Tracing a DTM car...
Posted 17 December 2004 - 09:52
( I've struggled with a search, 'cos DTM, BMW, M3 and E30 are all unrecognized as searchable words - and needed a min of 3 is no help either! - or am I doing something wrong! )
I have all Autosports etc for short race reports but does anyone have enough detail recorded to match a particular car to any published race accounts? I will enocourage new owner to browse TNF anyway as I think there is much here to interest him.

I believe my friend is happy to have the car regardless of its specific history (he wants to drive it, rather than polish and store it!) but it seems to have been through a number of specs during its life and he's more concerned with not spoiling it further if it has some interesting background and wants to make appropriate restorations. (Or if it hasn't, then a little less regard for originality might be excused and spend the money on making it go faster!). He's heard no claims to it being an ex-Ravaglia car or anything so exalted, but at least one relatively big name.
I'm not trying to be awkwardly vague - it's just that I haven't told him I've posted this yet! I ask him to look in and hopefully you or others may be able to help him or point in him the right direction at least -- for example, finding what the differences in spec would typically be between, Group A, N and DTM so that it's changes and varied career might be plotted.
