1985 Norisring Trophae - Porsche 956

Norisring was always a special place for me - I won a lot of races there – so I'd have to pick one of those wins as the best moment from my time in Group C. In 1985 I didn't have a drive, but I really wanted to do the race. I found a car, one of the first customer 956s, and found my own sponsors.
