AUTO UNION AGAIN ACTIVE IN RACES, RALLIES AND AUTOCROSS
Auto Union will field a strong side in British motor sporting events for 1962. In production saloon car racing, former Miniexponent John Aley will be driving a D.K.W. 800 tuned by German expert Albrecht Mantzel. The marque will also be represented in National rallies, sprint, autocross and driving test events by six well-known drivers.
Ken Piper of Portsmouth will be driving in both rallies and autocross and in some rallies will be competing against his navigator on the R.A.C. Rally, M. 0. A. Ford, who has now bought a D.K.W. Junior. Former B.M.C. and Triumph works team member Vic Elford will be driving a D.K.W. 800S in all National and a number of restricted rallies. Leo V. Cruttendon of Brighton, at present unofficial leader in the Rally Championship for the Association of Central Southern Motor Clubs, is also using a D.K.W. 800.
Finally, Terry Lewis will be using a D.K.W. at all major driving test meetings this year, and Charles Russell-Scarr of Auto Union (G.B.) Ltd. will be turning out for most hill-climbs and sprints with a 1,o0o-c.c.-engirted Junior.
