Standard and GTS Cars until 1976+1981
Touring Cars and GTS, more than 1300cc up to 1976 – Danish Championship
The larger capacity cars from 1971 to 1976 are the class for the big boys and among spectators they are extremely popular. It may be due to the fact that the touring cars present themselves almost as ordinary 4-door saloons. However, they are heavily modified with cages, highly tuned motors and refined geometry.
The dominant cars are the Opel Kadett GT-E, Ford Escort RS 1600 and the 2000 with the famous BDA engine. In Denmark, Erik Høyer holds many legendary victories. Among the GT cars the most iconic is the Porsche 911, presented for the first time in 1963 and still for more than forty years in production, with a 6 cylinder boxer delivering 130HP. As it weighed in at only 1080 kg it had a pretty good acceleration.
Another legendary car is the Lotus Elan. 8,500 Lotus Elans were produced in the period 1964-1973. With a highly effective twin-cam 1600 liter engine and a low weight glass fiber body it had and still has lot to give its driver.
