A friend over seas sent me this and suggested I watch the end of it ... from about 3:20 on to the end. I had seen this video before although I had never watched it to the end - it was I think posted up here some time ago (probably more than once. The first 45 seconds are pretty entertaining - brutal with the o2 that rolls (looks like the passengers head comes out the side window - no helmut - someone injured pretty severely I would think). The interesting part is of course seeing my car in video - I am really stoked to see it......even if the driver almost runs into a Porsche 914/6 GT going into a turn and then has a pretty wild spin out in the same turn just after that. The car is number 76 I think - not sure what race it is, not familiar with that particular numbered car and a race it was in??? From about 3:20 on to the end of the video you can see the car albeit briefly a few times.

that was fairly fortunate.

I got to see what you were talking about... In the second rollover, the chamonix roundie, that woman almost got crushed while she was hanging out the window. Not that the drip rail treated her head very kindly (that looked like it hurt)

Car control clinic of the 70's?

Steer into the skid, blip the throttle, use your seatbelt if you want to-- it's optional.

Make it different... or just do it differently

    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
