On the extreme bank of AVUS’s north bend, Auto Union’s Bernd Rosemeyer aggressively pursues the lead of Mercedes-Benz’s Rudolf Caracciola.
Since the race did not count toward the championship, non-regulation Grand Prix cars were allowed to take part. Although Caracciola won the race, it was Rosemeyer’s 4:11.2 lap time at an average speed of 276.39 kilometers per hour that made the history books.
Rosemeyer’s record remained unbroken for thirty-four years.
