Endurance Spec BMW M3 Evo 3.2
GTS Motorsport built BMW M3 Evo Race Car
Ex John Cowgill and Callum Lockie multiple Race winning car
This is a hugely successful and respected race car. I stress this is not a road car adapted for the track, this car was hand built by respected race engineers GTS for John Cowgill and Callum Lockie and is the sister car to the well known and hugely respected car run by Harry Handkammer and David Leslie at the time. Originally finished in Estoril Blue in Shopkit livery the car was colour changed to white in 2006 and was subject to an extensive rebuild at the same time.
A Historic race car in the making, this BMW is an extremely capable endurance car and has competed in the 24 hours of Nurburg, the Silverstone 24 hour race on several occasions with class wins and placements many times over. Have a quick look at the links below which are just a few of the numerous write ups and reviews on line.
Then owned and run by Robert Day and Paul Phipps in the Britcar race series they successfully contested the car in group N category for a number of years until previous owners bought it from them some three years ago. Since then, the car was used the car for track and test days only. It is a beautifully set up vehicle having been professionally maintained throughout its life.
