E30 Racing was established in 2000 by a group of BMW enthusiasts. The aim was to devise a race series for BMWs that would be affordable, enjoyable and competitive.
The series is a one-make racing series for the classic BMW E30 3-series coupe or sedan from the 1980’s. Predominantly based on the 325i model specifications, only limited modifications are permitted in order to provide an enjoyable, affordable entry-level touring car category. The aim is to provide close competition and to emphasise driver ability rather than driver expenditure.
An 80’s icon of motoring, the BMW’s catch-phrase for the E30 3-series was the “Ultimate Driving Machine”. 2001 was the inaugural year of “E30 Racing” as it has become known. Since then numbers have grown significantly, new friendships have been born and the competition and rivalry has become passionate.
