The brand new SRC Olympia Rallye 1972 BMW 2.8 CS is now available as a kit.
It is the works car of Rauno Aaltonen and John Davenport, who had to retire on the 32nd of a total of 67 special stages with a defective head gasket.
The 3,500-kilometer event took place from 13 to 19 August 1972. It started in Kiel, a city in the north of Germany, and finished in the south, in Munich, a week before the Olympic Games.

The 17000 rpm SRC M3 motor is positioned as an inliner in a separately sprung pod.
The spring-loaded guide is positioned as far forward as possible in front of the car, which makes it very stable.
The front axle can be adjusted with four grub screws; two on each side at the bottom of the front axle and two at the top.

Thanks to the Lexan interior, the weight remains just under 80 grams.
Here are a few pictures of the build process and the car ready to go:

Did you mask off the areas for the decals so they would have a white background?

Life is like a box of Slot cars... Cool Drinkingcheers

Hi Kevan,

No, there are white areas on the blue decals of the size of the Castrol striping, red Sport Illustrierte and rally plate on the boot lid.
These are on top of both blue decals.

The Castrol striping decal is on the saucer.                                                                            .. and then on top of the white part of the blue decal.

That track is not finished yet, but some parts are already usable for taking pictures.
Now that it's getting warmer in the garage I can get back to work on the track. Sun

Just for fun, here are some more photos of the SRC BMW:
