How A $500 Craigslist car(bmw) beat $400K rally racers
 
Professional motorsport is a cold, hard place. If you want to run with the big dogs, you can't just build a car in your mom's garage and show up, right? Wrong. One guy did just that earlier this month. Here's his amazing story.

I read that earlier today, that's just amazing how a car like that could even come close to competing with WRC cars. But I'm curious about what class he was in and what that loophole was in the rules.

I wonder what class they entered
