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.

The Austrian Grand Prix

— The Lauda touch  Osterreichring, Knittelfeld, August 19th If you have the opportunity of driving round the Osterreichring in any sort of car you can easily see why any self-respecting racing driver just loves to race on the circuit. It would be hard to make a choice between the Austrian GP circuit and the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium, either for exhilaration, satisfaction or sheer...

With travel and work schedules back to normal after the long trips away to the USA and Canada the teams arrived at Hockenheim in good order.

The German Grand Prix — Magnificent McLarens

Hockenheimring, August 5th With the opening of the new Motodrome in the Eifel Mountains, to replace the legendary Nurburgring, there was a feeling at the Hockenheimring that 1984 might see the last German Grand Prix to be held there.
