JPS BMW 325i - photos?

Hi folks,

Hope this is the right forum for this.

I remember seeing a photo of two JPS 325s on the dummy grid at a classic meeting at Ruapuna somewhere on this site, but now can't seem to find it.

At the time these cars were owned by the Clyde brothers in Christchurch. Sadly Alan passed away at Ruapuna on Saturday having just completed a race in his E36 touring car and the family would like any photos of Alan, especially any of him racing.

If anyone has anything it would be very much appreciated if you could post here, or PM me.

Thanks

I suspect you would have seen images of such cars in the Australian Group A/C Where are they now thread in Austalian Touring Cars forum:

Happy hunting!!

I too, am very interested in finding some photos of the JPS 325i. It's tough getting anything with detail. A search yields an awful lot of pages briefly mentioning it, a lot about the m3s

BMW 323/325 Grp A Photos

My 1985 BMW 323i GRP A
The only 323/325 in the world in official BMW Motorsport livery. it is original. the car was originally owned by BMW Australia, and run by the JPS BMW Team in Sydney, Frank Gardner.
Tony Longhurst was the driver. the car ran in some meetings in the 1985 ATCC and the Amscar Better Brakes Series.
The car has Linder brake and suspension parts, and i have one of the original Linder 2.3 litre engines.

more photos

here are some more.
some are the JPS 323 which ran at the end of 1985, and one is the same car, but in 1986 it was converted into a 325i. both the 325's were in Christchurch NZ until a few years ago.
I still have the 323 BMW Motorsport car.

BMW 323 1986 Bathurst Effort....

the BMW 323 Grp A car was owned privately in 1986. it entered the 1000km Bathurst race, lasted 121 laps i think, and barrel rolled at the end of Conrod straight, thorough the kitty litter on the inside of the corner and came to rest on its side.
the car has been rebuild perfectly.
There are some photo's of Tony Longhurst back in 1985.
