In 1980 Hans Joachim Stuck quit driving Formula 1 cars to focus on the German Motor Racing Championship (DRM). He found the perfect partner in the BMW 320 Turbo flat-build version. Nine of these cars with 1.4-litre turbo engines and around 450 hp dominated races, defeating the classic induction engine cars. Back in 1980, the smaller car division race at the Norisring was a major event. That year, on lap 6 Hans Heyer's Lancia Beta Montecarlo broke its brake discs, turned over many times and ended up in pieces. Stuck drove this BMW to an overall 2nd place at the end of the season.
