E92 M3 GT3 race car build project

Hi all, customer of ours referred me here and thought you might be interested in an E92 GT3 race car project of ours?

Not sure on weight until final stages, but sub 1200kg (2600 lb) is the plan. Our E46 race cars weigh in at 1100kg's. Plan is for carbon bonnet, boot, doors and front bumper (all done). Currently mulling over what ECU/loom/control systems and wheels. Car is primarily being built for CSL Cup (www.cslcup.com) but also run it in Britcar and 24hr Silverstone race as well as British GT (hence the GT3 build spec).

Engine and loom all go back in next week along with new carbon bodywork ready for the Autosport show in the UK in January. I'll post up updates if anyone is interested?


Here are a few pictures so far:

Donor car was 34k, all up it should come in at around 85k.

THere are a load of other pics of the build on our site here:

The technical regs look fairly easy to navigate, very cool series.
