The 1987 Grand Prix Brno was the sixth round of the inaugural World Touring Car Championship. The race was held for cars eligible for Group A touring car regulations. It was held on August 16, 1987, at the Masaryk Circuit, in Brno, Czechoslovakia.

The race was won by the Eggenberger Motorsport pairing of Klaus Ludwig and Klaus Niedzwiedz. They drove the newly homologated Ford Sierra RS500, which proved much faster and far more reliable than the Ford Sierra RS Cosworths the team had been using to that point of the season.

Cars were divided into three classes based on engine capacity:

  • Division 1: 1-1600cc
  • Division 2: 1601-2500cc
