Typ C returns to Zwickau
Posted 10 October 2002 - 14:54
On October 23rd 2002, the 100th birthday of Auto Union's Robert Eberan von Eberhorst, a commemorative event will take place at the University of Applied Sciences at Zwickau. Amongst others, Peter Kirchberg and Wolfgang Ullrich will attend. Also, the Auto Union Typ C can be seen on display at the August Horch Museum. It's the first time since the war that an Auto Union racecar returns to the Zwickau factory grounds.
There'll be an R8 too, but that's new stuff, so who cares
And, to complete this message, two pictures:

A picture from the recent Eifel Klassik event, showing the Typ C.

May you'll bring as much printed brochures home, as possible?
Thanks for the tip.

No, sorry, don't know.

Sorry for my ignorance but what is that strange car immediately behind Auto Union in second picture?????
It´s Kurt Baum´s Eigenbau-BMW, the very first Formula 2 car built in the GDR!
And that car behind? Very hard to recognize... Could it be an AFM? Or indeed the EMW monoposto? Brun, do you have something like a programme of that event?

So the car should be indeed the EMW monoposto. Did not know, that it still exists!
No. 211 is of course Rudi Krause´s Reif-BMW.
Pity that I´ve missed it! Would be really interesting to see a programme of that event to see who are the current owners of the cars.

Don't know if we can use the speeches - and we have to get them first, because I won't be able to make it to Zwickau and I don't know anyone who is...
