The new Nürburgring played host to the eight round of the championship. Despite fast practice times, it was foreseeable that the Jaguars were not suited to this track; the heavy cars would run into brake problems.
Most likely favourite had only an eight spot in qualifying: Kelleners and Brancatelli were the fastest BMW behind the Jags, Rovers and Volvos.
Heyer took the lead after the start, but he came in in lap 4 after a stone had torn off a engine belt. Granberg was now in the lead, but soon Percy took over. Granberg disappeared into the pits, and Grohs came in too, without his missing front wheel. Heyer retired the #3 Jag, but continued in Jag #4. Now Hahne (Rover) was in the lead, followed by Allam in another Rover. Halfway through the race, the regular pit stops began, Joosen replacing Hahne, Duez takes Allam’s seat and in third it was now Brancatelli. Quester (fourth) took over from Stuck. Soon after, Quester damaged a rim, dropping him to twelfth. The Rovers got their share of problems too: Soper retired with electronic problems, Joosen brakes a water hose. Calderari had retired his Jaguar with electronic problems as well.
Only one Jaguar remains, driven by Walkinshaw, and though he is up to two seconds a lap faster than anybody else, it is to late for victory. The Jag finishes fifth, behind Kelleners/Brancatelli, Allam/Duez, Gartner/Cudini (BMW) and Hollinger/Giroix. The first Eggenberger BMW victory of his year!
