After the Wunstorf disaster, Ludwig thought it was time for the Evo 2, the Benz with the big rear wing. Two cars were ready in time for the “A” team of Ludwig and Thiim, with apart from the dramatic aerodynamics (on the underside as well) a revised engine. It seemed the right thing to do: Ludwig claimed pole, three seconds ahead of Thiim and the rest of the field. But it came to nothing: the fuel pump of Ludwig’s car stopped working while Thiim had an accident in the Fuchsröhre, because of a blown tire. Starting from behind, Ludwig climbed his way up the field to have a blown rear tire as well. BMW on the other hand had another 1-2-3 with Bigazzi: Laffite, Winkelhock and Soper, the latter the only man with title chances, but BMW refused to let Soper win at the expense of his teammates. Soper was disappointed: he knew that he probably would finish race 2 because of a water leak, and while leading race 2 he had to retire. Cecotto, after an engine failure in race 1, drove to third in race 2, behind two unexpected men: Biela and Kreutzpointner. The Mercedes win was a lucky one, since leader Laffite got misfires, on top of a lost front spoiler, courtesy of Soper.
The Nürburgring is a dangerous place; Schübel did not even enter, while Giroix had a massive crash after hitting the lost wheel of van Ommen. Audi had many problems and never figured, but the Opel Omega had a good weekend: ninth in race 1, fifth in race 2 and a seventh overall in the 24 hour race
