Pre-Season Scrutineering – E30 Class Cars

Prior to the start of the BMW Race Driver Series Season 2018-2019, all E30 series competitors will be required to have their cars checked at one of two locations.

P & S Autocentre Ltd  7 Trugood Drive, East Tamaki. Ph 09 272 2951
Sparg’s Auto Tune Ltd   62 Porana Road, Wairau.  Ph 09 442 1091

Items that will be checked:Differential (correct ratio and operation)
Correct Race Series Suspension and Springs
Correct and untampered fuel pressure regulator
Idle control in correct specification
Seal and register the seal number for: engine, gearbox and differential
Note any unauthorised modifications

The Fee for this service will be $90 + GST. This is payable directly to the service centre doing the work.

After this initial check. If you require a seal replaced (For example: due to replacement of a gearbox, diff or engine work) the fee is $20 + GST per Seal.

Any car scrutineered during the season found without seals on the engine, Gearbox and diff will lose all points to-date and may also be excluded for the meeting.

If you cannot make it to either location to have your car checked (you live in Tauranga for example) you must contact the BMW Race Driver Series to organise a solution.

Consider this also a good chance to get your WOF done. Contact them for prices.

Very Important points

You must book a time for the checks to be done. Please do not just show up and expect them to check your car on the spot. You will be disappointed.
