A little about the car:
It is one of 4 cars built in late 1974 with IMSA specification. It ran Daytona, Sebring and Road Atlanta in 1975 with Hans Stuck and Sam Posy behind the wheel. In June of 1975 it returned to BMW Motorsport for use in the European Championship. It had wins at Nurburgring and Zandvoort. In 1976 th chassis was updated by BMW Motorsport to Group 5 specification for the new world championship. It came in 2nd in GT and 10th overall at the 1976 24 hours of Le Mans with Grohs/Posey/de Fierlant. 1st at Kyalami with Scheckter/Nilsson/Grohs. It was sold to Vasek Polak and only ran 2 more races, Laguna Seca 1977 and 1978 with Milt Minter driving.

The car was still in the Vasek Polak collection at the time of his death, was sold to Rug Cunningham and campaigned in vintage races 4 times before trading hands twice to the current owner from Melbourne Australia. The car
will be racing at this years Monterey Historic Automobile races August 12-15.
