HistoryBuilt by Vic Lee Motorsport in the 1992 British Touring Car Championship. Driven by Steve Soper for all except the final round where it was driven by Tim Harvey - the two swapped cars when Harvey's regular car was damaged in pre-event testing.
Purchased by Team Dynamics and driven at the opening round of the 1993 British Touring Car Championship by Alex Portman before handing the car over to Ray Bellm. Bellm would race for the remainder of first half of the season, although he would be replaced by Andy Wallace in a one-off drive at Oulton Park. Dynamics would run the car for musician Chris Rea at the end-of-season TOCA Shootout
In 1994 the car was driven by British Touring Car Championship by Geoff Steel having been converted to Right Hand Drive.
In 1995 the car was sold to Paul Pickett, who raced it in the 1995 Australian Super Touring Championship.
For 1996 Pickett switched to the Hyundai but his team continued to run the car for Paul Sarlas and John Henderson.
Purchased by Chris Oxley in 1997.
It should be noted that whilst we refer to the car as 'VLM E36-002', that is not the original chassis number. The sister car caries a hand stamped 'VLM E36-001' on the bulkhead, so we have continued that numbering. The 3 shells supplied by BMW were E36/1 002 91, E36/1 008 92 and E36/1 017 92 but it's believed that VLM removed the original chassis plates so there is no way of confirming which is the correct number for this car.
