  • BMW Team Schnitzer - Wellington Street Race Documentary, 1990.

    Hi Guys,

    This video link was posted on a NZ BMW Forum and it is all about the Schnitzer team when they raced in New Zealand in 1990, this is where I first saw the E30 M3 racing.

    http://www.nzonscreen.com/title/mona...ellington-1990

    The racing was excellent with all variety of racing and activities building up to the main race.

    Some places of the track you could get quite close to the racing cars and entry to the pits was open for the public. There is nothing like hearing the 4 cylinder race cars at full rpm and the Serra Cosworth turbo blow off squelching up close.

    Dave.

                I remember going to that race, I thought the Schnitzer team had no real chance, but the opposition kept dropping like flies! The Soper/Giroix car sounded terrible with the misfire, and was dropping several seconds a lap, but still managed second place somehow. BTW, the 1992 "Castrol" car in your post is on its way to NZ!

                              Usually the device below would copy the video onto your PC
                              https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefo...ownloadhelper/

                              But those videos are encapsuled in a Flash shell and cannot be downloaded
