Beautiful.

Sadly, they don't make BMWs like that anymore.

Here's Bill Auberlen flipping it at Road Atlanta. My friend and I were standing along the fence when this happened, he literally flew right past us.

It's a shame BMW barely races professionally anymore. All their new models have lost a lot of that driving which the predecessors had naturally in spades. Wonder why....

I saw the BMW LMR race at Laguna back in the late 90's … wow … what a great time for sports car racing!!!

http://www.speedhunters.com/2009/09/...saloon_part_1/

The Panoz was easily the crowd favourite … here is an example



Below are some of the other great 'Le Mans cars' of the era

Epic Era Epic Cars

This is BMW in its element. Epic engine designed by a legendary engine guru and a chassis designed by an F1 team. That was something. Times are changing now but I hope that somehow with their return to LM and possibley other series that we will something special like this in the future.

I do agree that the 90's were a great time for sports car racing. These are my personal favorites in addition to the BMW V12 LMR and McLaren F1 LM and GTR


Peugeot 905:





Toyota TS010:



Jaguar XJR-14





Jaguar XJR-12





Have fun & turn up your speakers
