Luigi Cimarosti, Nürburgring, 1977

In 1977, BMW was well-represented in the European fight for title honors. Luigi Cimarosti (left, in the open door of striped car number 6, alongside subsequent European multiple champion Umberto Grano) ran these gaily-painted CSLs. Here, the cars are awaiting practice at the Nürburgring with Jean Xhenceval in the front car and Eddy Joosen in the second team car. (Strahle, Germany, 1977)
