HistoryOriginal built as chassis number E36 STC 96/003 and run by Schnitzer Motorsport for Joachim Winkelhock in the 1996 British Touring Car Championship and Macau Grand Prix. The car was crashed heavily at the start of the second Macau race causing extensive chassis damage. Over the winter of 96/97 the car the car was rebuilt by BMW Motorsport, during which time it received a new out-of-sequence chassis number.
In 1997 and 1998 the car served as a spare chassis for Team Isert in the SuperTourenwagen Cup.
The car was eventually sold to GDL Racing and re-assembled back in to a complete vehicle and used in the 2001 FIA European Super Touring Championship by Moreno Soli and Nelson Clemente.
Used by Goran Asanovic in the 2003 Serbian Touring Car Championship. Sold the following year to Zoran Timotić, who again used it in the Serbian Championship.
In 2005 the car was part of an exchange deal - Milovan Vesnić took over the BMW, whilst Timotić gained Vesnić's Opel Vectra.
In 2006 the car was yet again part of an exchange deal with Vesnić trading the BMW for Patrick Ulrich's Vectra.
Following a complete rebuild, Ulrich has used the car for various hillclimbs and Swiss championship races.
