Opinion needed RE a touring car
« on: June 19, 2016, 12:34:11 PM »
Hi guys ,

Just want to hear your opinions. Is the BMW M3 GTR Race Car '01 a touring car class or not ?
All info I can find is that it took part in ALMS ( American Le Mans series ). I can't find anything re touring car champs it took part in.

Opinions ?

 Sounds like a GT car then.

BMW possibly used the 4 door car during touring champs... (excluding DTM..which we know was M3 at the time..)

I suspect the 320i was also used in World Touring champs...but also not 100% sure...

Maz, In 2001 BMW races the 320i in the European Touring Car series and i cannot find the M3 featuring in any European series from 2002 to 2006. So maybe it was restricted to the USA series?
