    Until yesterday, nobody in our club did know this before some family pictures was found and in the background it was something that looked like a Zakspeed Gr5 car.
    The show was called Motor Action 79, as you guess this was in 1979 and the show was held in Oslo in October that year.
    Some more digging it was infact a real Zakspeed Capri, namely the Sachs Divison 2 car which won 8 out of 10 races that year.

    And here is a picture of it outside Oslo city hall along some other cars on their way to the show.
    The others being the BMW M1 and 3x Bertone Concept cars.

    And on behalf of the club I have given the task to investigate this further to see if I can find more relevant info about this.
    Who made it possible etc.

    It must have been a mean feet just getting up there, as the ride height is non existent on the Zakspeed, I wonder how many chips were in the front spoiler!
