1972 BMW 3.0 CSL Rally
Finnish driver Rauno Aaltonen and British navigator John Davenport contested the Olympia Rally from Kiel to Munich in August 1972. The rally began in Kiel and proceeded south and west to the Nurburgring before turning east through the mountains and on to the finish in Munich Olympia Park. The car was raced twice at the Nuburgring in 1973 and later ended up in the U.S. The car spent 20 years in a Philadelphia garage, and in 2011 collector Peter Gleeson shipped the car to England for restoration by CSL expert Alex Elliott.
