Please, i'm creatinga very huge archive of car races results from 1878. Someone can give me the full results of the Semmering Hillclimb 1899 and full results of german road races 1899-1900? thanks!

Hans Etzrodt should have the hillclimb stuff...
I doubt it, Ray. Even the late Martin Pfundner, in his history of Austrian motor sport, dismissed the 1899 Semmering climb as dominated by motorised tricycles and didn't even mention the winner's name (Arnold Spitz, De Dion Bouton 2¼ hp). Hans's list suggests the only entrants were tricycles. There might be something more in the Austrian press of the time, of course ...

The Historians should be grateful for that.

thank you very much! i use already a lot of sources like "locomotion automobile", "Allgemeine Automobil-Zeitung", "Motor-Car Journal", "Auto-car Journal", "Automobil Revue", "L'Auto-Velo", "Das Auto", "Auto motor und sport" but i don't find archives of german races from end of XIX centuries until 1939, only some reports on other sources...
for english races i have the DVD of Motorsport Magazine from 1924, but there are other sources online? again thanks!

Hi Roberto,be careful with old Motorsport Magazine articles, I have found tons of errors about early motoring, so always double check the infos you find on that magazine. For the Germans/Austrian races, I dont know nothing better that http://anno.onb.ac.at/, the search engin is very powerful and is quite easy to find articles by keyword, year, theme, newspaper, etc.
me too...a lot o result are different among newspapers, it's difficult to know what is the real...and some races i don't find like the mannheim-pforzheim-mannheim 1899-1900, Mainz-Bingen-Koblenz-Mainz 1900, Aachen-Koblenz 1900, Dolomiten race 1899...i have found only brief results on other magazines...
