What a great story this is! A guy with no previous WRC experience buys a $500 1991 BMW 318i beater off Craigslist, swaps in a M3 engine, and enters into the WRC Rally Mexico race. He has no pit crew, a co-driver that he never had any driving time with, and course notes from a Peruvian team in Spanish. He comes in third place in his class!
