This is the final piece of footage from the 1967 German Grand Prix I’ll be posting and I have saved the best for last. There are so many highlights, but to name a few check out Denny Hulme getting airborne at Flugplatz and I liked the refuelling method in the pits, very casual! The track itself appears to be nothing more than a back road lined by hedges with no armco and run off as we would expect to see on a modern day F1 circuit.
The start of the clip also shows the old south curve quite well. This was lost in the early 80s when the current Grand Prix track was developed. The best lap time in the clip is 8:15, pretty good going for over 40 years ago.
And the winner? Well, there is an Australian connection, but that’s enough from me, best to let the clip itself do the talking.
