Description

Competition car
Unregistered
Chassis n°004

- Legendary Warsteiner factory team colours
- Great period racing history
- Extensively restored by Atlantic Racing

In 1975, the SS02 evolved into the TOJ SC03, designed by Achim Storz and still powered by a BMW engine. It had its first outright win at Brands Hatch in the " Britannia 2000 " race. Results were good throughout the season and it won its class and came ninth overall.
The TOJ SC03 in the sale competed in 10 races, and of seven finishes, there were four podiums with a win at Brands Hatch and Hockenheim. Running in the Eurorace Warsteiner/ Jorg Obermoser factory team colours, it was equipped with the 2L BMW M12 engine and FG400 gearbox. Note : the chassis plate indicates the year of construction as 1976 : this is the year it was comprehensively repaired by TOJ after an accident in 1975. Bought by the current owner in 2015, the car then underwent a thorough two-year restoration that included the engine, carried out by renowned specialists Atlantic Racing. This prototype has not been fully tested since and will require race prep before taking to the track.
