More Brit­car races for Moss’ BMW 1M

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Mike Moss is look­ing to con­tinue de­vel­op­ing his unique BMW 1M E82 Coupe af­ter the car made its com­pe­ti­tion de­but.

Moss ran the car, be­lieved to be the only one of its kind, in the Croft round of the Brit­car En­durance Cham­pi­onship at the end of last month. He used the race as a test ses­sion, as the car had only been out on a cir­cuit once be­fore.

He is likely to use the next Brit­car round at Sil­ver­stone this week­end as an­other test, be­fore seek­ing driv­ers for the Oul­ton Park round in Oc­to­ber.

Moss’ team have been work­ing on con­vert­ing the road car since Novem­ber at a cost of around £150,000 and the fi­nal prod­uct is a V8-pow­ered car that pro­duces 500bhp and weighs just 1000kg.

Some of the mod­i­fi­ca­tions in­clude an ECU that has the abil­ity to in­stantly start and stop the en­gine when at­tach­ing and re­mov­ing the air jack.

“It’s the only one of its kind and truly unique,” said Moss. “The main fo­cus has been on re­mov­ing the weight from the car and I think we’re in good shape to com­pete with the Fer­raris in the cham­pi­onship.”
