The second clip I am featuring of the 1967 German Grand Prix features just under 4 minutes of footage shot during a practice session from a chase car following Hubert Hanhe in a BMW powered Lola. It is a typical 1960s clip with an upbeat soundtrack and a classic English voiceover. Perhaps my favourite quote is at the entry to Ex Muhle when the narrator says, “…down the dip, over the bridge, and up again. Itâ€™s hairy alright!”
Hahne’s biggest claim to fame came a year earlier, in 1966, when he was the first person to drive a touring car around the Nordschleife in under 10 minutes. When you consider that in the 1967 GP the lead cars were lapping around the low 8 minute mark (see part 3) that really puts Hahne’s touring car time into perspective.
