Born in 1979, the M1 Procar Championship pit the world’s top drivers, from multiple series, championships, and disciplines, against each other as a support series for the Formula One Grand Prix. While it’s hard to argue that Formula One wasn’t at it’s prime in the era, to your lack of surprise, I’ll be enjoying the BMWs over the open-wheeled racers nine times out of ten. In case you’ve never had the pleasure, you can enjoy them too, thanks to Champion Magazine.
Deep in the heart of Russia, Vladislav Shkurko has been hard at work, not only reassembling a rather unique Toyota Mark II, but also adding some incredible touches of his own. In blending classic Japanese styling with a hint of Russian flair, there’s little not to love about the future-classic.

Friend and fans of StanceWorks, world wide, have submitted their cars to us since our site went live nearly 8 years ago. Many grow into features, and plenty fall on the backburner, waiting for their chance at the StanceWorks homepage once the finishing touches are applied.

Amongst the BMW history gurus, it’s well-established that BMW’s Neue Klasse (New Class) saved the brand following World War II, and established its still-defining brand identity as a manufacturer of sports sedans. While the ’02 lineup is inarguably a crowd favorite, it’s the four-door counterparts that deserve the initial credit.
