Reigning DRM Champion Hans Heyer continued with Zakspeed Ford for 1977 to defend his title in a brand new division 2 wide body Group 5 Ford Escort II RS. But that year opposition in the 2-litre class had grown deliberately with the arrival of Jochen Neerpasch's BMW Junior Team where Marc Surer, Eddie Cheever and Manfred Winkelhock had been contracted to race the works BMW 320. With 275 hp the Zakspeed Ford Escort lacked around 20 hp against the BMW but experienced and shrewd Heyer pushed his new Group 5 car to the ultimate limits.

The fight Zakspeed Ford vs. BMW, Heyer vs. the BMW Junior Team armada saw its inglorious culmination at the Norisring where the division 2 cars converted the South German city circuit into a battlefield. Surer and Cheever attacked the Ford Escort so heavily in the race that poor Heyer's car was literally torn to shreds. After numerous collisions and spins Hans Heyer still finished 4th with his totally tattered Mampe Escort. Until today the Norisring race of 1977 is regarded as the most scandalous German touring car race of all times.
