THE GERMAN GRAND PRIX

F,4eNTRIES at ordinary fees for the German Grand Prix which is to be run on the Nuerburg Ring on lqt,h July promise a large measure of success for this important race. In the big car class no fewer than six Mercedes have been entered, their drivers being Rudolf Caracciola, Hans von Stuck, Boris Ivanowski, Spandel, von Branchitsch and another not as yet specified. Against them are ranged nine Bugattis, consisting of the official team of four cars, which will probably be the new 5-litre machines, driven by Louis Chiron, Achille Varzi, Albert Divo and Guy Bouriat, and five

amateur entries made by von Morgen, Burggaller, Prince von Leiningen, Lehoux and another as yet unnamed. Four Maseratis will represent Italy, one of them being driven by Sir Henry Birkin., and the others probably by Rene Dreyfus, Fagioli and Biondetti.

In the 1,100 c.c. division England will be represented by an Austin Seven, which will be matched against three D.K.W. cars and an Amilcar. In view of the exciting nature of the Nuerburg Ring, which is a specially constructed mountainous road circuit, the race should be of outstanding interest.
