More about the year 1979
The hot tip comes from Hajo Friedrichs, the Head of Sport at the state ZDF television channel — why not concentrate on the women and make the weaker sex stronger? Dieter Fischer consults the tournament patron Prof Dr “Ferry” Porsche and decides in favour of simplicity — women only. And the ladies don’t need to be asked twice. The female world elite duly make their way to sleepy Filderstadt. Up for grabs as the main prize is a Porsche 924 Turbo — who could possible say no? Tracy Austin, the winner of the previous tournament, also enters the fray in the battle for the win and the car. And is again victorious — after winning the final against Martina, the young American is able to call a second Porsche her own.
