Austrian ace Dieter Quester made a return to the European Touring Car Championship in 1977 and dominated proceedings by taking the title and five wins.

It was Quester’s third ETCC Championship, following his his triumphs in ’68 and ’69 at the wheel of a BMW 2002.

It was hard to miss the green machine, which was sponsored by the popular Austrian beer Gosser, and run by the Alpina Team.

A BMW icon, Quester’s  motorsports career spanned more than four decades, featuring success in F2, touring cars and sportscar racing. The Vienna born racer has participated in over 50, 24 hour events.
