24 hours Spa Francorchamps 1971
The 1971 24 hours of Spa Francorchamps was the first race in which the AMG team took part since its conception in 1967. The AMG 300 SEL 6.8L was driven by Hans Heyer and by Clemens Schickentanz and considered an outsider rather than an outright challenger. Cars taking place in this gruelling 24 hrs race were the Ford Capri RS, the BMW 2800 CS, the Chevrolet Camaro, the Opel Commodore and de Alfa Romeo GTA. The lone AMG Mercedes qualified surprisingly 5th during qualifying where pole was taken by the Chevrolet Camaro driven by Ivo Grauls and Peter Hoffmann. Second in qualifying was the Alpina BMW 2800CS driven by Niki Lauda and Gérard Larousse. Other famous drivers taking part in this edition were Hans-Joachim Stuck, Jochen Mass, Toine Hezemans, Willy Kauhsen, Achim Warmbold en Rainer Braun. After a gruelling race hit by thunderstorms during the night the race was won by the Ford Capri RS of Dieter Glemser with the lone AMG Mercedes finishing second. A sensation for this new outfit.
