50 years Zakspeed
2018 sees Zakspeed celebrating its 50th anniversary. Erich Zakowski’s founding of the company in 1968 marked the beginning of the success story of this traditional company. With 480 victories and 22 national and international Championships Zakspeed is one of the most successful German racing teams. Unforgettable memories include the great Zakspeed successes with the Escort and Capri, successes in the ITC series and the DTM. Zakspeed also faced the challenge of Formula 1 and developed their own car in the 1980s. The only other team able to do so was Ferrari. Zakspeed was also able to celebrate great successes in the endurance races.
Amongst the many victories are the legendary 24-hour Nürburgring race victories which Zakspeed won in 1999, 2001 and 2002 with the Chrysler Viper. Today, the commitment is mainly to international and historic racing. Since 2014 the team is permanently represented in the ADAC GT Masters. Where they in 2015 were able to take the championship title. Zakspeed will once again compete in the ADAC GT Masters in the anniversary year. For 50 years, the name Zakspeed has stood for successful motorsport, exclusive events and incentives as well as the detailed restoration of historic vehicles and their usage in race events.
