GP der Tourenwagen 1974


BMW was here in full force, with ABS for the first time. Alas, the race was a disaster.
One of the Capris lapping some slower cars; I suspect the Commodore of Wauters to be retired in the background.
It sure wasn't BMW's day, unlike last year. The immaculate Arm/Cocher car retired with engine failure...
The Faltz' car left the race after an accident. We'll return to the Jolly Club car in a moment...
Well, here it is - Mohr having rolled the car... ... and Mass parked the Capri next to it.
The two incidents must have been related, but opinions differed...
The unfortunate BMW of Ogrodowcyk/Müller, which really should have won the race. But it did not - there was yet another incident.
A personal favorite; the over-engineered Alpina BMW 2002. It retired, of course. The remaining works Capri would finish a second...
...but Zakspeed won the race outright!
