I missed this race because I had to deal with some annoying burocratic issues. But have to notice that in 1979 only one of the cars of the mod was still racing that year: the BMW 3.0 CSL. Both Fords were already the Mk.II, the Escort was a Gr.2 develpped by Zakspeed and the Capri was a Gr.1B. Alfa Romeo had a couple of appearances (not elegible to score points) with a gr.5 Alfetta Turbo, while they were developping the GTV for next year. BMW was starting to race the 320i gr.2and Audi 80 raced both in gr.1 and in gr.2.
Some races ran together for ETCC and DRM, but group 5 cars were not ellegible to score points. Hope I'm not forgetting any car.
A veritable MAJOR FONT of knowledge Luis Thanks for sharing that information with us. I remember the Grp2 BMW320 fondly, which is why I always enjoyed running the mod in rF1, even if I didn't usually do that well in them!
Hope to see you on track soon, it's been way too long.....
As I said, missed the last one because went with my brother to take care of burocratic stuff still related to my Father's death, been absent for a while be cause of my Mom's disease till she too passed away. Now I'm ready to get back, even if I may miss one or another for the same reason I missed the opener.
Sorry to hear about your mother Luis, I do remember how difficult it was for you earlier this year
