BMW Z3 Race Car

In 2010, the 750 Motor Club announced a new one-make series for the BMW Z3 2.8 Roadster. We bought a 90,000 mile road car to prepare and after enjoying it as a road car for a while, put it in the workshop and awaited final regulations for the following season. Unfortunately for whatever reason this did not develop and the championship did not get off the ground. This left us with a partially stripped BMW, and nowhere really it could race competitively without substantial investment.

Late in 2012 the 750 Motor Club announed a new initiative, to run 45 minute mini endurance races for 2 seater sports cars. Based on a class structure that allowed control over costs with a freedom to develop and innovate, the 750MC Roadsports Series offered an ideal opportunity to get the dust sheets off the Z3 and prepare it for racing.

Below is a brief pictorial summary of the preparation that is still ongoing as of early May 2013, with the first race just 2 weeks away at the time of writing this.

The intention is to keep this up to date with developments and race results as things progress. We have made sure everything is future-proof, so that the base car will always hold strong as it gets quicker and better developed.

One thought on “BMW Z3 Race Car

  1. Great to see your progress with this! My Britcar Z3 build isn’t too far behind you. Feel free to check out my development at http://www.asracingblog.com My plan this year is to fabricate my own suspension parts and composite body panels, so if you’re interested in a copy give me a shout!

    Cheers,

    Andy
