The 1987 200 Meilen von Nürnberg was the sixth round of the 1987 World Sports-Prototype Championship, known as the ADAC Norisring Trophäe, as well as the second round of the 1987 German Supercup, known as the Bilstein Cup. It took place at the Norisring temporary street circuit, West Germany on June 28, 1987.

FormatEdit

The Norisring 200 Miles combined several competitors from the World Championship as well as a majority of entrants from the German Supercup championship. The event was run as two separate races, each running for 100 miles (77 laps). The first race would consist of the entire field, and points for the German Supercup championship were awarded based on the results of this first race.

Cars which did not complete the first race, either due to accidents or mechanical failures, were not allowed to compete in the second race. Those which remained started in the same position in which they had finished the first race, and then completed the second 100-mile (160 km) race. The result of this race however did not count towards the Supercup. Instead, the laps totals from the two races were combined in order to determine an overall race winner, which earned points in the World Championship.

All teams consisted of two drivers, each of which ran one race apiece. Only the driver in the first race earned points in the Supercup, while both drivers earned points in the World Championship.
