Mercedes-Benz race car, Nürburgring
Mercedes-Benz race car calendar
During the mid- to late-1930s nobody in Europe had a race car research and development program that even came close to the enormous success of the Mercedes-Benz effort. The friendship between Germany’s 23rd Chancellor Adolf Hitler and Mercedes-Benz director Jakob Werlin, combined with Hitler’s pride in and endorsement of Mercedes-Benz products, set the stage for the resurgence and European dominance of the Stuttgart-Untertürkenheim based car and truck manufacturer.
Luigi Fagioli, Korpsführer Hühnlein
By 1935 Mercedes-Benz race car drivers like Rudolf Caracciola, Manfred von Brauchitsch, Luigi Fagioli and others under the leadership of Rennleiter Neubauer were dominating races held in places like Pescara, Nürburgring, Tripoli, Spa, Avus, Monza, Monte Carlo, Montlhery, Eifel, etc.
Mercedes-Benz Rennwagen The Mercedes-Benz racing division produced a special desk calendar in a size of 6-3/4 x 10-1/4 inches in which each page contained a beautiful race photo measuring about 4 x 6 inches. At the bottom of each page was a grid of boxes for each of three days subdivided into hourly segments from 8 to 18 (08:00 am to 6:00 pm) hours.

The photographs depict the very latest high-tech Mercedes-Benz race cars at rest and at full throttle at race venues in Europe and Africa, the best of the Mercedes-Benz drivers and pit crews, the Mercedes-Benz race car support caravan, race car transports and even Hitler’s Mercedes-Benz friend, Jakob Werlin.
