Modding enthusiast Sovers has been working on his Zakspeed Escort MK2 GR.5 DRM for Assetto Corsa. Sovers has been spending all his spare time working on the car, and needs a break, but decided to release the WIP car in its present version 0.2.  For the moment, the mod has no LOD’s , and uses standard placeholder sounds. Sovers stated that he will also build a new and authentic interior for the car.

The fast and spectacular turbocharged DRM cars where raced from 1972 to 1985. The DRM championship was regarded as one of the most important German motor racing series of its time. Running on tracks such as the Nurburgring, Hockenheimring, Norisring and the Belgian Circuit Zolder.
