Yes, Honda Accords (yes, led by Randy Pobst)had some great races a couple of years ago during the North American flavor of the Super Touring season (which I think has been dropped)--- but they were racing against 4-door configured 318 or 325 's and NOT M3's. I also believe that Dodge had a couple of good runs, as well. If you follow the European Super Touring races you will see other BMW's up against Mercedes which is much more thrilling. In Super Touring, even an M3 wouldn't be much of an M3 any more once race prep was completed- and neither would any other car, for that matter.
: I found this rather absurd message on one of the import message boards claiming mid 1980's Honda Civic's beating M3's?? WTF? is this guy for real or is he just a ignoramus. I'll post the message below :

: In SCCA, M3s run against the Integra Type-R in stock classes, and against Integras and CRXs and Civics in Street Prepared (for
: autocross). If you'll recall, M3s ran against Honda Accords in Super Touring (and lost)
: As a side note, they also get beat by the Integras in SCCA road racing, and by mid-'80s Civic hatchbacks in autocross.
