I very much enjoyed the article ‘Dire straights’ by Adam Cooper in the October issue.
One oft-repeated error was however made regarding the Avus track in Berlin. The circuit was not shortened after the war because part of it was in the Soviet part of Berlin or Germany. In fact it was split between the American and British sectors and the reason for shortening was purely on financial grounds. This is confirmed by the book Die Avus I’m Ruckspiegel published in 1987.
