Lots of Class!
Bernd Scheneider, after emphatic 1995 DTM championship, went on duty in Silverstone.
Almost identical to the race car, but without the main sponsor’s decals.
The Recaro goes one notch above with harness, drivers name and benz marking

The real Evo.
A nice clean bare finish instead of nicotine laced package, for a change
190 E 2.5-16 Evolution 1 was officially launched in Geneva Motorshow in March 1989.
A total of 502 EVO1 were produced to qualify for DTM.
The first one made to Mainz-Finthen airport circuit on 14 May 1989 and went literally flying.
In the hands of Roland Asch, EVO1 won the race on its debut.
In 1990, Mercedes enters 8 cars under 3 teams: AMG, Snobeck and MS-racing.
To fend off further challenges from Audi V8 4WD and 2.5L M3, Evo 2 was later introduced in the middle of 1990 season to replace this Evo.
One of the good references I have.
Complete with boxed rearwing and telemetry cables running into the car.
Was dumbfounded to learn that Minichamps did not provide rollcages.
Well, I find ways to create them.

All the sudden, I manage to find time these days.
Winning Le Mans on its first attempt is no fluke.
Driven by Bscher, it flies to China in a different skin as oppose to the more common West scheme while racing in Europe.
But Davidoff cigarettes? They should taste as good as their perfume scents...

The one I am not very familiar with. Even decal package does not give clearer indication of which year is.
Renault 5 Europa Cup, as I heard has been first organized by Renault Netherlands. It was however, been held mainly in Zandvoort, Zolder and Nogaro.
Later, it spreaded to all over Europe in no time.
This car belongs to an unassuming John Vox, who is one of the regular participants.

LPU 772, one of the earliest RS Cosworth that has been prepared by Belgian RAS Sports.
Intriguing livery which has been a perfect fit on Escort, as good as, if not better than those been conceptualized on M3 before.
The race was won by Gustavo Trelles in Charro Delta HF Integral though.
Reconstructed from IXO with decal from Spain, where else it could possibly be.
Photos don’t really do justice. My camera is an outlaw. Poor thing.
Couldn't believe it is already about 2 months into 2012. Football makes me forget all other things. More true if your team is winning big.
