Hi Mr Bridger,

Many thanks for your added info, the reasoning for only posting pics of 17R and 18R, was to show Greg the colour schemes that they are currently displayed with, at this moment in time. Talking of your chassis 16R, I have some action pics, of which I shall post soon.

PS. please let me know if and when, you would like to take over the quiz (with rewards)


Hi Erik, Many thanks for your additional pic of the 96 BMW promo GTR

Hi Mr. Bridger,

How do you like these?



I took them back in 1996 at the "Essen-Motorshow" in Germany.

Re: Location of GTR's - Index

Just found this Patrick -
"All categories of track and off-road motor racing are represented, including

- Formula 1 and other national and international single seater series such as GP2, A1GP, Formula 3000 and manufacturer formulas
- World Rally Championship and other rally series
- Production car-based racing categories such as GTs and Touring Cars
- Drift series such as EDC and D1GP
- Tuned car series such as Time Attack
- Oval and stock car racing such as Hot Rods, BriSCA F1 stock cars and Super Silhuettes among others
- Historic car racing series such as Top Hat and Group C/GTP
- And karting, in the form of the Karting Show, representing top kart manufacturers, accessory retailers and race organisers all on hand to give advice on how to start kart racing!"

Hopefully this means the F1 will be there too, but I can't see anywhere a displayer list
