Sports Car Races

The sportscar races, either championship or non-championship, sometimes attracked an interesting field of touring cars and GT's. For instance, the 1973 Nürburgring 1000 km race was more important to the German manufacturers than a Swedish round of the ETCC. Not only for the home crowd and the prestige, but also the fact that Porsche competed as well. Some races gave an outlook to the future production world championship - which turned out completely different, of course. The ETCC site shows the results of comparable cars within these sportscar races, sometimes bending the rules a little bit to include cars like the Ligier JS2 or the factory Porsche Carrera's.
