The AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix 2014 was held 8-10 August at the Nurburgring Circuit in Germany. This year’s Oldtimer featured a race exclusively for BMW automobiles, putting the focus on nearly 20 years of touring car history from the German company ‘Bayerische Motoren Werke’ headquartered in Munich.
The BMW race highlighted several exceptional Bavarian participants. BMW Group Classic brought an array of fantastic vehicles to the ‘Ring’, including a BMW 635 CSI that competed in the first Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) season in 1984. Naturally, the legendary M3 cars caused a sensation in the German Touring Car Championship were also celebrated, in addition to the 2002, M1 Group Four, 320 Group 5 and CSL models. Ex-DTM drivers Johnny Cecotto, Marc Hessel, Leopold Prinz von Bayern and Harald Grohs participated, joined by Marc Surer, who was in charge of the DTM commitments in the early nineties. Furthermore, Hessel and Surer climbed into a 1997 BMW McLaren F1 GTR for the demonstration runs.
