On Saturday, Sept 10 about a dozen QC Car Club members gathered at Kimberly BMW of Davenport for a show and tell from Bettendorf resident Mark Pauly. Mark’s former daily driver, a 2006 E46 M3 has been stripped and prepped for racing by Fall Line Motorsports. This fall the OEM inline six will be swapped for a V-8. Mark’s first track test of the new setup occurs November 4-6 at Road Atlanta for the 2011 SCCA American Road Race of Champions . Kimberly provided great sandwiches and beverages for all.
