This car won its class every weekend over the last two years driving it to and from the track. In addition to class wins, one overall win and several overall podiums. Best laps: Sebring (2:33.5), Homestead (1:44.9), Mid-Ohio (1:44.4 with chicane), Putnam (1:20.3). The car is very streetable and I frequently drive it to work. It is only converted to track form for race weekends. The stock seat comes out and the racing seat, seat-brace, and window net goes in. The side roll-cage bar is removable so it is easier to get in and out when driving on the street. Static cling numbers and stickers are even removable/reusable. The custom Bilsteins are valved for good track performance, but also street tolerable. The LTW replica wing comes with it, but is not legal this year in I-Stock BMWCCA (they are discussing allowing it again next year). For PBOC, it currently runs in R6 class, but could lose some weight and still be legal in R6, the LTW wing is legal in R6. The entire interior is inplace and looks like a show car (at least compared to racecars), all the stock features are operable including the AC (it is great staying cool in the paddock while everybody else is burning up). This is the perfect car for club racing. You can do very well without the additional expense of a tow vehicle and trailer.
