• Silverstone - May 2012

    Project 8 Racing Saloons

    This was a slightly different PR8 weekend to usual.  The red E36 M3 was being driven by Peter and Matt hired-out Julian Newman's (series organiser) E34 M5.  This car's history goes back to Peter Challis in the 90s in the BMW Championship.  Somewhat heavy, old and tired, the M5 prooved great fun to drive and a proper challenge to try to keep up with the quicker E36 M3s.  

    Fortunately Silverstone National is just the ciruit for a heavy car with good power, with 3 long straights and minimal corners!
