The other Women - BMW 120D

Hi All,

I know I've been quiet recently, thank fully the MGB is behaving, but this one isn't.

She is a BMW 120D endurance racer run by SVDP racing here in Dubai.

A team of us from the local Petrolheads forum are all acting as spanner monkey's.

However our first event the Dubai 24 hours was a DNS, much problems with injectors and electronics.

Full write up is here at circuit pro digital magazine.

 We spent more time in the pits than on the track, if only this was the real reason !

Despite the poor result it was great working with such a like minded bunch and as a result the car has been withdrawn from its former mechanics, a professional garage and a bunch of us are now working on her.

After a few weeks we have got the fuel issues sorted and now got a proper code reader and making progress into solving the problems. The plan is to run SPA, Barcelona and the Dubai 24 hours next season so stand by for lots more from the little 120.

Next . . . . . . . Hopefully a report of a good test day at the track with the 120D.
