Chris Harris video: BMW rallying

Harris is going rallying in an old 3 Series - this video tells the story so far...



After several months in the shed, the 325 was coaxed into life late last week. If I was mildly infatuated with the concept of cheap, sideways fun - having used the thing I'm now going to become a complete bore on the subjects. Sod track-days, a session at Phil Price's in a 325 is motoring heaven.

A stop to buy new tyres
A stop to buy new tyres
The plot of this little caper is entirely self-explanatory, the conceit behind it is simple. I want to do this in the correct spirit - hence my tatty old Range Rover and the slightly used trailer.

Apologies for the lack of words - it's a bit hectic at the moment, but I hope this home-movie of four chaps having a weeny adventure inspires just a few people to try something similar. For many folk it would be a much more rewarding experience than owning an expensive road car.

Enjoy the vid

Looks like fun, reminds me of my mate and I in my Marina 2000 and his Maxi in our works carpark on a Saturday afternoon... After a decent snow fall. Ripped out a whole row of bushes with some awsamm oppo lock antics in the Marina, the Maxi was just hilarious head on understeer into the verges - the groundsman was bemused on Monday... Tee hee...

Brilliant, I'm now ruined for all other car shows! And I had no idea you were anywhere near Monmouth - I just passed my test there only two weeks ago!

Brilliant! My Dad rallies an E30 325i on and off (new rally car on the way) and they are great. Just make sure your preparation is better next time...laugh Oh and come over to Manby on the 21st of July for a single venue for a warm up.

Cracking vid, but a shame about the tyre situation. Definitely looking forward to the next instalment!

TBH I’ve been toying with the idea of selling the clio cup and getting an e30 325 for the autosolo / 12 car events. I think its time to grab the RWD bug by the horns, this video certainly inspires confidence!

Love the vid Chris. It's sets out what so many of us would love to do, but seldom actually do it! Sideways, RWD fun, what more do you need?
I'll be interested to hear how you get on with the events, and budget etc.
New tow car and trailer first though!
Cheers
Iain

That was great but the trailer.... Exactly how old were the tyres? I hate to be a boring git but trailer tyres should be given as much respect as car tyres, are they 5 years or older? Bin them! Do they have light crack marks on the side walls, Bin them! Get my drift?!

Another brilliant video Mr Harris, have to admit if I suffered as many trailer punctures as you I would be feeling a little cheesed off..

Great vid, looks a good little test stage too. You look to be getting to grips with it! When you going to come out and do an event with us Chris? The offer of shared service with us still stands!
We have had a mixed season so far, with a few good results and roll and an off road experience!! The beemer had to have every panel apart from the bonnet and front wing!!frown
