1977 - 24 uur / hours Le Mans
Renault was aarzelend begonnen aan hun turbo avontuur. In 1976 schreven ze één auto in op Le Mans die veruit de snelste was in kwalificatie maar in de race geen potten kon breken. 1977 Moest het jaar worden, met vier auto's en een keur aan topcoureurs was het Franse merk favoriet voor de zege. Maar Jacky Ickx zou de beste race van zijn leven rijden en het Franse feest verpesten.

Renault was in Le Mans in 1976 with only one car. It took pole by a margin but it soon retired. In 1977 The French were back with four cars and a line up of top drivers. They took pole again and were favorite. But Jacky Ickx drove the best race ever and spoiled the French party.

1977 - 24 uur / hours Daytona
De 24-uurs race van Daytona telde mee voor het wereldkampioenschap merken, maar doordat Porsche en Renault zich toelegden op Le Mans en Alfa Romeo de stap naar de USA niet maakte, was de race een onderonsje tussen de overwegend Amerikaanse teams. Porsche was het best vertegenwoordigd en won.

The 1977 Daytona 24 hour race was the opening for the world championship for makes. But Porsche and Renault focussed on Le Mans and Alfa Romeo didn't make the trip to the USA. So the race turned out to be a GT race with mostly American teams.

1977 - DRM (Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft)
Met de introductie van de groep 5 categorie, werd het WK en het DRM nieuw leven ingeblazen. In het DRM werden twee races gereden: Divisie I met de dikke Porsche turbo's en Divisie II tot twee liter, met vooral BMW 2002, 320i en Ford Escorts.

With the group 5 rules the German Championship became even more attractive. Two races were held: Division I for the big GT's such as Porsche turbo and Division II with lots of BMW's and Ford Escorts.
