A really nice guy from Sweden sent me some stuff recently that I have only had time to read in the last week/two. "Fredrik" from Sweden has restored or rather made a highly specified replica rallye car complete with Schnitzer 20,4 16 valve engine. He was kind enough to send me quite a few photo's which I will post up to my blogs in the near future. In the mean time I picked out a few pages of the catalogue stuff that actually went into my ALPINA GRp. 2 car, I was really (REALLY) surprised to see that they had a catalog offering for a 4 valve motor (which was the ALPINA engine with a Schnitzer cylinder head). Very interesting.

About that tank advertisement. It says something like

"Racing tank setup, 2 parts, 90 or 100 liters with additional tank (?) made of aluminum with fast lock, large breathing system, very fast filling.

One part tank setup for racing use - please ask. "

I'm sure Fredrik can give you better translation but there's not much info.

Mark,

On the Motor Nord engine I just remembered I have seen a picture somewhere that they even created their own valvecover with the Motor Nord name on it in stead of Schnitzer. I don't recall if it was a picture from Fredrik or Lee.

On the wheels; you have got here 3rd and 2nd version of the same wheel. I've got sets of both. The most difficult to find however is the first version where the spokes are not joined by 2 as in the second version. You can find a picture of it in the famous Gert Hack book 'BMW's schneller machen'. The reason you do not find it often anymore is that these were really too fragile. Even the 2nd version was too fragile. I am quite confident I will never use my set on a track but only for photoshoot purposes... Be happy you didn't buy it... The 3rd version with the ring is the best.

Warm regards,

Tom
