  1. We ran the HMSA Spring event at Laguna Seca last weekend. I took my new M3 along with the might K2002. The Car had a new engine for this season. It was built by Ivey Engines in Portland. The Tinney engine we had in the car for the last 4 seasons was due for a refresh so it has been shipped back to Terry. The performance of the two engines seemed pretty similar. The only thing I noticed was the Ivey engine had a flatter torque curve, and a little bit wider power band. As this was my first outing with the M3 I took my time getting to know the car.
  2. Fiew weeks ago, the first race this season. Damn, first the camera had a damage, then a rocker arm problem after 45 minutes......I hope the season finish better then it starts....... Onboard second practice W.
  3. We ran our Koepchen 2002 at the Sonoma Historics over the weekend. The car ran well all weekend and we managed a 6th over all and 3rd in BS in the feature race on Sunday. I was a bit disappointed to miss a shift coming out of Turn 7 on the last lap and one of those pesky Lotus' got by me, or we would have finished 5th. My best lap for the race was a 1:57.2. On a sad note- it looks like someone pinched my bag with my GoPros in it on Sunday so I may not have any video from the 02 to show of the race. I'm checking with SVRA to see if someone turned it in as lost. Hopefully there are still some honest folks out there and it will turn up. If it doesn't the video from the weekend will only have my CSL in it.
  4. Just got back from the VARA High Desert Challenge: Car was FAST, but luck went the other way for us this weekendTeam kicked ass, turned the best lap time but Sam had to start at the back of the pack. In qualifying Saturday the #49 510 spun after the RX3 blew up his diff and oiled down the track. Rolled back and hit our car...Sam followed the rules and came into Black Flag. (The 510 was Black Flagged after the shit show and finally came in) The second place car started on pole even though he spun under a yellow during qualifying and corner workers missed it! Going to paint next week. Next TABS2.5 Challenge race is the VARA British Extravaganza at Buttonwilllow Race Track May 4th, 5th and 6th, to continue our quest to BEAT the 510’s in the 50th year of theBMW 2002! All02 folks welcome to stop by for Beer/BBQ and watch the race Mark
  5. I didn't see another post on this, (apologies if already mentioned here). BAT auction, Terry Sather race car, class winner, get in and go, right now less expensive than building your own. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1976-bmw-2002-57/
  6. I am looking for some help or leads to get my 2002 transported from the BMWCCA Foundation Museum down and back to Road Atlanta for The Mitty next month (April 27-29). PM me or reply and I'll PM you. Thanks in advance!
  7. We ran the HMSA Spring event at Laguna Seca last weekend. I took my new M3 along with the might K2002. The Car had a new engine for this season. It was built by Ivey Engines in Portland. The Tinney engine we had in the car for the last 4 seasons was due for a refresh so it has been shipped back to Terry. The performance of the two engines seemed pretty similar. The only thing I noticed was the Ivey engine had a flatter torque curve, and a little bit wider power band. As this was my first outing with the M3 I took my time getting to know the car. It ran well all weekend, and I finished 5th behind 3 "P" GT3 Cup cars (vintage?), and a 1990 Olds GTO car. My best lap was a 1:40. The Koepchen car ran in Group 4 along with about 16 assorted Alfas, Porsches, MGs, a 510 Datsun, and Dennis Racine's wickedly fast Mini. It started raining as we sat on pre-grid for our qualifying race on Saturday. I was gridded 4th behind the Mini, and I expected him to sail off into the distance on the wet track. Instead the Datsun got out to a lead. He was the only car on rain tires. The Mini slotted in 2nd, and I was 3rd. I chased the Mini hard and got a run on him a couple of times but he made the car pretty wide and kept me back. Finally on the last lap I got inside him coming off Turn 11, found traction there I hadn't expected and out dragged him to the finish. For our feature race on Sunday it was sunny and warm. I started outside the first row. The 510 and I had a drag race down to Turn 2 and I was able to out brake him and get along side him going through the turn. As we came off Turn 2 I got a bit of a jump and pulled into the lead. He chased me hard down to Turn 5 where he downshifted to 3rd but got 1st. OUCH! He slithered sideways a couple fo times and I opened a gap that I never gave up. Best lap for Sunday was a 1:49.7. The best I have ever done at Laguna Seca. I'll have the video up in a few days. It was a great weekend, and the K2002 really performed well. Thank you Jim & terry @ Racecraft!! View full article
  8. Fastest 2002 in the West Coast TABS2.5 Challenge VARA opener: Driver Sam Smith smoked the field!
  9. We went down for the SVRA Nationals last weekend at COTA outside Austin, TX and competed in the B Sedan race. It was a knock-down, drag-out affair with the top 4 cars finishing within 2.5 seconds of each other. I'll provide the following picture of us entering Turn 3 to show how close it was for the entire race. You'll have to wait for the video to see the outcome. Stay Tuned!
  10. lets get this party started.... I know Markmac has his awesome site..but its offsite... .lets do this onsite.. and I feel the history of the 02 in Motorsports is often overlooked.. so lets add to this thread over and over.....waddyasay?
  11. I reported after the Pre-reunion races down in Monterey that we had blown the motor in my Luigi CSL. That disappointment had a silver lining. Here's the story: https://youtu.be/rHnnBTVXmyY
  12. A short video clip from the race weekend; shot from a BMW 2002 race car, shows a vintage Porsche 911, an E30 M3 and a later-model hot-rod Porsche (930, I think) at the start. I chose an early exit due to missed-shift over-rev at the start, which was the beginning of the end of the clutch*. https://www.youtube.com/embed/RKp04RLl0tY Neat story: I had arranged a purchase of a spare gearbox with member "Roundeie" which he was going to drop off at the track. He came, I ended up needing the box this weekend and installed it along with an old spare clutch and clutch disc*. Thanks a bunch, Ben. (*By Sunday - the day of this race - the clutch was failing ... I saved it for the points race, it lasted 2 laps ... I then had a quick lesson in no-clutch shifting (that's another video, later)).
  13. Thought I'd share. How fun it is. And the taiga is doing ok, I'll stop fiddling with it for now. It's far from a race car, but good enough for doing this a couple of times per year.
  14. Hoping some of the race car folks can help me here. I am working on multiple systems on the car simultaneously and decided that the brake system is something that shouldn't be too brutal to handle (and yet supremely important) Front brake calipers are AP Lockheed aluminum 4 piston calipers, rears' are ATE Porsche 911s aluminum calipers. See link below for the pedal box and brake master cylinder. There is no booster of any sort on this system. http://www.alpinabmw2002.com/2012/10/alpina-2oo2-gr-2-pedal-box.html There is a single rectangular remote reservoir mounted to the fire wall (1974 bmw 520) that feeds the master cylinder. In looking over the photo's this weekend I noticed that there was another remote reservoir mounted up in the inside of the front left fender? The rear system utilizes a proportioning valve and e-brake, the rear system I figure is fed out of the master cylinder back to the proportioning valve and then back to the calipers.....but then I noticed another remote reservoir attached to the back bulkhead in a picture that feeds? Looks like it goes through the rear shelf and then to....? I went through my stockpile of stuff and found a total of four (4) remote reservoirs, no idea if the other one was installed or where. I didn't find similar mounting holes on the right side like I did on the left. Would each of those front calipers have its own individual reservoir? Lots of pics, but not enough, its tough when someone else takes your car a part and it shows up in 15 or so boxes. Fire away.... http://www.alpinabmw2002.com
  15. I know, I know- not exactly a 2002, but great grandpa. I raced my 1935 BMW 315 special in Group 1B. You may remember this car was a cover car for Roundel magazine 2 years ago. I had a terrific race with pair of 1930's vintage Bugattis, and a Studebaker Indy Special. There's lots of sliding on skinny tires, position swapping, and leaning out of open cockpit cars! Hope you enjoy it. Here's the link: https://youtu.be/Ud-EJdiTbG0
  16. Not that I really needed the motivation, after last weekend (Friday) and seeing all the iron at the Legends, Track, driving around Monterey Peninsula, gave me the juice I need to stick a fork in the project car. It has been a ridiculously long haul but - add in putting two through college, global recession, floods, earthquakes, zombie attacks.......yahtzee, I pulled my left fender out of the mold Monday and have started the fit up. The right side is done and ready to permanently attach. There is some work to do on this one - some gel coat patch, and then I will skim it - the plug this one was made off of was pretty good so not so much work. After conferring with a number of folks I respect quite a bit about body/paint, these are going to be attached with panel adhesive (not mechanical attachment = rivets, which I am told will really read through the paint with the constant battering of racing). The edges of the glass at the belt line trim, door jamb + other locations will have glass tape and epoxy put over the edge to hide as much cracking as possible. The bottom line is that not matter what you do, you will get cracks here and there where the glass bits are bonded onto the steel. I looked at the BMW NA cars and found some on them as well so it is clearly just part of the deal. Once these get attached the car will be ready to go out for metal work and body/paint. Ass End...

  17. We put our race car on the scales the other day to begin mounting a fuel cell. Total empty weight was 1970 lbs, but the cross and front to rear was way off. Didn't have time to trouble shoot (perhaps a spring came out of it's perch), however it got me thinking. Did any of you racers run into much trouble getting a 50/50 cross? Any special work you did like relocating the battery and or fuel cell? Thanks!
  18. I raced my 1968 2002TA car at the PNW Historics over the July 4th weekend. Sorry it took so long to get it edited. Here's the video:
  19. I am trying to locate Mark Lemmon M&N2002 owner of the Miller and Norburn 2002 #64. He has posted a few times on here. I own the Miller and Norburn 2002 #65. I purchased the car in Simpsonville S.C. last fall. I have little or no history on the car except it was owned by a Will Bonner and before that a Bo Lemmon. If anyone has info on how I can contact Mark or has any info on this car . I would greatly appreciate it. I do know it is a replica. Best regards Simon Robinson
  20. Wanted to go to the beach today since it's beautiful in California, but my GC parts came in Friday and I couldn't let them sit there. Waited about 3.5 weeks compared to their advertised 1 week turn around (I did ask for additional mods, but expected a 2 week time). But when they came in It was completely worth the wait. Will be finishing up the other side and will be back on the road within an hour!!!!
  21. Hello, I recently relocated to Cleveland and was hoping that someone could recommend a good independent mechanic. I'm looking at possibly purchasing a project car (1968 2002) that will need work to get it running. The car will be used in vintage racing - so a shop that has experience in vintage racing would be ideal. Thanks for the help! Kenny
  22. I ran the Koepchen 2002 last weekend at the SOVREN Spring Sprints in Seattle. What a glorious weekend! The weather was spectacular, the racing was great, and there was a bunch of 02's running. All told, there were 13 2002's racing. We had 12 in our group, and one lone 02 in Group 2. There were some surprises, but you'll have to wait until I get the video up to see what I mean. Here's a screen grab to wet your appetite. How about 2002's 4 wide down the main straight?
  23. I thought about buying this car 10 or so years ago, but already had my hands full of several projects. The prior owner is a great BMW mechanic / racer who used to race Hillclimb's with my dad. My father bought a BMW 2000 Tilux, that his chief mechanic had rolled end over end, and put all the parts into a BMW 1800, which became my first car. The first BMW 2002 racecar I ever saw in the sheet-metal belonged to him. It had sidedraft Weber carburetors, tisa seat for the driver, and was white with A orange stripe along the beltline. The owner later got and raced this originally Granada red BMW 1600. He subsequently gave the car to his nephew, an excellent guy, and I was recently able to see it again. Hopefully the car will make it back onto the track soon. It is a beautiful piece of history, intermingled with my own earliest days of BMW driving , before I even had a license. I absolutely loved looking at this car, drinking a beer, and thinking about its history and track time. It was a famously fast and good handling car. Who couldn't love those zender flares. Apparently WFO stands for wide effing open. All my best, Peter. Keep on over steering P. S. If any Brisbaniacs read this----------- please take lots of pictures at the show, and post them on the FAQ for those of us who aren't as lucky as you!
  24. Anyone here planning to attend? http://www.svra.com/2015-portland-vintage-racing-festival/ My annual excursion to a US event. I bought a 3 day pass which includes: 1 car in the corral, 2 people for 3 days, parade lap(s), heaps of races, a rock concert , fireworks. $45. Great price! It would be really cool to meet up with other 02s in the corral. Maybe bring stuff to trade? I did the Seattle event last year. It was a lot of fun. Heaps of vintage dd's, show cars, race cars, and really nice people. Some exciting 02 racing to watch as well. Hope some PNW guys will show. Help support local vintage racing and mostly 02 racing in the area. Cheers!
