Scalextric C3782 DPR BMW E30 M3 #44
Race: BTCC Donington 1991
Driver: Steve Soper
The BMW M3 dominated the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) in the late eighties and early nineties, but Steve Soper was not able to contain Andy Rouse and his Toyota Carina in rounds eight and nine at Donington Park in 1991. While Soper was able to claim second place in the first race, he was forced to retire in the second.
Despite never becoming a BTCC Champion, Steve Soper was hugely successful in motorsport, earning the nickname ¢‚¬œSoperman¢‚¬„¢ from his fans.
