Yea IIRC it was in 86 that it was raced. I wish I knew more about it. Colors make me think it has an Alpina connection

The name on the door says "O. Manthey"

That would be Olaf Manthey:



He switched from the E30 to the 190E 2.5-16 and was probably best known for the white and green Evo II's he ran: the #55 Dekra/Becker car (1992 season) and #17 Bellheimer Lord Pils (1993 season).



He's still racing today...only now it's Porsche GT3: http://www.manthey-racing.de

Cool! I saw that guy recently on a WEC broadcast, first time I'd been able to put a face with the Manthey name. I had no idea about his DTM history. Pretty cool they're coming to Daytona this year along with some other European teams
