My countrymen keeping it real! Some unique BMWs have been produced in SA - E30 333i, E23 745i manual, E30 325is Evo 2.7, E12 M535i, and so on :-)

I think my love for BMWs and racing may have started with Tony Viana racing E23 7series in the modified saloons class back in the 80s! (cigarette sponsorship of course)

Team Afrox BMW - F30 Racer

The partnership between ADF Motorsport and Afrox is now in its fifth year and Anthony Taylor continues his relationship as a brand ambassador. In 2010, he won his third title in the Bridgestone Production Car Championship with Afrox adorning the bonnet of his BMW racer. Over the following year, Afrox has expanded its involvement in motor racing and enjoyed numerous successes together with BMW and ADF Motorsport.

ADF Motorsport Team Manager Donovan van Heerden said: “It has always been important to us to work together on a long-term basis with our partners, and to celebrate success side-by-side on the racetrack. The co-operation with Afrox and BMW M Performance Parts is the perfect example of this. From the Bridgestone Production Car title in 2010 right through to the numerous wins in the 2011 championship: we have achieved many successees together. We will be doing everything in our power to ensure that this is also the case in 2012 with the new BMW F30 335i. It is fantastic to be able to count on technical partners like Castrol Edge and Akropovic exhaust systems who are also hungry for success.”

“In 2012 the BMW M performance parts association represents a big step in our partnership with ADF Motorsport,” added Chris Joy, Manager: Aftersales Lifestyle and Accessories at BMW South Africa. “We are excited at the prospect of supporting the Team Afrox BMWs on their journey for what we anticipate to be our most thrilling season together.”

When it comes to racing, function>form. I'm sure they were more concerned with making it GO fast than LOOK fast.
