More Britcar races for Moss’ BMW 1M
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.”
