Speedhunters recently wrote a nice piece about the latest incarnation of the Yost Autosport E92 M3 race car. We were proud to be a large part of this build; we remember when this came to our shop as a bone stock Silverstone M3. Congrats to the Yost Autosport team and looking forward to a great 2015 season!

Every year we participate in the European Car Magazine Tuner GP with one of our project BMWs. Having previously competed with a supercharged E92 M3 and a supercharged E86 Z4M, this was the first year we showed up with a turbo car. With our M4 putting down 559hp and 605ft-lbs tq at the wheels, we made some changes prior to the event to help this beast handle the race track.
While lowering springs are perfect for the street, the track demands a bit more. We opted for a set of KW Clubsport 2-way adjustable coilovers, which enabled us to dial-in the optimal settings for the highly technical Streets of Willow Raceway. We then installed a front/rear Brembo GT big brake kit for better stopping power and fade-free performance. Like many of our track-going customers, we installed a set of strong and lightweight 18" Apex EC-7 wheels wrapped in the event required Continental Extreme Contact DW tires.
Just like every other year we've competed, we drove our M4 to and from the event to prove that it's a double duty street/track weapon. Our driver, Jordan Yost of Yost Autosport, piloted the F82 and put down some awesome lap times. To get all the details you'll have to wait for the European Car Tuner GP issue to hit newsstands sometime early next year, but for now you can check out these exclusive photos and video from the event. Enjoy!
Our friends at Yost Autosport dropped by last week to show off their completed M3 race car! If you remember from a while back, we showed you this car in its initial build stages as well as when it was nearing completion in our booth at Bimmerfest. Since then, this E92 has come a very long way. Over the next 6 weeks this car is going to be tested and fine tuned in preparation for the N.A.S.A Pro Racing 25 Hours of Thunderhill endurance race in Northern California. We took a ton of photos to show you every detail of this incredible build, but if you want more info, head over to Yost Autosport's website and be sure to follow them on Instagram. Enjoy!
We currently have the pleasure of working on this very cool build. Our go to driver, Jordan Yost and his team at Yost Autosport, is building this Silverstone II E92 M3 into a proper race car. From YostAutosport.com:
This car is being built to comply with and/or be easily modified for three different sanctioning bodies; NARRA USGT Enduro, N.A.S.A. Pro Racing Western Endurance Racing Championship, and Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Championship GS. As of right now Yost Autosport plans on campaigning this car in both NARRA USGT Enduro and N.A.S.A. Pro Racing Western Endurance Racing Championship races in 2014. While endurance racing will be our main focus you will likely see this car at other events as well such as Global Time Attack, EuroTuner GP, and MFest in 2014.
Check out these photos of how the car is coming along.
