Current owner since 1996. Purchased from 2nd owner with approx. 42,500 miles.

In 2002, car converted to full race spec for BMW CCA Club racing in DMod class.
Cage by Wes McReynolds former cage builder for Korman. Interior stripped, door windows removed, racing seats and harnesses, fire suppression system, larger (66L) fuel tank to avoid starvation.
Ran in DMod for 4 years, finished first in class 5 or 6 times, usually finished in top three. After 4 years, and a failed S14, decided to leave Club Racing, go back to instructing.
