To only drink beer that sponsors BMW racing teams from the 80's is a bit sad, there are so many other beers out there with so much more flavour, and taste....particularly Labatt's.:puke:

One can still appreciate the past, and BMW's but why limit yourself, do you think the before mentioned companies, who no longer are involved in said sponsorship give a rat's a$$ what you drink. If you truly enjoy beer, spend an afternoon at the beer market, and expand your mind, hell sample other beers from Germany, if you must tie yourself to BMW in all aspects of your life:rolleyes:

Great pics though, to bad BTCC isn't shown here in North America, still great racing.

These were taken in 2004 at Donington. Will Hoy 1991 BTCC Car.
In the 2nd pic you can see Vic lee himself standing in the middle against the fence. LoL
I believe he was out of jail at this time, but in 2005 Vic Lee was again charged along with
three others and convicted of drug trafficking offences, which he received again, twelve years imprisonment

Now knowing a bit more of old ex race M3s, that isn't the real ex will hoy car... Lots of clues, as the Evo wing and spoiler combos, ride height way too high at the front, gas filler in the lic plate panel instead of the c pillar, and most notably, the 92 DTM spec roll cage. Whoever did the livery did an awesome job though! Just thought I'd comment for the heck of it :)

The first batch of pics are from 1991. You can see the actual team (Vic Lee Motorsports) owner (Vic Lee) in the middle leaning against the fence.
He was jailed numerous times for drug trafficking !

No they aren't.

In addition to what I mentioned earlier, that isn't Hoys helmet on the driver sitting in the car, and they never ran with head restraint/bolstered seats back then in '91 either.

Haha, wow, big point I forgot to mention earlier... the interior of the original Will Hoy car is blue, this car is white. Definitely not the same car.

FWIW Robb, I would never rely on a model to tell me what is correct and what isn't. Soper didn't drive a VLM car in '91, as he was with the Prodrive team that year driving #44. The #12 car your model is supposed to be is for Ray Bellm. Look up the results and you will see.
