Munich/Spielberg. BMW Group Classic will compete with a BMW 320 Group 5 in the “DRM Revival” at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg being held by DTM Classic from 3 – 5 September 2021. It was possible to gain Marc Surer (CH) as the driver who will race the vehicle with the classic “BMW Junior Team” design of 1977.
Marc Surer was a member of the “BMW Junior Team”, which was established at that time, and can hardly wait to step on the gas in Spielberg: “Some 44 years after starting with the BMW 320 Group 5 as a member of the BMW Junior Team in Zolder, it is a very special experience for me to be amongst the competitors at the DRM Revival.”
He will be accompanied by the current BMW Juniors Dan Harper, Max Hesse and Neil Verhagen. The initiator of BMW Junior Team of 1977, Jochen Neerpasch, does not intend to miss the spectacle and will also be attending the event.
For Norbert Knerr, racing manager of BMW Group Classic, the line-up is historic bridge building: “We couldn’t have found a better framework to deploy the BMW 320 Group 5. To see Marc Surer at the wheel of his 1977 vehicle at the DRM Revival in Spielberg, accompanied by the current BMW juniors and Jochen Neerpasch, is definitely an occasion that couldn’t be more fitting and emotional.”
The “DRM Revival” organised by DTM Classic will take place during the DTM Racing Weekend at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg/Austria, being held from 3 to 5 September. The historic vehicles of the Divisions 1 and 2 will, in addition to training and qualifying events, also compete in two races.
