racetracks, and compete in some autocrosses on parking lots. For racing,
check <http://bmwccaclubracing.com> and <http://scca.org> and
<http://nasaproracing.com> and <http://northamericanbavarianracing.com>.

location. BMW CCA and SCCA might have rally programs in your area too.
> can anybody tell me where to find somewhere to legally race?You and your car both have quite a way to go before you'll be ready for
wheel-to-wheel racing with any sanctioning body. You'll need all the safety
equipment (roll cage, electrical cutoff, fuel cell, seat & harness, HANS
device, etc.) along with racing schools toward a competition license. You
might find that some of your mods are illegal in any category in which your
E28 might be competitive, so you've already bumped yourself into a higher
level of preparation and competition. Instead of focusing on racing, I
would strongly encourage you to start with some BMW CCA high performance
driving schools first.

car with no extra equipment, and no worries about injuring the car. If the
course is laid out correctly there's no chance of hitting another car or any
stationary objects (curbs or light poles). If something goes wrong you'll
just spin or slide, and the worst effect on your car will be scuff marks
from the cones.
