 12 with Champion spark plug banner on the upper apron and Goodyear on the spoiler.  The windshield banner reads "BMW RACING CLUB".
