European Touring Car Championship

The season so far: seven wins to Jaguar, two to BMW, Toyota, Rover and Volvo getting competitive. . . Ever since the creation of Group A racing, the once-moribund ETC series (formerly Group 2, unattractive to manufacturers) has begun to come to life.

Front-Cover Picture

Dieter Quester rounds La Source with the works BMW 3.0 CSL with which he and Toine Hezemans won the Spa 24-Hour Race. They finished 15 laps of the scenic 14.1km. Spa-Francorchamps circuit ahead of the second-placed works Capri of Jochen Mass/John Fitzpatrick. Note the new front and rear spoilers, now fitted to production CSLs, which have made the BMWs considerably faster than the works Capris.

Thoughts that Peterson might be toppled from his domination of the Formula Two scene were high after the qualifying round at Albi in central southern France a fortnight before the Italian event...
