Best in show. 2012 Legends of the Autobahn Concours

Let me say right up front, “Thank you, Mary!” I wouldn’t be doing any of this if I didn’t have the complete support of my wife. She not only makes it all possible, she also makes it a lot of fun!

I am fortunate enough to own and race several vintage BMW’s. These include- a 1935 BMW 315/1 Special known as the “Willis Wonder,” a 1961 BMW 700S, a 1965 BMW 1800Ti, a 1972 BMW 2002, one of the original Hyde Park Motors Tans-Am 2002s, and a 1973 BMW CSL from the championship Luigi BMW team from 1976-77.

This is a passion that I have had for as long as I can remember. I hope to regularly post stories, thoughts, pictures, videos, results, and assorted musings about my love of cars and my adventures racing my vintage BMW’s.

Please be sure to leave comments!

  1. I really enjoyed your video on the Luigi car and pleased with your paint choice. I purchased two CSL’s last year that are clones of the two red and white Luigi’s. Although they don’t have period race history they are original CSL . Love to send some pics etc. I hope to get them out on the track this Spring.

  2. Hello Steve,

    I’m currently planing to bring your BMW CSL Luigi Racing to Assetto Corsa (the best racing simulator out there) as a mod (free for everyone).

    Since you have the original 001 car and obviuously a lot of experience I would like to kindly ask you for some help. With help I mean any Kind tecnical data (for the physics simulation) to build the most accurate virtual CSL.

    Please contact me via mail.

    Kind regards
    Stephan

  3. Hi,
    Are you looking for a poster of the BMW Luigi in Nordschleife jump?
    I´m a Portuguese motorsport fan, and during the 2017 Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion I heard Mr. Ralph Sheheen saying that you were looking for a BMW Luigi poster on the Nordschleife jump. So I decided to “goggle” a little, and after a few minutes I found this on ebay that might interest you.

    I hope this information helps you in some way.
