Scottish BMW Championship 2017

The Scottish BMW Championship is for BMW Compact cars. It has grown in recent years and last season entries were at record levels. 

Some facts –

  • Race cars are based on the popular BMW 318ti Compact model (94 – 01), which is still relatively modern and freely available at very low cost
  • Huge availability of cheap new and second hand spares
  • Rear wheel drive
  • Race cars use completely standard engines (140bhp 16v), standard gearboxes and differentials (non LSD).
  • Cars can easily be kept road legal and driven to and from the circuit.
  • Very attractive looking car when prepared..... almost looks like a modern Touring Car.
  • With donor cars being so plentiful and cheap and the series using many tightly regulated "control" parts, cars can be built very economically.
