Motorcycle racing during the Third Reich
Posted 23 November 2007 - 02:48
I was researching motorcycle racing during the Third Reich when I came across this website. This is my first post.
Q1. Can anyone provide me or direct me to a good overview of the status of motorcycle racing during the Third Reich? I've managed to find bits and pieces on this subject over a number of websites but not a single, coherent, comprehensive overview.
Q2. I have in my collection a 1935 German motorcycle racing license issued by the ONS to Horst Brückner, Born 10.3.08 and living in Chemnitz. Does anyone have any material, including photos, of the motorcycle racing career of the German rider Horst Brückner?
Thanks in advance.

The name Horst Brückner doesn't ring a bell, though.

Thank you both for your replies. I've added your responses to my data.
I agree from what I've been able to find so far that the Third Reich, up until 1939, had an active motorcycle racing program. I was hoping to find a few paragraphs that described, in general, the overall program of local, regional, national and international motorcycle racing that took place.

The German Grand Prix races up to and including 1938, all of the Eifelrennen events and the 1937 Avusrennen included motor cycle classes, usually for 250cc, 350cc, 500cc and sidecar events in support of the Grand Prix cars.
