With a solo drive to victory at the Norisring on July 2, 2017, the AMG Mercedes-Benz C-Class, built 23 years earlier for the 1994 DTM, became the star in historic touring car racing.

Three months and three days later, on October 7, 2017, he is driving his masterclass at the Hockenheimring: game, set and (overall) victory in historic touring car racing, just in front of his (sports driver) friend and teammate Jörg Hatscher.
