1993 BMW E36 NASA E2/ST5 Challenge Build

Summer of 2021 Palomar Racing brought the #25 to the shop to begin a journey that was not yet un-derstood. To put it bluntly the car was a wreck, literally the car had been “totalled” earlier in the year at Cal Speedway, on the pace laps no less. But there was a car here to turn in to something fun.

The transformation from the underpowered clown car to the car that will compete in our now formed challenge has been amazing.
