AVUS - Race track and legend (2021) Germany

Post by Hans1906 » 06 Oct 2021 18:53

Another excellent documentary on Arte, this time about the "AVUS":

The "AVUS" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AVUS
It lies just outside Berlin and remains a beloved legend to this day: the Avus, the former racetrack in the German capital. When it opened in 1921, it was the first road in the world on which only cars were allowed to drive. Unique and dangerous, it soon caused protests with its gigantic steep curve. This September it turns 100 years old

*Size of the wallpaper reduced to forum standards, as small as possible.

52 exciting minutes, a little journey through the motorsport history of that time, very worth seeing! :thumbsup:
