Season Finals in the Eifel

The Nuerburgring is the only race track appearing twice on the Super-Touring cup of 1997. However, the final event is not held on the full Grand Prix circuit. The cars will avoid the Muellenbach loop by making a quick right turn a few hundred meters after the Castrol-S.

In 1996, Emanuele already had the title in the sack. Highly motivated as he is, he still gave it the best and won both the sprint and the race.

Good Opportunities to Overtake

For the Quattro, chances are better on this shorter circuit than on the Grand Prix course. Leaving out the Muellenbach loop eliminates a deciding long full throttle stretch right after the Dunlop turn, and the short connection is a good opportunity to pass other cars.
