For me, the car above has some special significance. Way back in 1984, at the ripe old age of 17 I went to the World Sports Car 24 hour race at Mosport. For some reason, of all the incredible cars there that weekend this black BMW M1 stuck with me more than any other. Maybe it was the fact that it was a locally owned car, or maybe it was the high pitched wail the car made at speed. Either way, I never forgot it. Marcus Glarner never forgot it either.
Glarner was a member of the Bieri Motors pit crew back in those days and worked with this very car. The car began it’s life in the Procar series with the Project Four team. A quick look at the history books shows Niki Lauda and Hans Stuck as the drivers for Project Four. In 1981, the car was brought to Canada by David Deakin and was raced in IMSA events till 1984. In 85, the car was sold to a collector in California where it stayed until 2002. That was the year that Marcus Glarner came back into the picture and brought the car back to Ontario. The car underwent a mechanical restoration and began racing in vintage events.
The red & white car in the pictures was also an original Procar series machine that raced under the GS Tuning banner with Hans-Georg Burger and Hans Stuck at the helm. That Stuck guy sure gets around. Originally, the car was white but soon after was run in the BASF colours and has stayed that way.
In addition to building and maintaining race cars, Marcus Glarner Motorsports builds suspension components for M1 race cars and even has a web site dedicated to the history of the cars. Soon, The Garage will play host to some incredible M1 videos.
