BMW M3 Cup Car
2003 E46 M3 Race Car, which was refreshed for 2017 Season and has had light track day use since.
The car was road legal and had an MOT until the catalytic converters were removed in 2017 and a full racing exhaust was fitted. If cats were refitted it could be MOT’d again.
The car was eligible for 750 Motor Club M3 Cup, Club Enduro, Roadsports & CSCC New Millennium Series in 2017. I understand the regulations have now changed, however, and the roll cage will require some modification to make the car eligible now.
