  1. Hi All. These are the correct latches as used on competition BMWs in the late 60s and early 70s. GHE is OEM supplier for these latches as used on car below (photo @2018 The Schwab Collection). See illustration for sizes. 4 latches (2 front and 2 rear) sold as a complete set for $105 including shipping in the United States. $125 shipped to Europe.
  2. Racing vintage cars in Colorado got more interesting last year. Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing has an event in Aspen Snowmass. It is at the foot of the ski resort racing through the streets of Snowmass Village. This year we had 8 BMW 02s and a TiSA. The course is very busy, with 17 corners and a steep 8% grade section in a 1.3 mile loop. The event was two days of racing with a car show. Whats not to like about going on vacation to one of the best places in Colorado, at one of the best times of the year, stay in a really nice hotel 100 ft from the race paddock. There is nothing else like this event anywhere. I posted video in the video section and here is a selection of pictures from photographer Jay Bonvouloir of just the BMW highlights.. He has more pictures. Enjoy. Here is some video of the circuit - mostly BMW 02s View full article
  3. Snowmass street race - BMW 02 battle - best race Name: Snowmass street race - BMW 02 battle - best race Category: Racing From the RMVR Aspen Snowmass Vintage Race 2018, big/mid bore group race #3, through the streets of Snowmass Village. One camera on Scott Stekr's #328 02 and one on my #202 02 with the video switching between the two for who is following. It was a great race.... enjoy. Supper awesome racing in Snowmass, still can't believe they let us do it.

  5. Last weekend we travelled across the country to participate in the 2018 Classic Motorsports ‘The Mitty’ races held on the beautiful Road Atlanta circuit just north of Atlanta, Georgia. This is perhaps the biggest vintage race on the east coast with over 300 entries. The featured marque for this year’s race was Nissan/Datsun so the paddock was full of 510’s and Z cars. My 2002 was the token German in our paddock, which was also home to the cars of John Morton, the Grand Marshal for the event, and Adam Carolla. Our weekend began on Thursday with the red-eye flight from Po
  6. Introduction: The following is a very basic listing of what constitutes a true racing suspension for a trackworthy 2002. Be aware that different sanctioning bodies will require different setups, so check your rule books! Or, don't and just race against yourself! Front Suspension: Adjustable height coil over for standard 2.5”ID racing springs Springs – 400 to 425 lb/inch x 7” Shorten struts approximately 2” Shocks – special shorter body (VW Rabbit) Bilsteins Bend struts 1 to 1.5 degrees for maximum camber adjustment Adjustable racing camber plates with solidly-mounted spherical bearings
  7. For racers and wannabes... you won't find cheaper track time than this. $150 for three, 20 minute sessions? Too bad COTA doesn't participate. :( http://autoweek.com/article/other-motorsports/scca-track-night-america-flat-out-150 Here's the SCCA link to each event: https://www.tracknightinamerica.com/events 9 Things you need to know about Track Night... it's so easy... http://autoweek.com/article/other-motorsports/9-things-you-need-know-about-scca-track-night-america Ed ....not sure why the links are not attaching correctly. Copy and paste for now, folks...
  8. By now many have seen this, but here it is again. Porsche 919 buries the old lap record at the Nordschleife. 5 mins 19 seconds.... I think one of the video commentors did the math at an average speed of 145mph.... holy monkeys. The rates of acceleration/deceleration are almost unreal. To think a 4 door Neue Klasse ran the lap for a touring car record of 9:58 in 1966... Full screen and volume up... Here's a nice writeup on what Porsche did to this car to help it accomplish such a feat. The driver? Nerves of steel... http://autoweek.com/article/racing/porsches-liberated-919-lmp1-beats-f1-lap-record-around-spa-francorchamps Enjoy, Ed
  9. I just pulled these seats out of one of my project cars. The car has been in storage since the early 80's. They came out of a '68 Firebird. The seats are in close to mint condition. They just need to be wiped down. The headrest's are removable and they also have slots for a 5 point harness. Very light weight also. Price is slightly negotiable. Local pick up preferred. I am asking $600 for the set or best offer. I just pulled one seat to take pictures but the passenger seat is mint as well. Thanks for looking!!! Seats are located in Seaford,NY 11783
  10. Last weekend we travelled across the country to participate in the 2018 Classic Motorsports ‘The Mitty’ races held on the beautiful Road Atlanta circuit just north of Atlanta, Georgia. This is perhaps the biggest vintage race on the east coast with over 300 entries. The featured marque for this year’s race was Nissan/Datsun so the paddock was full of 510’s and Z cars. My 2002 was the token German in our paddock, which was also home to the cars of John Morton, the Grand Marshal for the event, and Adam Carolla. Our weekend began on Thursday with the red-eye flight from Portland to Atlanta. With only 4 hours of troubled sleep our next challenge was morning rush hour traffic up I-85 through the heart of Atlanta. YUK! We had been invited to visit the BMWCCA Foundation Museum which is located across the street from BMW’s mega-plant outside Greenville, SC. The museum is preparing to open their new exhibit called “The Icon,” to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the 2002. My car was invited to participate in the exhibit. I had shipped it back to SC a month or so ago and was excited to break it out for the weekend to go racing. I found a local race-prep shop, Vintage Racing Co., to transport the car from the museum to the track and to do a race prep on the car. The owner, Michael Eberhardt, was incredibly helpful and competent. Our visit to the museum was great. We met the curator, Michael Mitchell, who is responsible for putting the exhibit together, as well as Scott Dishman, the Director of the Foundation, and Jackie Bechek, who is on the Board of the Foundation. We toured the facility and saw how the exhibit is coming together. There are 24 other significant 2002’s being readied and set in place for the exhibit. Around the outside are photo’s, paintings, dealer signs, and a wide array of memorabilia associated with the development, manufacture, and introduction of the 2002. The exhibit is scheduled to open on May 18, 2018. Following the tour we were taken across the street to have lunch at the Performance Driving Center. Our lunch included a quick tour of the school and a ride around the track in a M2 with Mike Renner. It was time to head back down to the track and get registered for the weekend and find our car in the Road Atlanta paddock. Because of the huge number of entries HSR was utilizing both paddock areas at the track. The Racecraft truck was located in the Pro paddock on the inside of the Start/Finish straight. Thursday morning began at 7:20 AM with a quick driver’s meeting. Since I have never driven Road Atlanta I had signed up for the Track Orientation Program. This program, run by Jim Davis, started with a van tour of the track. Jim talked us through car placement, turn-in points, landmarks, and a host of other helpful information. Following the van ride the TOP group had their own test session on track. Jim’s tour was very helpful, but there is nothing like logging laps in your own car to learn a new circuit. Road Atlanta has several blind turns, most notably Turn 11. You approach the turn from one side of a steep hill, and then crest the hill and turn while passing under a bridge. The back side drops steeply while still turning down to the very fast Turn 12. On my first lap I followed another BMW that drove straight off the track his first time through Turn 11. I almost followed him, but was going slowly enough to turn and stay on track. Believe me, television does not show how steeply the track drops as you plunge down to Turn 12. On Friday our group had 2 practice sessions. My lap times got better each session as I gained confidence and familiarity with the track. My best lap in the first session was a 1:50.7, and 1:48.8 for the second session. In the afternoon they put several groups together for a sprint race sponsored by Sasco Sports. It was a large group of over 50 cars, and I started 31st. The race was only 8 laps and with that many cars on track it was very hectic the entire race. I managed to pass a few cars and finish 28th with a best lap of 1:47.9. I will say that the racing is more aggressive than we have on the west coast. I had a Porsche dive bomb me turning into turn 3 several times, as well as a few cars that blocked as I was trying to pass them, even on the straights. On Saturday we had one Qualifying session in the morning and a sprint race in the afternoon. I was able to get my lap time down to 1:47.0 in the morning session which put me 32nd on the grid out of 44 cars. I was happy that my times were still improving, but not so happy to be buried so deeply in our group. The race went better than I thought. I passed 6 cars in the first couple of laps, but got blocked by a lapper on the last lap and finished 28th with a best lap of 1:46.8. Considering the higher afternoon temperatures and some grease on the track from all the cars running, I was pretty happy with that. We only had our feature race on Sunday. Several cars in our group either broke or left early so we had 21 cars take the green flag. I started 13th and again passed several cars in the opening laps. After 4 laps I found myself right behind Jim Froula in his 240Z and was able to stay with him until the checkered flag for a 9th place finish, and a best lap of 1:45.6. Both Mary and I really enjoyed the weekend and our time in the Atlanta area. The people were warm and friendly, the weather was perfect, and the BBQ was spectacular. Road Atlanta has been on my list of tracks that I wanted to drive. It is fast, technical, and intimidating. It rewards lots of laps and familiarity. The best part of the weekend was the fact that #34 worked flawlessly all weekend, and was driven onto the truck on Sunday night with no issues. He will get a well deserved rest in the BMWCCA museum until next January. I want to thank Scott Dishman and Michael Mitchell at the BMWCCA Foundation Museum; Michael Eberhardt from Vintage Racing Co.; and Jim and Austin from Racecraft. View full article
  11. Last weekend we travelled across the country to participate in the 2018 Classic Motorsports ‘The Mitty’ races held on the beautiful Road Atlanta circuit just north of Atlanta, Georgia. This is perhaps the biggest vintage race on the east coast with over 300 entries. The featured marque for this year’s race was Nissan/Datsun so the paddock was full of 510’s and Z cars. My 2002 was the token German in our paddock, which was also home to the cars of John Morton, the Grand Marshal for the event, and Adam Carolla. Our weekend began on Thursday with the red-eye flight from Portland to Atlanta. With only 4 hours of troubled sleep our next challenge was morning rush hour traffic up I-85 through the heart of Atlanta. YUK! We had been invited to visit the BMWCCA Foundation Museum which is located across the street from BMW’s mega-plant outside Greenville, SC. The museum is preparing to open their new exhibit called “The Icon,” to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the 2002. My car was invited to participate in the exhibit. I had shipped it back to SC a month or so ago and was excited to break it out for the weekend to go racing. I found a local race-prep shop, Vintage Racing Co., to transport the car from the museum to the track and to do a race prep on the car. The owner, Michael Eberhardt, was incredibly helpful and competent. Our visit to the museum was great. We met the curator, Michael Mitchell, who is responsible for putting the exhibit together, as well as Scott Dishman, the Director of the Foundation, and Jackie Bechek, who is on the Board of the Foundation. We toured the facility and saw how the exhibit is coming together. There are 24 other significant 2002’s being readied and set in place for the exhibit. Around the outside are photo’s, paintings, dealer signs, and a wide array of memorabilia associated with the development, manufacture, and introduction of the 2002. The exhibit is scheduled to open on May 18, 2018. Following the tour we were taken across the street to have lunch at the Performance Driving Center. Our lunch included a quick tour of the school and a ride around the track in a M2 with Mike Renner. It was time to head back down to the track and get registered for the weekend and find our car in the Road Atlanta paddock.

  12. Along with BMWs and MBs my father's dealership sold NSUs. So when I started racing he suggested I find the holy grail of NSUs, a 1200 TTS. I found one for sale in NJ and went with my friend Peter P. to collect it and bring it back to MN. I ran it in a few auto crosses in the fall, setting several FTDs, and then raced it on the Ice in the IIRA series in 1969 and 1970. I never got a chance to race it on a track because I sold it and bought a Mazda RX2 to race in 1972. The question of how well these cars go has always rattled around in the back of my empty skull, so I decided to take steps to find out before I was too old to care. Here are some pictures of my latest acquisition. It is a 1970 1200 TTS. It has a OH cam 4 cylinder air cooled engine, sitting on a 4 speed transmission. And no, I will not be doing any bump drafting with that oil cooler hanging out there. I found the car in the Netherlands, and it is on its way via ship to Seattle. No Corvair jokes please. Stay tuned for a full report!

  14. So, a whole bunch of good things are coming together for me here this summer, primarily our move to Georgia where we'll end up a very short 20 min away from Road Atlanta! As such, I'm thinking about getting into racing a bit more. I'm still 'green' but not entirely new either; I've done several autox events, mostly with the CCA at the performance center, a few beginner HDPEs, and am one of several drivers for a Chumpcar team. No solo license yet but plan to get that over the next year or so. Here's my questions for the community here: 1.) What sort or training regiment would you recommend? Just track days here and there to build up hours, or something more formalized? I see that Road Atlanta has a Skip Barber school, for example, though I've always wondered if you really got your money's worth at those. 2.) For a car, I like driving the 2002 at HDPEs, but don't think I'm willing to put it in a wheel-to-wheel environment and I don't want to put a cage in it either, so I'm considering a more dedicated track (but still street-legal) car at this point. I think an E30 would be the obvious choice, but I'm certainly open to opinions. And as far as E30s go, 318 vis 325? One important point is I want to keep things at 1993 an older to avoid Gwinnett county's pain-in-the-dick emissions testing! 3.) Any other ideas/advice you'd care to offer, I'm all ears and interested in being educated at this point before I start dropping real money! Thanks all!
  15. Hello fellow 02ers, I have been searching all around the 2002FAQ for info on where to get racing decals but haven't had any luck. Does anyone know where its possible to purchase custom racing number decals? Heres a photo for reference. Trying to find where to buy a decal similar to the 59 decal on this car. Thanks !!

  17. Not an M10, not possible in an M10, but who cares, this is definitely bat Sh!t crazy driving. (He waves at a spectator in a curve while shifting!, yeah bat Sh!t crazy driving!)
  18. 2019 RAKC High Plains Raceway with RMVR - race #1 Name: 2019 RAKC High Plains Raceway with RMVR - race #1 Category: Racing 2019 RMVR Charity race. Big/Mid Bore group, race #1. 33 car grid and I chose to start in the back. Lots of different cars, including a CSL clone (my friend Brian - first race with new build). Good fun with lots of passing in the first couple of laps. Enjoy
  19. Photos of the latest race car build just-before it loaded onto the transporter. (Many thanks to Mike for coming down to shoot these fine photos; a portfolio of his fine work can be found at http://www.mikevillavisuals.com ). A day after the car reached its destination, it was decked-out in a Warsteiner tribute livery). Perhaps in 2017 I'll get back to that coast and race with and against it. -KB
  20. Who's going? We will be there from Thursday night (1/26) to Tuesday night (1/31). We got an Air bnb 3 miles from the track really close to the beach.
  21. Anybody going to Summit Point this weekend? We'll be headed over in the morning. Probably get there around 10 or so. It was a great turn out last year. Pete
  22. Interest in vehicles starts at a young age. Ideally this interest will continue... Regards Bill trim.A513C249-8759-4C0E-9D86-4B287AFB83F2.MOV
  23. Hi Gang, Been ages since I have been on. Wanted to share some photos of my car and seek help and wisdom of the group. My race car has a neat history. It was the first BMW sold in 1970 new in Alberta, there was no dealership so it was special ordered through a european specialist. It was sold to an Austrian Doctor living in Alberta who had just watched Nikki Lauda Race 3 BMWs in a single weekend at the Salsburgring and win all 3 races (1602, 2002 and 2800 or 3.0) he was sold....he wanted to start racing cars and it had to be a BMW. Thus was the start of the race car's history, never registered for road use it has been a race car since day 1. It started in B Sedan racing at local tracks and ultimately in 1973 it raced u2 in the trans Am race in Edmonton. Starting 25th it finished a respectable 2nd in u2 and 11th overall. The winner of that race was Greenwood, but names such as Peter Gregg, Al Hobert, Ludwig Heimrath were also there. I was told that back then the only guy with a decent car hauler was Penske, even the McLerans showed up on a flat bed. The quad headlamps were needed during and enduro This was how it looked in the first few seasons with bolt on flares and eyeballs on the headlights. The driver of the 1973 Trans Am race confirmed to me this was how it looked, in a conversation this week. Lucky I was able to track him down and he is still with us. Blanked off lights and integrated flares. He doesn't remember what the script on the door said and is looking for a better image. Current livery and GT spec bodywork After that the car has been raced by enthusiasts like myself. Being constantly updated and improved. RaceSkiBmw (Jeff R) who was the previous owner to me did a ton of work turning the car into a GT contender. When the HAT Wurth Liveried e21/m12 car made a stop in Calgary, when the owner of HAT relocated his family from Germany to Calgary in 1970's many of the cast off spare parts (which had become obsolete on account of series updates) made their way onto that car. I raced the car in 2008-2010 in WCMA GT3 and finished 2nd, twice. A modern Acura racer remarked "I never thought the most reliable car in the series would be a 40 year old BMW". One year the only reason I lost the championship was that I completed 2 less races than the winner, due to budget and time. The car has had many evolutions over time. From BSedan to U2 to IT to GT racer. As the aero on modern cars has gotten so good and the GT grids have dwindled due to SIR rules and cost concerns the car is likely not to be competitive in GT anymore. Given I already have another race car (s54 powered e30 m3) I am thinking of returning the car to as raced configuration in 1973 and keep the car for vintage racing. Of course the Schnitzer 8v motor and Alpina dry sump now live in a california based racer - but I have the parts to configure a strong 2.0 with carbs. Interesting is the concept of brining the car full circle, back to how it raced, after all the "developments". Can anyone comment on these flares? I suspect they were home made, but curious if anyone has seen something similar? Thanks for the interest and help! Anthony Calgary, AB [email protected]
