We present the Ford Capri 2600 RS nº 22 by Alex Soler-Roig and Dieter Glemser winner of the 24 hours of Spa-Francorchamps 1971, which has been so far the only victory for a Spanish driver in this legendary endurance test. Pony cars were affordable sports coupes that had great success in the US in the 1960s. Their main exponent had been the Ford Mustang, and the brand sought to repeat success on the Old Continent with a model adapted to the European market: the Ford Capri.
The first generation of the Ford Capri was marketed with 7 different engines. The 2600 RS model, with a 150 hp engine and lowered height, became the basis for the RS 2600 with which Dieter Glemser and Jochen Mass would win the 1971 and 1972 European Touring Car Championship respectively.
Relive the first victory of a Spanish pilot in the 24 hours of Spa.
