Sierra RS Cosworth
Robb Gravett Touring Car Recreation

In August 1987, the Sierra RS500 Cosworth was homologated with a larger turbo, new rear deck spoiler and an extra 100 horsepower. Fords took pole position in all the remaining six 1987 World Touring Car Championship events, and was first over the finish line in four of them. Disqualification of the works Eggenberger Motorsport cars from the 1987 Bathurst 1000 in Australia for wheel arch panel irregularities deprived Klaus Ludwig and Klaus Niedzwiedz of the world championship. The Eggenberger Motorsport team did however claim the entrants' prize. Eggenberger won the 1989 Spa 24 HoursRobb Gravett won the 1990 British Touring Car Championship in a RS500. Essentially the Evolution RS500 was the creation of Eggenberger who insisted the editions he proposed for the Evolution would make the Sierra a winner and dominate touring car racing around the world.
