Back to the the ‘golden’ years of DTM with the Tourenwagen Legenden
In its heyday touring car racing was just as popular as Formula One. Entire families flocked to the racetrack to watch ferocious racing with heavily tuned versions of their family saloon car. The British and German touring car championships were the most successful. The Tourenwagen Legenden celebrate the ‘golden’ years of DTM Touringcar racing, boasting some of DTM’s finest and most successful racing cars, like the Mercedes Benz C-Class DTM, Opel Calibra DTM and Alfa Romeo 155 V6 DTM. These 500 horsepower-strong factory family saloons were the talk of the town in the mid-90s. These were arguably the most exciting times in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft with team budgets exceeding one hundred million Reichsmarks, leading to the development of some of the most advanced racing touring cars ever built.
Next to the DTM division the Tourenwagen Legenden sports three additional divisions including one for the ‘Evolution’ models, like the Ford Sierra Cosworth, raced from 1990 to 1993, a division for 80s street-legal touring cars like the Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.3 16v, Volvo 240 Turbo, Opel Astra GSI and a division for ‘Supertourer’raced between 1993 and 2000 like the Renault Laguna.
