HistoryBuilt in Aug 1993 as the first E36 built to 1994 Class 2 specifications. Early history is unknown although it is likely to have spent most of it's time at BMW Motorsport / Team Warthofer as a development chassis.
Acquired by Colin Gallie in 1997 and run in the British Touring Car Championship by Dave Cook Racing Services (DCRS). The car would initially run with 1994-spec sills and rear bumper with 1996-spec aero; eventually gaining full 1997-spec aero for the penultimate round of the year at Brands Hatch.
Sold to Niklas Danielsson in 1998, who raced it in the Swedish Touring Car Championship under the Ikegami Motorsport.
The following year the car was acquired by Fredrik Nilsson, and fitted with a 2.4-litre Volvo engine by Köhler Racing. Nilsson would run the car with much success in the Swedish Etab Data Cup, winning the series in 1999 and 2000.
The car then moved to Norway with Per Henrik Skjolden running in selected rounds of the Norwegian Special Saloons series.
Purchased by Joachim Karlsen in June 2009, and driven in a number of Norwegian GT races in 2010.
In early 2013 the car was re-fitted with the correct BMW engine, although remained largely unused after that. In April 2020 the car was moved to JEMS Race Engineering for restoration in preparation for sale.
