Some infos to the real DRM Championship :

The Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft with all the group 5 cars, was a huge magnet foraudiences at the end of the late 70´s and early 80´s. Drivers like Hans Heyer, Hans Joachim Stuck, Rolf Stommelen, Harald Ertl made this race series. And also internationally known.

As a small child I was standing at the edge of the track, watching these monsters with big eyes, this time went by too fast. The memories are only a few and faded. Luckily ISI created an excellent platform To race worldwide with these machines around the virtual racetracks , bringing the old cars with a “little” effort back to life.

Championship Infos from Wikipedia :

Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft (translated as German Racing Championship) or simply DRM as it was known, was a touring car and Sportscar racing series. It is regarded as a predecessor of the current DTM as Germany’s top national series.

The DRM began in 1972 as a Group 2 touring car and Group 4 GT racing series for cars like (BMW 2002) and (BMW Coupé), in addition to the Deutsche Rundstrecken-Meisterschaft (de) (German circuit racing saloon car championship). In these years, the same or similar cars were also entered in the European Touring Car Championship.

Races were run separately as big Division 1 (for 2 to 4 liter) and small Division 2 (under 2 liter) in a sprint format.

In 1977, Group 5 cars were admitted into the series, making the series better supported with Gr.5 cars than the World Championship of Makes they were intended for. These fast and spectacular turbocharged cars with wide fenders and wings had many fans. Especially the Porsche 935 outpowered F1 cars. During common testing sessions at Circuit Paul Ricard, 935 passed them on the long Mistral straight.

In 1979, the Rennsport Trophäe (Racing Trophy) was introduced for the cheaper original series protagonists, the Group 2 and 4 cars. It consisted of combined races with the DRM until 1981.

In 1982, following the FIA rule changes, new Group C sportscars (along with existing Group 6) replaced the Group 5 machinery at the renamed International Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft. Meanwhile, the Rennsport Trophäe held separate races and events in 1982 and 1983, except for the 1982 ADAC Eifelrennen at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

In 1984, with just three races held, organisers used three WEC (World Endurance Championship) races as additional IDRM point races. Also, the Rennsport Trophäe was replaced by the DPM (Deutsche Produktionswagen Meisterschaft), run with Group A cars.

1985 was the final year of the now called DSM (Deutsche Sportwagen Meisterschaft), with just one race was held at Norisring, the rest of them held in conjunction with the popular Interserie. This meant CanAm entered from the latter series, as it had always been, had to be counted for points

The series would be replaced by the Group C-only Supercup in 1986. At that time, the less expensive DTM had taken over as Germany’s most important racing series.

Since 2005 the AvD the AvD organizes a “Revival Deutsche Rennsportmeisterschaft” race at his great “Oldtimer Grand Prix”.

9 Thoughts to “DRM Revival Mod v2.0b”

  1. Beco1

    Now I have CTD with Kremer Porsche 935

    vehgfx.cpp 2587: Entered VehGraphics::Init(GAMEDATA\TEAMS\DRM\PORSCHE 935 TURBO\KREMER\..\PORSCHE_935_FACTORY_BBS.CAS)
    vehgfx.cpp 2631: Unable to read USERDATA\LOG\vehgen.scn: Error loading global material INT_DRIVER_STYLE00
    vehgfx.cpp 2684: Could not find instance “SLOT000”

    Maybe worth a look again!? Thx!

  2. Beco1

    Since this is such an amazing mod actually I wanna ask if others have CTD too when loading the Capri!? Trace says sth. with “WCWindow” not loading on that car. Well just reporting and maybe things can be looked into if there are issues indeed – I think it’s worthwhile.Thank you.

      Hi Beco1! I took a quick look, and I fixed the CTD, which was caused by an incompatible material. Here you have the fix:


      1. modeewy

        Just want to point that I’m not the author of this or any of this site mods, I just want to help.

      2. Beco1

        Which seems to work! Wow! Thx so much! 🙂 Another question though if I may and once we’re at it – do you think you could also pls fix the annoying “dirty, blurry” windows in all cars!? That is pretty annoying imo especially at night and on longer stints. Thx if maybe you can have a look at that issue too. I think it a very nice mod, a musthave even and so legendary. Look at them amazing cars and the awesome sounds. Good ol’ days. 🙂

        1. modeewy

          If you are referring to the dirtscreen, you can disable it for every car in the PLR file. Search Windscreen dirt buildup=”1″, and set it to 0.

        2. hello beco, that sounds more like an individual graphics problem.

          I have loaded all Capri teams into the game individually and also completely with other vehicles, without errors / crashes. Since the problem in your case obviously has something to do with the transparency of the windows (you also had the problem with the Audi R18), this indicates a graphics problem.

          Which PC hardware / software do you use for GTR2? Please list your graphics card, driver, operating system (also whether 32 or 64 bit). Is this a newer PC (maximum 5 years old) or older?

          For your reference, I’ll list my components/settings with which everything is displayed correctly in GTR2:

          OS : Windows10 64bit
          Graphics card : MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
          Graphics driver : Nvidia 496.76

          GTR2 configuration (GTR2Config.exe) :

          Graphics driver : GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
          Resolution : 2560 x 1440 32-bit
          Frame rate : 59Hz
          Shader Level : Auto
          Full screen anti-aliasing : 4

          Graphic setting in GTR2: everything on full (maximum)

          In the GTR2 main directory there is a file called “sysinfo.txt” – check if the information matches your settings / hardware – if you e.g. replace the hardware, you also have to adjust the graphics settings in the game.


          1. Beco1

            Hi! My PC is good, even very good for this old game. This window prob on that mod is imo not PC related. Just test and see for yourself pls. I will now try the hint modeewy gives and report back. I will also look for entries of dirtscreen /rainscreen like it helped with the Audi. Thank you.

  3. monchobullet

    – Just a report: Mirrors shows distorted images (from cars of behind), need some fix.

    Thank you for share, another great work.
