Alas, on that occasion I had to be elsewhere, but from time to time I cast my thoughts...

IH IE IR IE and 1111-1 IE IR IE By -clinshaft" High-Speed " Black Out Mention of Avus reminds me of a pretty problem which might conceivably occur in future on the Berlin circuit.

Nuvolari the master

Classic victory in the German G.P. Von Brauchitsch’s proverbial bad luck. Disappointment of vast crowd There have been many examples of the glorious uncertainty of motor-racing, but none more striking than the last lap of the 1935 German Grand Prix. To the 250,000 spectators who lined the Nurburg Ring a German victory was a foregone conclusion, and yet Nuvolari snatched the lead from von...

Mine was at Brooldands in 1927, after which I saw most of the races, long and short, there and at Donington, etc, including the unforgettable grands prix at the Derby track when the German cars dominated as few spectators had seen before.
