In den beginne.

Het verhaal van onze auto begint bij de duitser Rainer Fink. Hij reed vanaf 1987 het duitse heuvelklim kampioenschap (Deutsche Bergmeisterschaft) in een BMW M3, en besloot waarschijnlijk dat hij voor het seizoen 1991 een auto nodig had die nieuwere onderdelen had. Zo bestelde hij chassis nummer 123407 bij Linder. Deze werd in januari 1991 voorzien van een rolkooi en afgeleverd in de karakteristieke paarse Linder kleur. Omdat hij ging meedoen aan heuvelklims was het vooral belangrijk om een zo licht mogelijk chassis te hebben, dus koos hij voor een niet zo uitgebreide rolkooi die tot 1990 de norm was geweest. Hij bouwde de auto op met ABS, een 2,5 liter motor, een wielophanging die op dat moment het nieuwste van het nieuwste was en 18 inch wielen. Toen de auto klaar was nagelde men een plaatje met de tekst "Fi-005-91" op de rechter wielkast. Waarschijnlijk betekent dit dat het zijn 5de auto was, gemaakt in het jaar 1991. De buitenkant van de auto was bij zijn eerste aantredens nog maagdelijk wit met de bekende M-strepen over de achterspatborden, maar al snel kwamen daar ook M-strepen op de motorkap bij. Als 'finishing touch' werd de M3 voorzien van een stel paars gekleurde koplampen.

Construction Rainer Fink raced a BMW M3 Group A in 1989 and 1990 but that one had a bolted-in roll cage. Probably the car had an older specification and Fink was looking for an upgrade, that became chassis #123407. It was fitted with all the latest suspension parts but had an relatively 'old', light roll cage specification that was used before 1990. The purple color suggests it came from Linder and some say they read about it in a magazine saying "Ex Linder". He also put a chassis plate on with "Fi-005-91".
  08/25/1991
to 09/21/1991
Striping added The car shows some added striping for the next race, this was probably added during this period.
  01/01/1992
to 12/31/1992
The 1992 season Rainer Fink decides he wants to up his game, he sells the M3 to Andreas Kovesdan, a Hungarian BMW dealer, and moves on to prototypes, eventually becoming European champion. Mister Kovesdan steps up from a 325i and becomes meistershaftssieger 1992 with the M3 in group A. More results needed. Also second in hungarian touring car Source
  01/01/1993
to 12/31/1993
The 1993 season. Neither the M3 or mister Kovesdan appear in any results, so the car was probably having a little break in garage. This has to be verified.
  01/01/1994
to 12/31/1994
The 1994 season Kovesdan returned to motorsport and participated in the "Autós Gyorsasági Országos Bajnokság". That's the national touring car championship of Hungary. As seen in the records and records2 he became champion in group A and was close to winning the overal standings. The records also say he didn't enter the last round of the championship.
  01/01/1995
to 12/31/1995
Season 1995 Kovesdan continues to race the M3, but the classes have changed and the car is put in to group S, we don't know what that means. All other group A cars are also put here, including some very fast E36 M3's, explaining the somewhat 'lesser' results. The car doesn't finish in the first round and is missing at the next event, repairs? Finished 6th in the group S championship. Source We only have one partial photo of the car in this year.
  01/01/1996
to 12/31/1996
Season 1996 Andreas Kovesdan competes with the M3 in class S of the Hungarian touring car's again. He doesn't finish the first race and doesn't show up at the next event.. problems?
