Welcome to PRO3 Racing
The BMW PRO3 racing group will be starting their 11th season of exciting racing in 2013 here in the Pacific Northwest.
The PRO3 class was introduced in 2003 with the emphasis on driver development. We race with the sanctioning body ICSCC. The class is based on the rugged and readily available BMW E30 325i that was manufactured for the North American market between 1987 and 1991. For more information on the history of this race class, visit the About PRO3 page.
PRO3 is the fastest growing class of race cars in ICSCC. This rapid growth is due in no small part to the sense of camaraderie within the group. PRO3 drivers are all amateur road racers. Most received their start in car club driving events before moving up to pure racing. By day they are chefs, architects, pilots, engineers, physicians and other occupations. All have a love for racing and the camaraderie of racing with each other in the PRO3 class.
PRO3 Specifications at a Quick Glance
PRO3 is a spec racing class for BMW E30s in the Pacific Northwest. It is the intent of the Pro-3 class to create a restrictive formula for BMW cars designed to emphasize driver ability rather than design and preparation of the car. The spirit of the formula will not allow any modifications that would increase the cost of competition, nor lend to an unfair performance advantage.
