The car originates from one of Ford's official racing teams in DTM - Wolf Racing. This car was driven in the DTM in 1989 - the last year Ford and the Sierra took part of the championship. After this season, they were pushed out of their successful racing careers by a change in regulations and mostly continued their careers in the Pacific championships.

Our Sierra is an exception. The car was piloted by Armin Hahne until his serious accident at the Nürburgring in April of that year. The car was destroyed after his head-on collision with Ludwig's Mercedes and it left Hahne seriously injured. However, the car was rebuilt into a new bodywork, which Wolf bought from the rival Eggenberger team (known for its black Texaco cars) and continued until the end of the season with Alan Ferté behind the wheel (the car is unique, because it carries the VIN of a competing team for the above reasons). Armin Hahne has since been behind the wheel only once at the second event at the Nürburgring in the autumn part of the season

The car was sold in 1991 to the Charouz team in the Czech Republic and raced for two years in the European Hill Climb Championship with Josef Michl, Josef Venc and other foreign drivers behind the wheel. It was displayed for a long time at the Charouz Museum of Racing Cars in Lány and was then sold to England. It got to our collection in 2015.
