BMC Racing

The Crew at BMC have been involved in racing cars since 1978. In 1979, they began with the very sleek Lola 296 Canam (with a 4 cylinder bdg-x engine with 285 hp).

Between 1984 – 87, BMC Racing handled the set-up and tune-up of a 1982 Reynard Formula Ford (pictured below), with Bill Johnston, driver extraordinaire, as driver. During the 84 – 85 season the car finished 3rd. In the 85 – 86 season it finished first, as well as the 86 – 87 season when the car was converted to a Formula 2000 car.
