Ford Capri RS 2600 Ford Germany winner ETCC Brno 1972 Dieter Glemser

The new Ford Capri RS 2600 had been the dominant car of the 1971 ETCC. Ford CologneÛs lightweight was down to 940 kg and was therefore 300 kg in advantage over a BMW 2800 CS and even more compared to the Mercedes 300 SEL 6.8 AMG. German Dieter Glemser had won 6 out of 8 races in 1971 and was a deserved champion that year. With this in mind the RS 2600 was bound to be favorit for 1972: BMWÛs new 3.0 CSL Coupe still lacked homologation and a limit to 5000 cc had eliminated Mercedes, Mustang and Camaro from the ETCC rounds of 1972.

Strongest opposition for reigning champion Dieter Glemser therefore came from his new young team mate Jochen Mass hired by Jochen Neerpasch for the 1972 works team. With this driver line-up the blue and white Ford Capri RS 2600 became invincible in ETCC. Although Glemser scored victories at Czech Brno, Salzburg and in Silverstone it was young German talent Jochen Mass who snatched the ETCC title of 1972 for Ford. When mastermind Neerpasch left Ford at the end of 1972 to head for BMW the Capri heyday was over.
