Default 1997 318TI Racecar for sale

1997 BMW 318TI
2011 3rd place podium finisher at NASA Nationals
2011 NASA Greatlakes GTS1 Regional Champion

I have the title for this car even though it isnít street legal. This car is very easy to drive. It is very forgiving and very rewarding. Iíve had this car for 10 years. This car has a NASA logbook and has run in GTS1 and GTS2. It is currently setup for PTE. It has been fully updated this spring, and has been on track this year. It has been updated with fresh belts/safety equipment

This car is race ready!

Tow hooks
Autometer gauges (tach, fuel level, water temp)
Custom wired with military grade connectors and waterproof fuse box
Dry cell lightweight battery
Lexan Windshield

Mark McMahon TIG welded 8 point cage with NASCAR door bars. This is a beautiful cage that fits perfectly. Youíll be hard pressed to find a cage built with better craftsmanship.

This setup is good for PTE or GTS1 in it's current form.....or swap a M5X into it and run GTS 2/3/4.

I also have an enclosed trailer that I would sell as a package if interested.

The car is located in southeast Michigan

Hosting a forum like this is not free. 318ti.org is one of the best BMW forums on the web because it is member supported, not vendor supported. The cost to become a Supporter is a nominal $10.00... A YEAR! DO IT! NOW!

On my wish list! Unfortunately, I suffer from the same problems as most racers: Lack of funding! Good luck with the sale & keep us posted as to where it ends up. Would love to see that tooling around the Glen sometime!
