Colin Bond played a part in the first car's construction, hence many of the Corolla parts being carried over. However, I believe they were done by Steve Hardman Motorsport, who prepared the cars until the end of '95.

I agree. Wasn't the excuse used by CAMS was that an E36 with a 2.5 litre engine didn't fit into any international set of regulations so couldn't be run here? The fact that no VP Commodore or EB Falcon was homologated into any international set of regs didn't seem to be an issue though

Obviously CAMS just wanted them to pad out the grid.... but considering that BMW fronted for 1993 with more official works cars than Ford or Holden, to treat them the way they were was disgraceful (not to mention they'd just run Nissan out of the sport too)

Bond also raced it on the Wellington streets in 1994 in the APTCC event

The E36 BMW was an Ex Vic Lee Racing (Soper & Harvey) and had no spoilers from memory and ran in the Listerine colors (Adelaide GP I think)

BMW were really shafted by CAMS over the journey whether it be 635csi or 318 Turbo but especailly the M3 EVO II running weight and no DTM electronic aero or bonnet splitters

There were 2 Linder run E36 3 doors in the '93 DTM driven by Armin Hahne and an other. This was after the factory withdrew so maybe Linder were originally tasked with the development in '92 and then decided just to race them anyway?

One could argue that Nissan and BMW did not exercise sufficient lobbying ("inducements" as they would say in FIFA circles) to ensure CAMS selected the successful British 2L regulations exclusively for the ATCC.

Anyway, I think it is more appealing to run your E30 M3 in 2.5L Group A spec than 2.0L Super Tourer (or pre-Super Tourer) spec.

Wasn't the Alfa that Pinkney raced in the BTCC a Super 2000-spec machine in 2007? Much later than the 2001 Super Touring 156s?
