BMW Seattle has been most generous not only by providing the trophies but also donating two raffle items:
Griots Garage will be onsite as our car care sponsor and will be providing free samples for all registered participants and two raffle items as well
Brecus Motorsports will be onsite with product coupons and raffling off a Short Shift Kit.
One of our club members is bringing a 1975 Factory Group 5 CSL to display at the concours. What will you be bringing?
A little about the car:
It is one of 4 cars built in late 1974 with IMSA specification. It ran Daytona, Sebring and Road Atlanta in 1975 with Hans Stuck and Sam Posy behind the wheel. In June of 1975 it returned to BMW Motorsport for use in the European Championship. It had wins at Nurburgring and Zandvoort. In 1976 th chassis was updated by BMW Motorsport to Group 5 specification for the new world championship. It came in 2nd in GT and 10th overall at the 1976 24 hours of Le Mans with Grohs/Posey/de Fierlant. 1st at Kyalami with Scheckter/Nilsson/Grohs. It was sold to Vasek Polak and only ran 2 more races, Laguna Seca 1977 and 1978 with Milt Minter driving.
The car was still in the Vasek Polak collection at the time of his death, was sold to Rug Cunningham and campaigned in vintage races 4 times before trading hands twice to the current owner from Melbourne Australia. The car
will be racing at this years Monterey Historic Automobile races August 12-15.
