Description

According to Schnitzer Motorsport, this BMW 635 CSi Group A car was built by the firm in August 1983 and was destined to compete in the European Touring Car Championship. The car formed part of an enlarged three-car assault on the final round of the championship at Zolder in an attempt to bolster Dieter Quester’s tilt at the title. Driven by Christian Danner and Stefan Bellof, the BMW retired from the race following handling problems, while Quester finished 4th to win the Championship. The car was sold in early 1984 and campaigned by Volker Strycek under the GUBIN Sport banner in the inaugural year of the Deutsche Produktionswagen-Meisterschaft, the race series that would become the DTM; Strycek was crowned Champion despite never having won a race. The car is understood to have been raced by Strycek in 1985, before being sold to Manfred Niederhof for the 1986 season. Today, the BMW 635 CSi has been returned to its 1984 Championship-winning livery and has been regularly campaigned in historic race series. It is both a significant machine in BMW and DTM history and golden ticket to the historic race series for which it is eligible.
