The first ever BMW-powered vehicle captured a win at the 22nd SCORE San Felipe 250 offroad race with the help of World Rally driver Armin Schwarz of Germany.
Schwarz is most remembered for racing in WRC from '88-05 competing in 121 events for Skoda and Ford.
Schwarz along with Martin Christensen of Escondido, CA took the unlimited Class 1 race win in their All German Auto desert race car at San Felipe last March. This was the first ever SCORE win for Schwarz.
The #104 BMW-powered Jimco Class 1 race car started in fifth position, but quickly moved up the field until claiming the lead spot. Christensen and Schwarz lead the race- crossing the finish line in San Felipe with an elapsed time of 4:08:22 and average speed of 56.05mph.
Out of the 18 starters in Class 1, only 12 finished the rigorous 232-mile race. Christensen/Schwarz finished 4th overall in the Truck and Car classes.For more pictures and info, visit www.armin-schwarz.com.
