Sorry about the quality of the photo, still a bit to learn about posting these on the forum.
BTW, many thanks to Snapper Baz and falcemob for resurrecting a thread in Motorsoprt Art & Photography which has allowed me to post this.

That looks like identical livery to the Donington one I have, although the amount of car in my picture makes it hard to tell. I'm failry sure the ETCC round I was at was '84, but not positive - it was the first 'proper' race I ever went to following the rallysprint the previous Autumn.

Sytner first drove a 635 at Silverstone on 12 June 1983. This is what Autosport had to say about the car.

Frank Sytner pronounced himself well pleased with the way his BMW 635CSi ran at Silverstone in last Sunday's Group A race, and is looking forward to the rest of the season.
The race was not without its problems, though, as the car was a real handful to drive. "It was understeering through every corner," he said.
The car has been built with full ETC rounds in mind and has on-board jacks and a full quick refuelling system. Sytner plans to take in most of the remaining rounds of the British championship as well as the TT, where he will share the driving with Brian Muir. Muir, who was on hand with advice at Silverstone, has done most of the testing of the car.
But no amount of testing can throw up problems like a race can. The car is left-hand-drive, and Sytner could not read his pit board properly! "All I could see was the car's A-pillar and part of the board. On more than one occasion I thought I was on my last lap. We shall just have to get a bloody great board for next time..."

In the Autosport season review there is this about the car.

Sytner's car was prepared and run by Ted Grace Racing who, united with Malcolm Gartlan, made a welcome return to the series. Until Sytner's backing arrived - and effectively saved the car from being a permanent non-runner - it had been hoped to run the car for Brian Muir. Muir did get to drive the car - in the TT - but tragically died on his way home from that meeting after a heart attack.

Couple of photos of Sytner, the first from the 1983 TT, the second from the BTCC race at Donington in May 1985 during the ETCC meeting. Hope they are of use.

Dougal M, I have a really good pic of your car at the 85 Welly street race, coming out of the hairpin, if you're interested in seeing it. Was this car later painted yellow?

You should speak to David Towe. You'll find his details here. He owns an ex JPS M3 and has a very good knowledge of the 635s and the M3s, and their woven histories.

Check out the 'Historics Awesome Stuff' thread under Australasian Touring Car area on this site.

My dad has been helping Mike Newman with his 635CSi this year. Its going to be out at Donington later this year. My dad used to mechanic for Mike back when he was racing in BTCC untill he set up a Formula Ford team with Jonathan Lewis.

I'll try to get some information about it. Has anyone got any pictures?
