Retro Legends...
A Melkus RS1000 chases a Trabant 601 RS during the Freddy Kottulinsky Revival 2017 at the Schleizer Dreieck. With a bit editing I let the photo look like it's taken on Film in the 1970s. 
This year the Freddy Kottulinsky Revival will take place on the weekend 6th - 8th July at the Schleizer Dreieck, Thuringia, Germany. I will be there, I hope you too.

He had temperament.
Some say that he often parked his BRM in 1958 because it was to slow. But I can't say if this is true.

A cheesecake disaster...
24h of Le Mans 1988. The German reporters Rainer Braun & the late Gustav Brüsing should commentate the race for SAT-1.
Their cabin was very tight, they had to share with Screensport.
Prior the race it wasn't much time, so they only could eat some cheesecake & bratwurst. Rainer got sick in the evening, but used some medicine to stop the abdominal pain.
Just before the start Rainer got black in mind & fell in fainting. Co-commentator Brüsing reacted quickly, and took over the greetings & commentaries. After the start phase Gustav brought Rainer to the Porsche team doctor Georg "Schorsch" Huber.
Dr. Huber diagnosed a salmonella poisoning. Braun got a bed in the Porsche camp & Huber connected him to the drip. Every 15 min he proofed pulse & blood pressure. Huber also brought him to the toilets. Once he puke on the way. Bob Wollek (Porsche pilot), who didn't recognised Rainer, said: "...that now the drunk have to puke out at Porsche."
Towards midnight the condition of Rainer got worse.
If it doesn't get better, Dr. Huber would bring him to the Le Mans hospital.
Then Rainer woke up, because somebody shouted angrily. It was Porsche chief executive officer Heinz Branitzki, who actually should sleep in this bed.
On Sunday morning Rainer wanted to be back in the commentary cabin, but Huber refused to let him go.
But Rainer was allowed to commentate the last hour of the race (when the Jags won). Doc stand beside him with the emergency bag.
Brüsing organized him a quick return to home. A hour after the finish he traveled back in the Arcus-plane of Bilstein.
After 2 weeks Rainer was back in old conditions.
Later Schorsch Huber told Rainer that his conditions were life-threatening & the he thought that it would be irresponsible to stay with him at the racetrack. 
Huber got a box with 6 bottles of wine as thank. 📷 by : unknown

■R.I.P. Rudi■
On Saturday, 10th February 2018, Rudi Eggenberger has passed away. The former Swiss Racingdriver & team owner died 2 days after his 79th birthday.
●
Here is the #7 Ford Sierra RS 500 of Ford Texaco Racing Team /Eggenberger Motorsport during 1987 James Hardie 1000 at the Mount Panorama circuit. 
The car was driven by Klaus Niedzwiedz / Klaus Ludwig. They finished second behind their teammates Steve Soper/ Pierre Dieudonné. But both cars were disqualified, so Peter McLeod/ David Parsons/ Jon Crooke/ Peter Brock got the victory in their Holden VL Commodore SS Group A.
The 2 Klaus lost the first World Touring Car Championship in 1987 by one point at the end of the season.
The reason for the disqualification were illegal car parts.
