Our BMW M3

In keeping with our desire to do the job right using the best equipment available, our managing director David Towe chooses to race a quality piece of Australian motorsport history.

He purchased this ex JPS Team BMW M3 in 2010 and it has a proven race history in the Group A Touring Car Championship. It was the last M3 built by JPS in 1987 and finished 4th outright at the Bathurst 1000 that year with Jim Richards and Tony Longhurst sharing the drive.

In 1988 it was painted white and was driven by the late Peter Brock in the touring car championship and by Brock and Richards at Bathurst that year.



It's been fully restored back to the original JPS livery and has been very successful for David already finishing 3rd at the Australian Muscle Car Masters meeting in September 2011 and 2nd at the May Historic meeting at Eastern Creek Raceway that same year. He was successful by winning the Glenn Seton Trophy at the Morgan Park Historic meeting in Qld in 2013 and pole position and 2 race wins at the inaugural Sydney Retro Speedfest at Sydney Motorsport Park in May of 2014. At the end of the 2014 championship, Towe had taken the eventual winner Terry Lawlor to the last race before the series champion was decided. 2nd outright and 1st in class for the 2014 championship was a pleasing result for the team.

March 2021 saw us return to a new championship year at the wonderful Phillip Island Classic meeting in Victoria and we managed to get an truncated championship completed and ended up with a win. Heritage Touring Cars Group A Champions again, very proud of the team and their efforts. Historic Group A Touring Cars take to the track again in the first round of the championship again at the spectacular Phillip Island circuit in mid March and with the recent easing of restrictions promises to be a return to the world class meeting it is normally. If you're in the area check it out, memories racing at full speed in door to door conditions. Restricted to genuine Group A Touring Cars the Heritage Touring Cars category includes genuine Group C Touring cars formerly driven by such legends as Jim Richards, Peter Brock, Larry Perkins, Dick Johnson and many more. They are sure to bring back memories for those old enough and inspire excitement for those not old enough to have seen them in their heyday.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoHs5_P6pPk  A pit pass is included in the admission price at all of our meetings and you can get up close to the cars and drivers so please feel free to drop by and say Hello.
