Background

Driftworks E30 M3 Track Car

The original concept for this build was to create a capable dedicated track car that would take over duties from Phil’s personal 997.2 Porsche GT3.

It’s taken nearly five years to complete the build due to many distractions and hurdles to overcome. But the car is every bit as fast as the GT3 it replaced and is extremely rewarding to drive.

As ever; it’s an ongoing project & Phil has an ever-present reserve of ideas to improve the car the moment we get some spare time.
