After one years’ absence, the Grosser Preis der Tourenwagen was back on the calendar. 96 cars took the start, but many of them were Group 1B cars which were allowed in the race, but of course could not get any ETCC points.
The first five races so far had been won by the BMW Italia pair of Kelleners and Grano, then Jaguar won and the last race had been won by a Czech BMW. But the pair still won points at each race, and here at the Nürburgring they finished third, enough to clinch the championship already, the third title for each of them.
Here at the classic track, the Jaguar was unbeatable, even for the works car of Stuck and Quester - they had a short lead when the Jag had to pit, but soon it was the Green Brit again at front. The biggest part in the victory was for Walkinshaw; he drove for nearly five hours!
Initially, the BMW Italia car was second ahead of the Motorsport car, but Grano had to let Quester go and then he got himself a puncture - so third was the optimum here, and as said enough for the title.
The Group 1B cars played a marginal role; the Gartmann Capri, second in practice, held second in the race for a while and could have finished fifth when Ludwig hadn’t ranout of fuel in the last lap.
Division 2 was won by Seikel and Schörg (Audi coupé) after Bergmeister had retired his car and the then leading Alfa Romeo of Micangeli/de Dryver slowed with fuel feed problems.
