In 1970 Formula 1 drivers had called for boycott of the German GP at the Nürburgring for safety reasons which led to a 20 million DM conversion of the legendary track. But Niki LaudaÛs horrific fire crash in 1976 was the deathblow for the old 23 km Nordschleife. The decision for a modern GP track had been taken but in 1980 budget cuts of the German Government endangered the whole project. A strong alliance of drivers, fans and officials was formed under the banner ÜJa zum NürburgringÛ to give the track a future saying ÜYes to the NürburgringÛ.

Backing from the industry came when BMW Motorsport decided to enter a very special art car for the Nürburgring 1000 km in 1980, round 6 of the World Championship for Makes. The complete body of the works car for Nelson Piquet and Hans-Joachim Stuck was painted with the track outline and the slogan ÜJa zum NürburgringÛ. A strong statement of BMW with massive feedback in a year when motorsports was heavily under fire anyway. The Nürburgring art car won its class and even finished on the podium third overall.
