E30 leads in class at One Lap of America

A couple of friends of mine are piloting an e30 in this year's Cannonball One Lap of America. Their e30 is currently leading the SSSGT2 SB class and 10th overall. (as of this afternoon).

Here is some coverage in Motor Trend: http://blogs.motortrend.com/6674511/...ica/index.html



Kevin Kreisa, the owner of the car and the builder, is my go to guy for anything I do not DIY on my e30. He has poured his heart and soul into this car. Anthony Magagnoli is a hotshoe SpecE30 and BMW CCA (ringer) driver and is the pilot on the track parts of the event.

Please take some time to visit their web page www.dtronelap.com and follow their progress and live video feeds. You can also donate to their title sponsor, BMW CCA Street Survival.

Good luck fellas!!!!

He has a pretty good build thread over at bf.c in the forced induction forum. He goes by dtrguy over there, and here as well. With his proper work installing and to some extent, modifying, the Eurostop flares, bumpers and hood are looking damn good.

Kevin is an excellent fabricator, but is really a jack of all trades when it comes to cars. He really has a touch with custom turbo setups.

I got a chance to talk to both of these guys at the Mid-Ohio driver's school about a month ago. Real cool guys and an awesome car! Seeing it on the track was a treat.

That's awesome. I can't wait to check out their site when I get home, it's blocked here at work :/

Also that Mazda 5 wagon with the mazdaspeed3 swap is sick. I wonder if it really is a direct bolt-in engine like they say? Shit I'd love to have a car like that. I've always dug the 5 minivan, it's smaller size and edgy styling with a 250+hp turbo motor would be strait

Looks great, I like the flairs a lot better molded on than the usual riveted on.

They are up to 8th overall. And this was all on tracks that Anthony had never visited. Now on to MidOhio, NJMP and Nelson ledges, all ones he knows.

If the car holds up, they should be a lock in their class. Top 10 overall looks likely, and who knows, one or two others have issues, and they could be top 5!!!!!!

Look at the cars above them - and realize that most of them are built quite extensively, and you realize what a feat this is in an old e30.!!!!

Epic quote:

"BMW is easily the most represented brand this year. The One Lap crew is using a fleet of 5 and 3 Series graciously provided by the BMW Performance School, and there's a small army of M-badged coupes and roadsters flooding the pits. The fastest one, though, is a 1990 325is. It's sitting comfy at 12th overall right now after two top ten finishes today."

Those are Eurostop panels? Freaking gorgeous, IMO.
