Elina,
For years I dreamed of doing what you did. The difference is, you actually did it. Rock on!

The car hobby is so incredibly diverse. All kinds of people are drawn to this for all sorts of reasons. Younger. Older. Whatever. I love the way this video series embraces and celebrates this aspect of the sport and the hobby. A 2002 is such a solid platform for this kind of driving. Great car. Committed driver. Thanks for sharing this story with us.

you rock, Elina… I race a 1969 Chevron B16 that is powered by the very same type engine as your 2002: the BMW M10… keep the revs up !!! Best – Kurt
