Emil Frankl is mentioned on Leif Snellman's page: http://www.kolumbus....snellman/d3.htm

I quote:

Emil Frankl (A)
- 3 Jun 1934
Austrian driver Frankl started in the Eifel GP 1934 with an Bugatti. Sadly he was involved in a start crash and succumbed to his injures.

1934: DNF Eifel GP

Sheldon records what seems to have been Wustrow's last International (non-)appearance in the 1937 Prix de Berne. He entered a Bugatti T37A - DNA.

A nicely obscure list, Andrzej. Jellen was fairly well known internationally, but none of the others achieved very much.
My first reference to Emil Frankl is in the 21/9/29 Ecce Homo hillclimb (Czechoslovakia) where he drove a Steyr and made second-FTD to Stuck (Austro-Daimler). In 1931 he contested local Austrian events (no results known to me) with a Bugatti 37A, and also raced in the international voiturette events at Avus 2/8 (unplaced) and Brno 27/9 (fourth). I have no reference to him after that until the 1934 Eifelrennen when, again driving a Bugatti, he crashed fatally.
His brother Oskar Frankl had raced a BMW without success in the 1930 Masaryk voiturette race. I think either or both of them were ex-motorcyclists.
Hans Muschik was fourth in the 7/6/31 Lwow sportscar race with a 1500cc Bugatti, and reappears in 1935, when he was fourth in the 2-litre class of the 4/8 Grossglockner hillclimb, and won his class in the Dreihotter hillclimb.
The only mention I have found of Ostermuth (I have it Ostenuth) is in the 1930 Masarykuv Okruh, in which he drove an Amilcar to seventh place.
Hubert Sachsel won the 1500 class in the 15/9/29 Semmering hillclimb at the wheel of a Bugatti and under the name of "Bripery". He also raced in the 7/6/31 Lwow Grand Prix, car unknown, but crashed. In 1935 he was second in the 2-litre class at Grossglockner at the wheel of a Bugatti.
In another class of that same event Walter von Wustrow was fourth with an MG sportscar. With the same car the previous year he had been second in the 1100 sportscar class at Klausen.
The name of Charlie Jellen first appears in the 1930 Gaisberg hillclimb when, at the age of 21, he drove a Bugatti T40. The following year he won the 3-litre sportscar class of the Zbraslav-Jiloviste hillclimb with a Bugatti 35B, and was successful in German hillclimbs with that car and, apparently, a 35C as well. He also raced in that year’s Lwow GP but crashed.
With the 35B in 1932 he was third fastest overall in the La Turbie hillclimb and fourth in the Lückendorf event. Running usually in sportscar trim he won his class at Gaisberg, Freiburg-Schauinsland and Hohenstein and was second at Klausen and Mont Ventoux. Most of these were important events and Jellen was competing against some very good drivers.
For 1933 he bought a Monza Alfa Romeo, racing it in the 2/7 Marne GP at Rheims (unplaced) and the Nice GP (seventh). On the hills he won the sportscar class in the Riesengebirge event and was second in the same class at Würgau, where he was also second overall, a placing he repeated at Ratisbona. He was second sportscar at Semmering on 24/9 but crashed fatally at Forstenrieder Park

David,
According to A-Z Motorwelt 1930, No. 29/30, which reported about this race, H. Ostermuth von Tschaikoff, from the town of Weidling (1.1-liter 6-cyl. Amilcar) was taking part in the 1.5-liter class race, which ran simultaneously with the big cars of Nuvolari, Caracciola, von Morgen and others. In the 1.5 class, Ostermuth had fallen back to seventh after three laps, ninth after 12 laps and at the end Ostermuth was flagged off, having completed only 16 laps of 17 required. He also had exceeded his time limit, which allowed the 1.5-liter cars 45 minutes time to complete the distance after the winner had passed the finish. The 750 cc cars were given 60 minutes time. There was no separate time given for 1100 cc cars. Ostermuth had his Amilcar also entered for the 1931 Masaryk Circuit Race but did not show up in the 1.5-liter class, which saw 20 entries but only 11 starters.

Until now there existed no abstract about Charley Jellen. During investigation of this subject, I stumbled across bits and pieces of nonsense, about his death ditto. I hope that the enormous amount of time spent for this exercise was worth the effort.

The lanky Charles (“Charley”) Jellen was born 1909 in Znaim, Czechoslovakia and later lived for many years in Graz, Austria. After 1932 he moved to München, Bavaria, where he started a car dealership. Despite living in Germany, he was still considered an Austrian driver.

The name of this young, dashing driver appeared first in the records during 1930. Over the next three years, he achieved many class wins with Bugatti, primarily at mountain races in Austria, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Romania and Switzerland. As of 1933, he banded together with Paul Pietsch and formed the Team Pietsch-Jellen. Each had a 2.3-liter Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza, which were later bored to 2.6-liter. They entered together many mountain races and while Pietsch started in the racing class with fenders removed, Jellen entered the sports car class and thereby both often won at the same day. His many class victories at mountain races made him well known. As upcoming private driver he often raced against stronger opposition, drivers with factory support or straight factory entries.

The well liked Charly Jellen, still at the beginning of his racing career, was only 25 when he died on May 7, 1934 during a test drive with his Alfa Monza on the Ingolstadt highway, north of München. In the turn Neuherberge, on the well-known world record stretch used by Ernst Henne with his BMW, the car left the road and flipped over. Jellen received a scull fracture and other serious injuries. He was brought immediately to the Schwabing hospital, north in München, where he soon succumbed to his severe injuries. He had planned to enter the upcoming Avusrennen with his friend Paul Pietsch during May.

Do you have anything to make searches easier on these three names (years, events, results)?



David and Andrzej, thanks for the information.
This leaves my question in regards to the 1932 – Mar 24, La Turbie Race. Will somebody please supply the time of the first three cars? :)

Hans,
I am interested in years 1930-1933 (events, results, cars - of course without GP Lwow). And I am looking for forename mr Ostermuth.

Only to explain: Lands of Czech Crown (Czechia, Moravia ans Silezia) was part of Austo-Ungarian Impery until 1918. Then merged with Slovakia to be Czechoslovakia until 1991. So Znaim (in Czech Znojmo) in 1909 was not in Czechoslovakia, is not today. It is in South Moravia (not far from Austrian border) in Czech Republic.

Andrzej,
These drivers have been so insignificant that it is very hard to find information about them. If you want me to search for Hubert Sachsel, Walter Wustrow or H. Muschik, you need to help with some information like a certain year, event or car (make) they had driven, possibly sports or touring cars. These drivers were tiny minnows in a large pond full of fish - therefore hard to find, if you understand what I mean. :)

H. Ostermuth von Tschaikoff is also a minnow, therefore I cannot see or find more under my magnifying glass.

Emil Frankl: I work on a brief abstract of this minnow. But I don't think we can turn him into a fish.

Maurice Louche is a very meticulous researcher that publishes his own works.

He can be reached at

There is also a phone number but I will refrain from publishing it. Should anybody be interested I will provide it.

Hans,
you might want to add to Jellen's profile what is certainly his outstanding contribution to motorsport.
He introduced a most vivacious lady called Ilse Engels née Hubasch to Paul Pietsch in 1933. [source P. Pietsch interviewed by G. Terruzzi for the book Una Curva Cieca, p. 142]

Thanks Alessandro -
Ilse Pietsch's maiden name was Engel (according to the book Doppelsieg by Mike Riedner). When she was 17, Ilse had married a businessman from Frankfurt. But the marriage fell apart and she fell in love with Charley Jellen, whom Ilse had met at an airfield race. After her divorce she found out that Jellen did not intend to marry her and that is when Ilse met Paul Pietsch. They were both 23 when they got married in 1934. The men admired the beautiful Ilse. The saying "A beautiful woman is never your own" became then true when she met Achille Varzi who also worshipped the blonde beauty.

His brother Oskar Frankl had raced a BMW without success in the 1930 Masaryk voiturette race. I think either or both of them were ex-motorcyclists.....

Emil and Oscar Frankl - a detailed abstract of Emil is now also at Leif's Web site, which I visit quite regularly: http://www.kolumbus....llman/d3.htm#FA

Emil was the younger brother to Oskar Frankl, an engineer who during the sixties managed a Peugeot dealership in Vienna, Austria. Oscar had raced motorcycles in the mid twenties before he appeared with a 750 cc BMW Dixi, which he entered primarily at mountain climbs in the touring car class as early as 1928. He was not seen racing after Emil's death.

The younger brother, Emil, first appeared at the 1927 Semmering with a touring Bugatti. He was then seen again in 1929 and early 1930 with an old former works Steyr 5.0-liter racer, which he entered at mountain climbs. During 1931 he acquired a 1.5-liter Bugatti T37A and the following year he raced a 2.3-liter T35B. On his trip to England, Emil Frankl had Hubert Papworth, one of the best Bugatti specialist, prepare his car, before he entered the T35B at the Brooklands 500-Mile Race, where as per B.B. "Frankl's Bugatti, after a never very happy run, seized." The Eifelrennen in 1934 was his first race that year and also his last. After Emil Frankl’s death, the Bugatti T35B was acquired by Adolf Brudes in Breslau.

After presumed contact with another car, the Austrian Emil Frankl crashed fatally immediately after the start of the big cars in the 1934 Eifelrennen on June 3. In front of a densely packed crowd and amongst the tightly bunched cars, his little Bugatti left the road at more than 100 mph and tumbled over near the end of the starting straight leading into south turn. When the car somersaulted through the air and bounced over the median dividing the track from the return straight on the other side, three wheels and the hood broke off. The unfortunate driver was ejected through the air and landed on the return straight where he lay unconsciously on the concrete edge of the circuit with a cracked skull. But then the big cars came racing out of the south turn on the return straight leading back to the grandstand. Only in the last moment did a marshal managed to wave a yellow flag at the over 100 mph onrushing Mercedes of leader Fagioli, his foot flattening the accelerator. It was an exciting and dangerous moment when the field of cars came racing past, barely avoiding the wreckage, narrowly missing the lifeless, bleeding body of poor Frankl. Thereby they avoided even greater drama while snaking their racing cars through the debris.

Frankl died after he was brought to the Adenau hospital.
