  • Rally car

    Hello every one,
    Iím a new member of this great forum.
    I thought Iíd let you all know about my M3.
    EX Italian Grp N Rally which I have completely rebuilt.
    Its current spec is,
    Stock Motor running CF air box, 2 BMW motorsport management systems, which has yet
    to be Set up.
    Grp A 6 speed Prodrive dogbox 5.1 rear diff + coolers.
    Grp A suspension.
    Prodrive Side exit exhaust, bag tank in wheel well.
    Converted to Right hand drive.
    Prodrive Quick Rack.
    Link shows car in workshop during rebuild.
    1st run last Saturday at a rally sprint came in 8th overall.
    More photos will be posted shortly.
    I rally this car in Ireland which has some of the bumpiest twisty tarmac in Europe.
    Other car is a full works Grp A car which my friend from Newyork Rallys in Ireland.gallery

          I found that as I only drive it on rallys left hand drive was holding me back.
          Driving at ten tenths down a narrow bumpy road every little bit helps.
          We recon that the conversion will make up about 20 to 30 seconds a stage advantage.
          Also as you know we drive on the left in Ireland.
          My road car 325 sport is also right hand drive.

              They made a small number of right hand drive cars for BMW for Rallying.
              It uses a E21 case.
              They can no longer be got, to have one made now a day costs £650.00
              2 and 1/2 turns lock to lock just what you need in a M3.

                Declan,

                why did you miss the Sligo stage rally last weekend. I live in chicago and was Ireland for the week and attended the rally. I saw you registered for the event, but you never showed up for scrutineering. What happened?

                    Silgo rally

                    As you can see in the photo we did a major rebuild on the car and we just didnít
                    have it finished in time.
                    Although I had it running we never got any testing done.
                    The gear box let go twice in the week leading up to the rally, and we needed a run on
                    the rolling road as there is a major flat spot @ 4 thousand RPM.
                    I went to a race track ( sprint ) that week end for a test didn't do to bad with coming in 8th overall despite all the faults.
                    I hope you enjoyed the rally, some big stuff up at the front ( WRCS ).
                    What did you think of the rally?
