Obscure Formula Junior Race

If Kleeblatt was not a place as such, but just a reference to the type of circuit, where was the race held? Somewhere in East Germany perhaps?
(Please don't get the impression I'm knocking Paul Sheldon's work. His books remain the most treasured of all in my collection.)

Many thanks for answering my problem.........and also for bringing this wonderful site to my attention. I suspect that I am going to spend many hours going through their data. You say that Staaken is a few miles west of Berlin. I assume that it was in East Germany until '89. Is that correct?

How about it Michael?
P.S. Yes, the border 'Iron Curtain' was lifted July of 1990. I was there and won't forget it.[p][Edited by Hans Etzrodt on 10-28-2000]

Thanks for alerting us to the book, which I hadn't noticed on the site. I have sent for it, but as they don't accept credit cards for some reason or another it may take a while to arrive.

As for the Staaken-Kleeblatt, I've no roadmap handy. I checked "Auto, Motor und Sport" and also got nil answer. But I would imagine that an Autobahn was built in the meantime, how else would you explain the name?

In order to read the site in English, use a translation search engine like 'Babelfish'. But be warned, if you are like me I spent hours on the site......
Also, make sure you have 'Adobe Acrobat reader' installed on your computer - for when you want to print data from the site. I consumed a rather large quantity of paper as well as a large part of a printer ink cartridge on this site.....
