Achilles Motorsport at 25 Hour Thunderhill

One of the most impressive efforts found in the 25 hour event comes from the Achilles Motorsport team, who’s weapon of choice from 2008-2011 is an e36 M3 that actually started life with BMW Motorsport in Europe as a 24 Hours of Nürburgring race car!

 

This rare gem was brought to the states by a BMW CCA club racer, and 5 years ago was purchased from Milner Racing by it’s current owner and racer, Marc Ghafouri . This car was purchased specifically for this race. It’s debut 25 Hour race took place in 2008 with a Nitto Tire sponsorship, and the car took 1st in class and 2nd overall, 14.5 seconds behind the leader!

Features of this racer include Aero development by Brooks Motorsports, engine parts from VAC Motorsports, Performance Friction brakes, and APEX ARC-8 18×10 Hyper Black wheels with 275/35/18 Hoosier r6 rubber.

EDGE takes 2nd @ Global Time Attack

Congratulations to Will Faules and the EDGE Motorworks team for taking 2nd in class at the final Global Time Attack event in 2011!

At Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California, Faules enjoyed the chance to show off his driving talent behind the wheel of the APEX-sponsored BMW e30 dubbed “Frankenstein”, built and raced by EDGE Motorworks, November 12, 2011. Competing against the most extreme track cars that can only be expected from the Global Time Attack series, this local grass roots team defended their home turf against many impressive high-dollar cars. Will showed them up with a 1:46.116, piloting this 1987 BMW e30 featuring a makeshift wide-body and Hyper Silver 18×10″ APEX ARC-8 light weight wheels wrapped in 285/30/18 Hoosier R6 rubber.
