BMW 320 Turbo road race car - early 1980's?
« on: April 26, 2018, 03:20:04 AM »
Anybody recognize this car or know who owned it here in the Calgary area?  Reinhold Hohmann owned it and raced it in Germany and immigrated here in 1981.  Subsequently he sold it to someone here.

An author from Germany contacted me looking for history of the car while it was in the Calgary
area.

Thanks!

Is that Remi Peterelli's car?

Gary Ledbetter mentioned the same thing.  I believe he bought it from the original owner who brought it from Germany ... so more history is being found out.

It is one of 28 of these cars made by BMW apparently ... rare.

This car is very well documented and known, it was the HAT Würth liveried car and it spent time in Calgary unde the stewardship of Messrs Hohmann and Peterelli. it was piloted by the likes of Manfred Winkelhock.

Last I heard the car had undergone a full and extensive restoration in Australia/Singapore and has been photographed and written about in a variety of magazines such as BMW Car and others.

The SABMW club also published an article about the car maybe 5 years ago with Hohmann’s son who is still resident in Calgary.

I have a number of cast off parts from that car that are now on my race car. Others likely know more about that car as many guys had their hands in it over the years.
