Last engine rebuild on 4/6/2001 – at that time it had been used for 38 day events for an estimated 38 hours on the engine. Since that time the car has been used for 19 day events for an estimated 19 hours. Last time on track was October 2007 – car has been stored in my garage since. I raced the last couple years by renting a production class racer in SCCA – I am 71 years young and was my own “chief mechanic” and driver for the years I raced the BMW. Sure is a lot easier to “arrive and drive”!
