Leg­ends of the race track.

In 1987 the tour­ing car world cham­pi­onship was born. This tur­bu­lent and pas­sion­ate com­pe­ti­tion gave rise to two leg­endary ri­vals the BMW M3 E30 and the Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500. On the track, there was lit­tle to tell them apart with only one point dif­fer­ence by the end of the sea­son, leav­ing them in 1st and 2nd place. The BMW M3 E30, with Ital­ian driver Roberto Ravaglia, took the win in 1987. How­ever, Klaus Lud­wig, nick­named “King Lud­wig” achieved the same re­sults in his Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 in 1988! The driv­ing force be­hind these vic­to­ries was clear as both ve­hi­cles were equipped with BILSTEIN shock ab­sorbers.
