BMW Compact Cup Car
New BMW Compact Cup Car.
Having decided that this was the championship for me, I searched without any luck for a sound and competitive car. There were plenty of cars about but I was unable to find a car that would enable me to challenge for the championship and meet my standards of preparation and presentation. Fortunately, after several months of searching I was introduced Stuart Wright who was clearly very professional and was in the process of building a car based on a very mint shell which had just had a full re-spray, Dakar yellow. After some considerable persuasion he agreed that he would complete his car for me with no expense being spared and from mainly new parts. The result is a very competitive and beatify finished challenger.
It was taken to Brands Hatch to shake it down were a small oil leak was detected but was diagnosed to be a small pinched “O” ring. This was easily replaced and the car was run again, faultlessly, at Snetterton. The car was then taken to Stuart’s workshop where it was fully spanner checked and is now ready to be raced. We have also put together a comprehensive spares package, again mainly consisting of new parts and included in which is an untouched engine that has only covered 80,000 miles and the required video cam.
Out of the blue I have been offered a drive in an historic sports car. I am tempted to keep the BMW but the dates will clash. This is therefore a Golden opportunity to acquire an, an as new car, that has been professionally built using the correct parts and has never been raced. Most importantly it is legal. The entire package is offered at £12,000 or without the spares Package for £10,000. I will consider PX with cash either way.
