Hello I’m in Austin TX and have 3 e30’s. I have a 91 318is, a 86 325es 2.7i, and a 89 325i parts car. I am interested in racing my e30’s but I have no clue on what to do so I can race.
Start by doing a few track days if you haven’t already. BMWCCA does events around, as well as NASA. Drivers edge is very active, near one event a month and instruction and safety is pretty good. Once you get a a few schools under your belt, you can look into doing a race school and getting your license. Spec e30 isn’t huge here in Tejas yet, but if the coasts are any indication, should have a decent field in the next few years.
BTW, I’m in Austin too.
Thanks for reply, for track days do you need a race license? Also first thing is first get the suspension up to date!
You don’t need a race license for track days - the first part is a performance driving school then later you get a race license. Unless the suspension is worn out, don’t think you have to put a “performance” suspension on before you go out for track days. Lots of people use their daily drivers with a safety/tech checkout.
http://www.nasaforums.com/viewforum.php?f=26 is the NASA Texas forum. Even if you’re not ready to take your car on track, go hang out at an event to see how things work. Ask lots of questions - everyone will be happy to help you get started.
Thanks for the info.
Any good M20 know how?
