BMW E30 Alpina at Zandvoort – BMW Drivers (BDC)

The day started out promising, clouds being normal the track being located 100 yards from the beach. had a good day at Spa in the pouring rain, we quite excited how the old girl hold up in the bone-dry. We also any rain tires at home

As usual on days like our car was one of the least impressive to look at. E92 Cupcars, E46′s, E36′s, 911 Westfields and the usual E30′s our ‘competition’ in the open-pit-lane event.

had some pick-up issues on the last time out at Spa-Francorchamps, we ourselves not too rich in the tire Out back, we used 185′s. at least it will oversteer!

Car is a standard Alpina Engined E30 with the BMW M-technik I bodykit ‘ ab ‘

The car sits nice and low on a all-round suspension (rear was modified) and force comes from Superlites all round (310mm up 280mm discs from Z1 at the

As you can see, enough cars the spoilers and stripes that speed (…)

First incident when a tire decided to just before entering the straight in a fast righthander ‘Bos Uit’. This the glassfibre wing to pieces and the inner fender, smashed off the assembly and front bumper +

Some hammering, cutting, and Duct Tape saw us through. I was back into the pitlane because the far end of the wing had come again, but in the end the car held up perfectly. No to feel at all.

Thank god we painted that wing

Hummer meets E30

Taking the 180 righthander ‘Tarzan’, which has a late apex and calls for excessive late-braking. Honestly we able to catch up with faster cars on the straights by much later.

View into Hunzerug, a part of the track. Aim for that triangle on the right, shifting to gear about exactly at the of taking this picture.

straight, entry to pitlane on the With a shorter diff, our car see the far end of 200 km/h here and it marks the part of the racetrack.

Trusty BMW E28 came in handy to spare its LH once the E30′s was slugged off by the tire.

Then, disaster during a full-… lap. The car unbelievably well (since not polite to talk about our compared to other cars day we’ll leave that out of the but you catch my drift!), untill I a loud SNAP just in of ‘Bocht 8′. There is no really braking here, but it does up on a couple of quick corners.

The car immediately became uncontrollable and into the kitty-litter runoff

Sad to say, the Zandvoort crew was inaccurate and quite rude in the car onto the track, resulting unnecessary collateral  damage. BDC crew however helped us out you can really tell that Dik and his people have true for the sport. Sadly, the ‘Zandvoort that tow the car in this club-event do not.

We were not happy about if someone doesn’t like involved in motor racing please find another in all my years on tracks I have encountered such rudeness and I can honestly not recommend having car towed out of a safety zone by people. Motorsport involves going into the run-off and especially in our case, this happens once every two

Taking 5 mins extra to be smart doesn’t cost and dragging a car out in 5 secs time watching your work put me back 4-5 months of work.

The cause of all this trouble, a OEM part. We are now designing our own reinforced suspension! Keep you all posted.
